Luthreans to vote on gays

The ELCA General Assembly will be voting in August on what to do with homosexuals. This is not as liberal an approach as the Episcopalians, or the UCC, it does have the President of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America worried about a possible split in his organization. The voting options for members are:

_affirm the church ban on ordaining sexually active gays, but allow bishops or church districts called synods to seek an exception for a particular candidate;

_uphold the denomination's prohibition against same-sex blessings, but give bishops and pastors discretion in deciding how to minister to gay couples;

_call for unity despite differences over what the Bible says about homosexuality.
Am I the only one who sees very little difference between one and two and that three is effectively sticking their heads in the sand?
