Rev. Jim Rigby posted this explanation for the admission of atheist Robert Jensen to membership at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Austin which he pastors.
Note that he chose to put this on a political website rather than sending it to presbyweb.com or the Presbyterian Outlook website or one of the progressive PCUSA websites like Witherspoon Society or Covenant Network. Any of those sites would have published it. Hmmm.
Rigby's defense is wordy and prolix. He totally evades the issue which is that membership in a PCUSA church requires profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior under our Book of Order.
