THIS WEEK: Lutherans Will Yay Or Nay the Gays


The 4.8 million member Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is expected, by Friday, to vote on whether to allow sexually active gays to serve in the clergy. As it stands, if you’re a celibate gay, you’re OK! Now the church will decide whether clergy members can unzip their pants and still be worthy of a parish — and how many dioceses it wants to scare away. Which is funny, because every other church in America seems to be deciding the same thing right now.
