Yes, and this is a very promising development. If the courst real this way in some other states, I will bet you that some of these gay priests suddenly feel the need to become Methodists. (Methodists have a more difficult time getting control of their property from the church hierarchy, because the Methodists used more iron-clad language.)

Or maybe they'll change to ELCA Lutheran? They forced a constitution revision on their synods and congregations in 2003 (I think), to give their bishops the power to allow a congregation to leave the denomination. And, the ECUSA and ELCA share bishops, communion and churches (federated congregations in Detroit and Florida).
