Rev. Jane Spahr: Guilty as Charged for Administering Gay Weddings

Well, another unfortunate but not unexpected ruling from the Presbyterian Church (USA) and its Synod of the Pacific - Rev. Jane Spahr was tried and found guilty for administering weddings of two lesbian couples in 2004 and 2005.

Although expected, this ruling is still unpleasant. Rev. Spahr commented on the ruling, saying, “I am deeply saddened that our church has chosen not to recognize the loving relationships of members of its own family. The church’s pervasive attitude of prejudice promotes violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.”

Rev. Spahr is retired.
