Conference of Ministers of Evangelical Lutheran Church of Iceland in Heated Debate over Allowing Homosexual Couples to Marry

According to the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service, RÚV, a "heated debate" took place on Thursday of this week when a group of ministers of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Iceland challenged their colleagues to permit the Church to marry homosexual couples. It is reported that a committee is drafting a resolution that includes language that would permit ministers to bless the relationships of homosexuals. Some ministers want to go even further and marry homosexual couples. The Bishop of Iceland said  that many wedding ceremonies had become "phony" with no connection to the true values and solemnest of matrimony.
