Post ELC Splits The Baby On Gay Clergy 
http://tinyurl.com/koucuv

The Evangelical Lutheran Church split the baby by agreeing to allow gay clergy who are involved in "chaste, monogamous, lifelong relationships".

Choose your definition of "chaste". Here's one from the Internet:

chaste

1 morally pure (especially not having experienced sexual intercourse); "a holy woman innocent and chaste"
2 chaste
abstaining from unlawful sexual intercourse
3 chaste
pure and simple in design or style; "a chaste border of conventionalized flowers"

Post ELC Votes To Allow Active Gays As Clergy 
http://tinyurl.com/mn7jmm

In a contentious vote, the Evangelical Lutheran Church passed a measure that will allow gay people in sexually active relationships to serve as clergy. Those opposing the plan remain unbowed. Will they split off and form their own denomination over the disagreement?
