The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has voted, in its churchwide assembly, to accept noncelibate clergy members and lay leaders who are in "lifelong" and "monogamous" same-sex relationships.

One of the individuals quoted in the article was Alan Wold of the Northern Illinois Synod, who said:

"If according to some I am going to be in [error] for supporting this... Let me err on the side of mercy, grace, justice, and love of neighbor. Let me err on the side of gospel, which makes all things new."

Yes.  Yes.  A thousand times...Yes.
