His Blended Family

Good news
for gays and les-byterians

The Holy Intermediary
Between Church and State

also known as
the top legislative body
of the Presbyterian Church USA

just voted to allow
their ministers
to preside over gay weddings

in states where
same-sex marriage is legal.

This follows
the decision
of the Episcopal Church in 2013

which follows
the decision
of the United Church of Christ
in 2005

which follows
the eleventh commandment
of God
in 4000 BCE

"Thou shalt not
impede the union
of a male and female

female and female
or male and male

so long as the couple
is not dressed
in polyester shirts or pants

because we're in
the middle of the desert
and I hate to see

my creations suffer."
