Presbyterians rush to embrace the culture.

//In two overwhelming votes, the nation's sixth-largest Protestant denomination approved the practice in the 19 states where same-sex marriage is legal and approved presbytery-by-presbytery decisions to change the definition of marriage from a man and a woman to two people.
The amendment requires approval from a majority of the 172 regional presbyteries, which will vote on the change over the next year.
In 2011, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) approved ordaining clergy with same-sex partners. Since then, 428 of the denomination's more than 10,000 churches have left for other more conservative denominations or have dissolved. The church now has about 1.8 million members.
The General Assembly has committed an express repudiation of the Bible.
Presbyterian Lay Committee, in a statement
Given that Presbyterians are historically an influential denomination, the vote could persuade other Christian groups to follow, say experts.//
Want to bet that the 428 churches where the younger, growing churches?
The article is being deceitful because the UPC has been engaged in doing secretly what it is now doing openly for the last 35 years, during which time the UPC has declined from 4 million to 1.8 million, while United States population growth has increased by 20 to 30%.
And, yet, no one seems interested in asking if there is any connection between the two facts.
