Target: Moderator of the Presbyterian Church, Heath Rada
Goal: Thank the Presbyterian Church for formally allowing and redefining gay marriage in the church.
Many gay Protestants can now formally get married in their church thanks to a recent decision by church officials. The Presbyterian Church, one of the most popular protestant denominations, has officially approved gay marriage. The Presbyterian Church deserves the highest praise for its inclusive and progressive actions.
The Presbyterians are the largest Protestant group to accept and allow gay marriage in the church. Church officials have been supporting a new definition of the word “marriage” for the past year, but it wasn’t until this past week that the majority of the denomination’s 171 districts voted yes to the new definition. Marriage is now redefined as “a commitment between two people.” The change will take full effect on June 21, 2015.
This change is a victory for the Presbyterian Church, specifically its LGBT members who have yearned for the right to get married while still remaining faithful to their church. This action is a step in the right direction for all national churches. It could be influential for other churches that are deciding if they should allow gay rights and marriage.

Dear Heath Rada,
The recent decision for the Presbyterian Church to accept and redefine gay marriage is commendable, and we are writing to thank you and all other church officials who were responsible in making this happen.
This change is a victory for the Presbyterian Church, specifically its LGBT members who have yearned for the right to get married while still remaining faithful to their church. Your actions have created a generous and accepting atmosphere for your members. Hopefully, this news can be influential to other churches that are deciding if they should allow gay rights and marriage.
Thank you for your decision. We encourage you to continue working on making the church a place of acceptance.
