Norway’s Lutheran Church votes to allow same-sex marriage.

Norway’s Lutheran Church votes to allow same-sex marriage. April 12, 2016

Norway’s Lutheran Church is getting with the times:

Norway’s Lutheran Church voted on Monday in favor of allowing same-sex marriage, becoming the latest of a small but growing number of churches worldwide to do so.

Last year the French Protestant Church allowed gay marriage blessings, while the U.S. Presbyterian Church approved a change in the wording of its constitution to include same-sex marriage.

In a vote at the annual conference of the Norwegian Lutheran Church on Monday 88 delegates out of 115 in total backed same-sex marriage.

I can imagine what that press release looked like.  “Whoops!  It turns out that we’ve had Jesus’ will wrong the last 2,000 years!  Silly us!  And to think, the gay people were being more Christ-like than we were this entire time.  What a goof!  What?  You want to know if we’re going to take out the bible verses about killing people?  Oh no, we couldn’t do that.  God is all wise and everything.”

Or…

“Whoa!  In a shocking turn of events, Jesus has determined that right now, when gay marriage is meeting with massive public approval, that morality ought to change.  Hallelujah!”

Fucking hell, guys — just admit that you know better than the bible.
