The Lutheran Church Allows Gays To Serve As Ministers!

| Filed under: Gay Gay Gay

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has lifted the ban denying sexually active gays and lesbians the right to serve as ministers!!!

Bravo!!!!

The ban had previously prohibited members of the gay and lesbian community who were not celibate from becoming ministers for the church, but now gays and lesbians in "committed relationships" may be hired by ELCA congregations as ministers!

An impressive 68% of the 1,000 members of ECLA's national assembly agreed to lift the ban in a vote taken on Friday.

Although many members of the clergy are troubled by the ECLA's decision, the fight for equal rights in the clergy overruled the naysayers' beliefs.

Said Rev. Leslie Williamson of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Des Plains, Ill: ”I have seen these same-gender relationships function in the same way as heterosexual relationships — bringing joy and blessings as well as trials and hardships. 'The same-gender couples I know live in love and faithfulness and are called to proclaim the word of God as are all of us.”

This is one giant step in the right direction!

    The complete passage describes how a group of Christians left the church, converted to Paganism, and engaged in orgiastic, presumably heterosexual sexual activities. This type of behavior was common among Pagan fertility religions in Rome during Paul's time. Paul writes that, later, God "gave them over" to something new: homosexual behavior. This implies that they had a heterosexual orientation and had engaged only in heterosexual sex throughout their lifetime. God influenced them in some way to engage in homosexual orgies. This was, for them, an unnatural, and thus sinful, activity.
    *
    Paul criticized them because they were engaged in sexual activity which was unnatural for them. For a person with a heterosexual orientation, homosexual behavior is "shameful," "unnatural," "indecent," and a "perversion." The passage in Romans is not a condemnation of homosexual behavior. Rather, it disapproves of sexual behavior that is against a person's basic nature (i.e. homosexual behaviors by people whose orientation is heterosexual).
    *
    For the vast majority of adults, those who are heterosexual, it is indecent for them to engage in homosexual activities. One can interpret Paul's writing as stating that, for the small minority of humans who are homosexual, it would be indecent for them to engage in heterosexual activities.
    *
    Romans 1:26-27 make no statement regarding those who are BiSexual.

    Re: kissmyassobama – hi you little bitch, the bible is not god words. Neither god nor Jesus wrote the bible himself.. MAN wrote the bible
    MANY MANY years after the death of Jesus. If this "holy book" is so great, why did it take many many years to be written by man, and the stories in it chosen by man and has been translated chosen by man and passed down and changed by man many many times.
    NO ONE should trust this book that was written by man…

    And when I go to hell, I will have all of you over for dinner!!!

    Re: Aussieone – wow way to get it all wrong so ridiculous



  28. 228

    Re: Aussieone – you are thinking with your pervted mind so now all declarations of love and friendship are sexual or homosexual? this is what the bible calls a reprobate mind.



  29. 229

    Re: Aussieone – you have got to be kidding? men who molest boys are homosexual pedophiles not hetero really what planet are you from?

    Re: ERRRBOOO
    *
    No where have I argued that men who sleep with boy are not pedophiles..
    I have only pointed out that "73% of pedophiles are straight"
    after Angleeyes made the point to KDIZZLL that "pedophile does not equal gay"
    *
    Im not sure if you have reading difficulties or made an honest mistake ??
    *
    While im sure you must have thought it ment dirty or perverted a reprobate mind is in fact a mind with out god.. Given that Ive already told you I dont believe in god… Kind of pointless statement dont you think ? Its not a real world word its much like Ewok language from the also fictional universe of Star Wars Its has no meaning to my life.

    Nothing pervese about anything I wrote regarding my belief that the bible contains three same sex relationships. Those of Ruth and Naomi,
    David and Jonathan, & Daniel and Ashpenaz.
    *
    I have provided my reasoning along with those statments.
    *
    So again its not pervese its just an understanding of the language and basic reasoning and logic but given your belief I guess that may well infact be way beyond your ability!
