Teh Gayz are taking over the synagogues now too

Homosexuals are in.

A follow up to my last post: Three of the 5 papers on the table passed with at least 6 votes, one of which was on the pro-ordination side. This means that Conservative seminaries are now permitted to admit gays and lesbians to their rabbinical and cantorial programs. Starting immediately, UJ will. JTS may follow suit.

Interestingly, all of the 3 papers that passed still forbid anal sex.

Update 6:46pm EST The Jewish Telegraphic Agency posted a longer article.
