Lutherans Organize after Vote on Gays

Ad Feedback

Conservative Lutherans are considering leaving their denomination over the issue of gays serving in the church's clergy.
     
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America voted in August to allow non-celibate homosexuals to serve in the ministry.
     
Now, a group called Lutheran CORE says it might leave the denomination of 4.7-million members.
     
At a recent meeting attended by 1,200 people, CORE chairman Paul Spring received a standing ovation when he said the ELCA "has fallen into heresy."
     
The group voted to have a committee study whether they should stay, form a new denomination, or join another.
     
The committee will give its recommendation in one year.
