ELCA (the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America: 4.6 million members) approved this resolution on 21 August 2009, by a vote of 559 to 451, at their biennial Churchwide Assembly in Minneapolis. Previously, celibate homosexuals were allowed to be ordained. Now, it is required that a commitment to one (sexual) partner is the norm.
By so doing, it has removed itself from historic Protestant orthodoxy and moral teaching and makes inevitable a schism within the ranks that may be as momentous as that which has plagued Anglicanism, for the same reasons.
The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS) has denounced the decision, as have the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), and the Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS).
