Highland Park Presbyterian Votes to Leave PCUSA

Highland Park Presbyterian Church (HPPC) has voted to leave the mainline PCUSA by a 1337 to 170 margin.

The irony of this is that back in 1991, that congregation split practically down the middle over whether to stay in the PCUSA.  Those determined to leave formed Park Cities Presbyterian Church.  So today’s Highland Park Presbyterian are the descendants (spiritually at least) of those who decided to stay behind in the mainline Presbyterian Church.

Yet even they have had enough and are now leaving the PCUSA.  Needless to say, that says volumes about how far gone is the mainline Presbyterian Church.

(By the way, I find this particularly interesting as I irregularly attended HPPC as a child.)
