While acknowledging that such an intentionally vague policy probably won't play well with "the bumper sticker crowd," the bishop of the St. Paul Area Synod, the Rev. Peter Rogness, said it reflects the ELCA's practice of trying to match ministers to congregations. He compared it to a rural congregation feeling that it would rather call a minister with a rural background, for instance.

The commies seem to have learned a valuable lesson. All it takes is a few well-placed individuals to gain effective control over an institution. They’ve changed tactics since Marx’s days.

The ELCA stance on promoting homosexuality is not nearly as disturbing as their pro-abortion stance. A False Church,IMHO.

(Democrats are bastard coated bastards with bastard filling.)
Real Lutherans need to move over to Missouri Synod congregations. They are still very conservative and adhere to pure biblical teachings. Enough of this wishy- washy nonsense from ELCA.

"The Lutheran Church has never imposed anything on anyone," he said. "We never have, and we never will."
Scripture being at the top of the list, evidently. Rampant leftism is why I left the ELCA and this quote just proves why.

(You're either in or in the way.)
It has been over ever since they agreed to link up with the Episcopalian Church, better known as “The Gay Church.”
I predict a formal merger and the resulting denomination will be known as the Lutherpiss Church.
