  1. It will probably be hard for the denomenations involved to live long with this level of schizophrenia: to hold certain theological views (Biblical views of the family) and work so hard politically to ignore that they in fact hold those views (by campaigning for those opposed to them). Eventually, either the theological commitements or the political will win out. It will be interesting to see which.
