Meet the 95 Lutheran Clergy Who Just Came Out


This week the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, which has quite possibly the gayest logo of any religious entity, is meeting in Minneapolis to vote on whether the church will permit sexually active gays from joining the clergy. Yes, mere human mortals will decide which type of people are permitted to get closer to god. And as a lead-up to the vote? Ninety-five clergy members came out.

A booklet called One Table, Many Blessings is being distributed amongst church members to show just how many people will be affected if the vote goes against LGBTs. The booklet includes the names of the 95 “actively gay” clergy members, some of whom have families.

Currently, only celibate gays can join the clergy, because they’re less fabulous.
