    It is about time, isn’t it? Gays have BEEN the church for centuries and have been treated as dirt from a few Biblical passages. I wonder how Freud would have dealt with Paul. As in public universities, our great, and they are great, Lutheran colleges teach that we are under the forces of NATURAL LAW as long as we are on this Earth. A few desert wanderers’ writings, if taken all literally would make you a psychiatric case! Luther said the Word is not the Word until it is spoken. The Canon technically is not closed so we should have Modern Church Fathers and Sisters. Lutheran theology needn’t be made of less value by saying that gays and others, (usually undesirables) are any less in God’s eyes. Christ would not support modern state sexual codes and I doubt he would condemn gays. Muslims do enough of that already and, if not careful, we’ll all become like Dearborn, MI and places in the UK where Brits must follow sharia law when in Muslim neighborhoods. Oh for the love and kindness of religion.
