Scottish Episcopal Church to vote on gay marriage in church

From The BBC-

The Scottish Episcopal Church will hold a historic vote later on whether to allow gay couples to marry in church.

If the vote is passed, it will become the first mainstream Christian organisation in the UK to allow same-sex marriage.

However, it will also leave the Church at odds with most of the rest of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

The motion to change canon law on marriage will be debated at the Church's General Synod in Edinburgh.

The proposal would remove the doctrinal clause stating that marriage is between a man and a woman.
It will only be accepted if it receives the backing of at least two thirds of each house of Bishops, Clergy and Laity.
