Lutherans Support Same Gender Relationships

From here:

Resolved that the ELCA commit itself to finding ways to allow congregations that choose to do so to recognize, support, and hold publicly accountable, life-long, monogamous same gender relationships.
The vote was 61% yea and 39% nay.

This has been confirmed by tweets (#elca, #cwa09, #goodsoil09). Apparently, it sounds like it was announced that using twitter during plenary sessions was "inappropriate," so little info is getting out.

This afternoon will bring us the vote regarding gay clergy. You can view the session live here. It begins at 2:00 central time.

Keep praying.


UPDATE: The Lead is also covering this.

This action now appears on the official Assembly Voting Results page.
