Solution elusive as churches weary of gay clergy debate | ajc.com: "Ron Miller is a member of Druid Hills Presbyterian Church in Atlanta who says he would have 'no problem at all' accepting a gay pastor.
But the genial church elder says he'd rather focus on something else —- and so should other churches.
'A lot of time and energy is being spent by governing bodies and individual churches over this issue,' Miller says. 'That time could be devoted to the real mission of the church: helping the poor, the homeless, the community at large.'
Miller's frustration reflects the weariness in several Protestant denominations. After years of fighting over the acceptance of gay clergy, some church leaders say they're exhausted. The nonstop battles are draining the life from their congregations and driving members away."
