    Amen!

    Now, I'm just waiting for my church, The United Methodist Church, to officially do the same. icon_redface.gif It' so sad when churches refuse to ordain GLBT individuals because these people are committed to serving God in a profession that generally does not pay well, or nothing, at all; these individuals give their heart, mind, and soul to doing what they love!

    Excellent!

    Once again proving that it is not religion we need to fear, but the idiots who use religion to promote hate.

    Awesome! They've joined the Episcopalians (although some of their members talk of a split because of the gay issue), and I think a branch of the Lutheran Church also has OK'd gay ordinations. Slowly but surely the mainstream Protestant churches are seeing the light. As for our enemies and nemeses the Catholic Church, Mormon Church and their priesthood--and don't even get me started on the evangelicals/fundamentalists--we have to keep pounding on them to show them the error of their ways.
