What the Episcopal church in the USA is going through, the state Lutheran church in Germany is facing: Prospect of gay Lutheran bishop divides Germans . He hasn’t been elected yet, but he is one of two candidates.
We confessional types have pretty much written off the state Lutheran churches of Europe. Having a gay bishop is the least of their problems compared to (and related to) the watering down of Scriptural authority and related liberalisms.
