Emergent Clarity?

In a rare show of clarity in stating a position on an issue of belief, Emergent leader Tony Jones says this:

I now believe that GLBTQ can live lives in accord with biblical Christianity (at least as much as any of us can!) and that their monogamy can and should be sanctioned and blessed by church and state.
(In case you need translation, GLBTQ = gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual/transgendered, and queer people).

Read the whole thing here. Seems to kind of go against Brian McLaren's call for a "five year moratorium" on making judgments regarding homosexuality. Tony seems to be going against the grain of the emerging/emergent postmodern vagueness and stating a belief. Of course, with no basis (Biblical or otherwise) for it.
