Bolbach Elected Moderator

We have a moderator! Cynthia Bolbach won it. Because there were six candidates it took several ballots. Elder Bolbach is a fine choice.
Check out her webpage.

She was one of the two solidly pro-equality candidates:

Those in favor of the full inclusion of gays and lesbians in our life together – and I include myself in that group – believe that we fail to satisfy the Gospel imperative of inclusiveness as we continue to exclude gays and lesbians from leadership in our church.
Quote to remember her by:
I have to admit, up front, that on a personal basis I’d probably rather share a beer with Martin Luther than with John Calvin.
Congratulations, Ms. Bolbach! Party on!
