How can there be a problem with this?
The 136,000 members opposed to same-sex marriage have left the church. The 114,000 left should have no problem with it, since the church itself estimates that 70,000 of members remaining on the rolls no longer participate.
With only 16% of the original membership still participating, combine that with claims by homosexual rights activists that "10% of the population is gay," and it might say a lot about why the church is no longer opposed to same sex marriage.
Is it divine revelation, or merely changing demographics?

Also according to former Pres.McMurry there never was a falling away,restoration of the priesthood,or other restored truths.So ya it should have been a shue in.

The problem with the liberals currently in the priesthood is that the ultimate implications of their teachings is that they have no authority to be teaching at all.
Gahan Wilson drew a cartoon of a bandit trying to rob a pawn shop. It perfectly illustrated the claims of the Community of Christ leadership. The bandit was captioned as saying, "Give me all your money and one of those REAL guns."
The current leadership basically is saying, "The CofC priesthood has no authority, and we have the authority to make you believe this because we say so by the authority of that priesthood."
