WESTON, Wis. (WSAU) – A delegation of Presbyterian ministers from Wisconsin has voted to allow ordaining openly gay members.

Leaders with the Winnebago Presbytery reached its vote Saturday in Weston. The presbytery represents about 8,000 members in 40 churches across north central and northeast Wisconsin.

It is the 28th such presbytery in the country to record its support. A majority of the 170 presbyteries in the country must support the change for it to take effect.

Supporters said it would have gone against their religious beliefs to not allow the ordination of gay pastors. But opponents say the vote does not solve the problem of homosexuality in the church or allow for churches to separate without facing reprecussions.
