"This was a remarkable [General Assembly] many ways... A historic first was achieved: this was the first time a marriage equality overture was debated and voted on the plenary floor. This is only the third GA to have marriage equality overtures. An overture to amend W-4.9001 to expand the language of marriage from a 'man and a woman' to 'two people' nearly won by a vote of 308-338 which is 48 to 52%. We see this action as losing forward and believe that marriage equality can be won at GA in Detroit in 2014."

-- From a More Light Presbyterians newsletter touting the organization's work on advancing LGBT issues within the church.
