Lutherans Vote YES!

The Evangelical Lutheran Church just voted to allow partnered gay clergy. In particular, the Lutherans voted to adopt the following (or something very close to it):
RESOLVED, that the ELCA commit itself to finding a way for people in such publicly accountable, lifelong, monogamous, same-gender relationships to serve as rostered leaders of this church.
The vote was approximately 60% for.
