Presbyterian Church (USA) Passes Vote Allowing LGBT Ordainment

Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people can now become priests or ministers in the Presbyterian Church (USA). Advocates call the passing of this vote a major milestone. Others fear it could spark a crisis within one of America's oldest mainline Protestant denominations. Host Michel Martin speaks with Rev. Janet Edwards of More Light Presbyterians, a group advocating on behalf of gays serving in the ministry.
