Great news for our Jewish brothers and sisters.

The Jewish Theological seminary considered the flagship institution of Conservative
Judaism will begin accepting gay and lesbian applicants, after scholars who guide the movement lifted the ban on gay ordination. The Conservative branch holds the middle ground in American Judaism, adhering to tradition while allowing some change for modern circumstances. The larger and more liberal Reform Jewish movement, as well as the smaller Reconstructionist wing presently allow gays to become rabbis. The Conservative branch continues to bar gays and women from ordination. - AP

That's fantastic news. I think eventually it will be the religous moderates that will save America from the fundamentalist fanatics.
