"This is not simply rules and procedures for implementing something new. We have these policies because we are committed to having the kind of leaders who will serve the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who will respect this church and other churches, and who will have the world in view."

--Rev. Stanley Olson, executive director, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) Vocation and Education, on the church's decision "to allow Lutherans in same-gender relationships to serve as pastors of congregations and serve in other professional leadership roles."
