The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America released its new social statement! Now the church "acknowledges the validity of same-sex relationships that are 'chaste, monogamous and lifelong.'" That's great news for... Hall and Oates.

Or for any men or women in a lifelong, chaste same-sex relationships! Be you The Golden Girls, Penn & Teller, Jay & Silent Bob, Laverne and Shirley, or Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, you now have the official blessing of the Lutheran Church to be bros for life.

(N.B.: Despite the word "evangelical" these are the mainline Protestant Prairie Home Companion Lutherans.)
