Homosexuality in Halakhah IX

The Jewish Week is reporting that four members of the (Conservative) Rabbinical Assembly's Committee on Jewish Law and Standards have resigned following today's vote (link, and now The Forward and JTA):

In the wake of the vote, four socially conservative members of the Conservative movement — Rabbi Joel Roth, Rabbi Mayer Rabinowitz, Rabbi Leonard Levy and Rabbi Joseph Prouser — resigned from the law committee.
Perhaps I am being overly dramatic, but I believe that this marks the end of the long death throes of the halakhic wing of the Conservative movement.
