Maria Swearingen and Sally Sarratt became the new leaders of the Calvary Baptist ChurchCalvary Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.

"To outsiders, this may seem like kind of a radical thing that this church welcomed us to co-pastor, but to them, it was truly not a question along the way whether it was ok or not for us to come and be the pastors," Sarratt told WUSA9WUSA9.

It seems to me that this is the first time a lesbian couple has been appointed to head a church.
