Gay Debate.

The Lutheran Church may be face fierce debate as German leaders debate electing openly gay cleric Horst Gorski as bishop. And, of course, the more conservative set are scoffing at the idea, with one saying “Many members of the community would have little understanding for a bishop with this kind of lifestyle.” Lutheran officials refuse take Gorski out of the running, saying that the church has no official stand on the gays.
