Faiths' beliefs on homosexuality vary

An overview from the Houston Chronicle of how the homosexual issue issue is being dealt with in the major denominations. The Episcopal Church is not alone. I found the excerpt below interesting as I bet Gustav may create a different reality.

The issue of gay clergy is hotly debated in many faith communities today. "Clearly we are on a journey," said the Rev. Susan Russell, president of Integrity USA, a national network of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered Episcopalians that supports gay ordination.

Integrity is one of a number of groups sponsoring Many Stories, One Voice, the first North American convocation of pro-LGBT Christians, meeting in New Orleans Sept. 4-7.
