Ninety percent of the members of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) oppose changing current denominational policy that forbids ordination of "self-affirming, practicing homosexual persons."

A scientific survey of 3,950 members also found that two-thirds of the members disagree with a current policy that permits ordination of celibate homosexuals.The poll, one of a Presbyterian series regularly taking the pulse of members on a wide range of issues, found that a majority say ordination "signifies that someone has been set apart because of the special gifts that person already possesses."
