"The ordination of gay rabbis and the sanctioning of same-sex marriage within
Conservative Judaism is near certain, according to movement leaders who spoke at
a meeting in New York on Thursday night."
I can see two reasons beyond the obvious why this is good news. First, many Christians base the opinion on the morality of homosexuality from the Hebrew Scriptures, especially the sin of the residents of Sodom. The sin of Sodam has nothing to do with homosexuality, and this is belated recognition of this fact. (Ancient Rabbis have always know this). This might open some eyes.
Second, most of our opponents are not haters; they are sheep. They will go where the shepherd leads them.
With this change in policy, 2/3rds of Jewish congregations now accept full equality for gays, making Judaism the first great faith whose majority of congregations except full citizenshp for gay people.
