Married lesbian couple become first to be jointly ordained in US ceremonyA same-sex couple in the US have become the first lesbian pair to be jointly ordained ministers by the Presbyterian Church. Reverends Kaci and Holly Clarke-Porter attended their joint ordination ceremony at the First and Central Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, Delaware, on Sunday afternoon last week. The ceremony comes shortly after members of the national American church voted to expand the church’s definition of marriage, recognising it to be between two individuals rather than simply a man and a woman. The couple, who met at an Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 2009 and married in 2011, hope that their spiritual connection will help them in their future lives and careers.  “I hope that we keep each other energetic and that we’ll continue to hold each other accountable to our ordinations and fight for social justice together,” Holly, 29 told The Huffington Post. Holly, who like her wife was born and raised in Texas, stepped into the breach after Kaci realised she was not suited for the role of associate pastor at First and Central. She’s now the church’s first openly gay clergy member. FULL REPORT
