    There are several inaccuracies in this article:

    1) That picture is not White Clay Creek Presbyterian Church
    2) Presbyterianism is a denomination; Christianity is a faith
    3) The Chancery Court did not approve the settlement; it merely dismissed the litigation and vacated an order.
    4) There are far more reasons than simply matters of sexual orientation that is leading churches to flee the PCUSA. These reasons range from the theological to the political to the financial. To simply claim that White Clay wanted to leave the PCUSA because of homosexuality, or that ECO churches are drawn together solely by opposition to gay marriage or ordination is inaccurate. Moreover, it tacitly smears these churches as acting out of bigotry.
