In a close vote, the Presbyterian Church (USA) today rejected an amendment to the church’s constitution that would have redefined marriage from being between “a man and a woman” to “between two people.”

The General Assembly, held this week in Pittsburgh, has been a Twitter-intensive meeting, giving an especially candid view of the diversity of views of the attendees and those following the Internet live stream.

Initial Twitter reaction to the vote skewed toward the negative.

The Presbyterian Church claims over 2 million members in the United States.
