The governing body for eastern North Carolina Presbyterians has rejected a proposal that would allow the ordination of gay clergy.

The Fayetteville Observer reported the proposal was rejected by the Presbytery of Coastal Carolina with 63 percent of Saturday's vote.

The Presbyterian Church (USA) Book of Order requires clergy candidates either to be in a faithful marriage between a man and a woman or to be chaste. The proposal would have removed references to sexual orientation or behavior and would have left the fitness of the clergy up to local presbyteries.



The final result for Presbyterian Church USA won't be known until all 173 presbyteries across the country vote. An official national vote count is due in May.
