Churches with declining membership will not be able to continue supporting their retirement programs with married ministers with dependents.

Ask Fidelity ~ they sell a vast number of retirement programs to nonprofits and churches.

The Presbyterian Church USA has decided they'd rather start competing for what they view as a large number of homosexual ministers just waiting in the wings.

They'll get some, Fur Shur, butin the end there just aren't that many gays who are that involved in church stuff.

This approach is not designed to draw in new members which means that at some date certain the PCUSA will have to start selling real estate to keep the retirement plans funded.

The ELCA has already gone through that on a small scale, undercutting the retired employee pensions of their publishing house, Augsburg. Yet, they persist in chastising ministers and churches who oppose the program.
