Two bills sent to a June legislative assembly propose a formal split in the 3.6 million-member Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the denominational news service reports. One bill asks the assembly to declare that the church has "two mutually exclusive theologies " on the Bible, causing an "irreconcilable impasse, " especially on whether to ordain homosexual clergy. The second bill would authorize a task force to rewrite church law and allow liberal congregations that disagree with the existing homosexual ban to leave the denomination and keep their buildings. Normally, property reverts to denominational ownership when a congregation quits or disbands. The bills were prepared by the Rev. Jeff Arnold of Butler, Pa., along with a local Evangelical caucus, and approved for national consideration by a unit covering the region north of Pittsburgh, Pa. "We're not trying to create division, " Arnold said. "The division already exists, and nobody has found a way to reconcile the differences. "
