Presbyterian Ch. USA Stalling Korean Church's Effort to Leave Denomination?

A Presbyterian Church (USA) regional body located in California has been accused of putting a Korean congregation’s effort to leave the mainline denomination to a standstill.

Last year, Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church of Rowland Heights voted overwhelmingly to seek dismissal from PCUSA over the denomination’s growing acceptance of homosexuality.

Out of 817 votes casted in the March 2014 vote, 738 voted to leave, 74 voted to stay, and 5 votes were dismissed.

Despite that, the PCUSA Presbytery of San Gabriel has not apparently finalized the dismissal as of this month, according to the Korean-American Christian publication Christianity Daily.

    From the information in this article and the linked article and document it would seem that by the presbytery’s accounting, 738-74 was a close vote and those 74 or so may be the true church. IIRC, I’ve seen calculations and figures like that come up before on this site.
