Same-Sex Unions Accepted

I was delighted by this piece of news:

Same-Sex Unions Accepted by Evangelical Lutherans
Christopher Quinn, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: "Pastors in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America can bless same-sex unions after a vote Friday by delegates at the Churchwide Assembly in Minneapolis. 'I've been a life-long member at Redeemer Lutheran Church [in Atlanta], and I was never comfortable asking my church to bless my relationship,' said Bob Gibeling, who is at the assembly."


Love is a holy thing. Sometimes religion can distract from that, and then it's difficult to untangle the mess. I am proud of the Lutherans for doing the hard work and the right thing.
