Lutheran Church: "Homosexuality is Part of Creation"

From Eponymous Flower (June 17, 2013): "[Darmstadt] The Synod of the Evangelical Church in Hesse and Nassau (EKHN) has largely assimilated the blessing of homosexual couples with the traditional marriage of a man and woman. As the EKHN announced on Saturday, the Synod decided to upgrade the blessing of same-sex partnerships.... "Today, it is assumed that the same-sex orientation belongs to the natural conditions of life. Homosexuality can be seen as part of creation."

A tautology is now used to justify treating a sin as a blessing. Adultery is part of creation too. Should that now be sanctioned by the ELCA? Actually, I have not gone on their website to make sure it's not. Probably buried deep down in some gibberish in one of their statements by ("progressives" need only apply) committee they've probably given their blessing to it.
