Presbyterian Panel Backs Homosexual Ban

March 12, 1985|United Press International

WASHINGTON — A Presbyterian Church panel has upheld the church's ban on ordination of practicing homosexuals, church officials announced Monday.

The officials said the 3.1-million-member denomination's Permanent Judicial Commission--the church's equivalent of a supreme court--has reaffirmed 1978 and 1979 actions by two General Assemblies that barred homosexuals from being ordained into the clergy or as elders and deacons in local congregations.
