Weblog has been overwhelmed with all the church convention news. (See our dispatches from Columbus, Ohio, on ECUSA's General Convention.) So we're just posting links of articles from last Saturday through today.
Here are some highlights: Presbyterians (PCUSA) get creative with the Trinity and allow local jurisdictions to break ban non ordaining self-avowed practicing gays. Episcopalians reject banning gay bishops, kind of. The Vatican asks Amnesty International not to push for worldwide decriminalization of abortion. And a Christian football film was not given a PG rating for its religious themes.
