Yesterday, it was offically announced that the Lutheran Church will accept and ordain practicing Gay and Lesbian ministers!!!!!
It is about f-ing time. I have been seriously considering leaving the church for a more accepting practice. Before this, the stance was that you could be gay or lesbian, but you had to be celebate. Ummm, since that last part of the words Hetero and Homo is sexual, what kind of sense does that make??? That would make you asexual, not homosexual!
Of course the bigots in my church are already planning "meetings" and my mom is afriad that they will try to convince the church to go "independant" but they better be ready for a fight, because I am totally pumped up for one.
Yeah - progress! Yeah - acceptance! Yeah- Lutherans!
