Presbyterian Minister Acquitted

So here is some good news:

The Presbyterian Minister in California that was being tried for performing same-sex marriages was acquitted of charges of violating her denomination's rule banning same-sex marriages.

The religious court found that the rules surrounding marriage were a definition, not a directive, and noted the minister was acting in accordance with the standars of the region. This ruling presumably opens the door for other ministers in the area to start preforming gay weddings without facing a trial of their own. One step forward if you ask me.
