ELCA is effectively Lutheran in name only. There are a couple really conservative churches there, mainly staying to be a thorn to the rest. Things like abortion are really wishy-washy. The synod also sort of accepts homosexuality as an acceptable lifestyle, basically surrendered to the Roman Catholics on justification. Unfortunately, usually the worst stuff gets reported.

Thank you for all your insights.

Years ago I worked with a fellow who was Missouri Synod,
who shared some of features of different Lutheran denominations.

I knew that ELCA was liberal, but the Pastor and Pastorette
will receive special treatment for embracing and providing succor
to those who torture and murder of innocent children.

NAsbU James 3:1 Let not many of you become teachers,
my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment.

NAsbU 2 Peter 2:1 But false prophets also arose among the people,
just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will
secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master
who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.
