"The overture includes any identity Christians may profess 'that undermines or contradicts their identity as new creations in Christ,' though it singles out 'gay Christian,' 'same sex attracted Christian' and 'homosexual Christian' among those identities. The denomination already bars any 'practicing homosexual' from ordination." - RNS

"...given some of these recent arguments against the PCA's decision to declare the Nashville Statement to be biblically faithful, I thought it would be helpful to look at the clarity of the Westminster Standards, specifically as to what our standards have to say about sexual ethics and the ordering of sexual desires....While pastoral in nature, they are far more convicting and constricting than the Nashville Statement." - Ref21
