Dr Paul Capetz is claimed by many to be a remarkable teacher, a visionary leader and a wonderful human being. I never had him as a professor while at United, but I had other opportunities to meet and listen to this gifted educator.
After many years, he has been vindicated in his own presbytery.
MINNEAPOLIS — The Presbytery of the Twin Cities Area voted Jan. 26 to restore the ordination of Paul Capetz, an openly gay man, as minister of word and sacrament.
Capetz had laid aside his ordination in 2000 in response to the 1997 addition of G-6.0106b to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s Book of Order. The section requires ordained church officers to practice “fidelity within the covenant of marriage between a man and woman or chastity in singleness.”
