Lutherans reject sexually active Gay clergy

On August 12th, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) voted 51% opposed 49% in favor of a motion that would have allowed homosexual clergy to be non-celibate (or practicing). The motion required a 2/3 majority to pass. A measure that upholds the current ban on same-sex wedding ceremonies was also passed, but the language of the ban was made somewhat more ambiguous.
