Evangelical Lutheran Church implicates Israel in George Floyd death
Jerusalem post ^ | 3 july 2020 | Celia Jean

Posted on 07/29/2020 10:26:36 PM PDT by Cronos

The comment was made during an article published in opposition to Israel's plan to extend sovereignty over parts of the West Bank.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ECLA) has spoken out against Israel's plan to annex parts of the West Bank in a series of articles published on their website, one of which additionally accuses Israel of having had a part in the murder of George Floyd.

The comment was made in an article that mentioned a letter that the ECLA, along with 26 other churches, sent to the US congress in opposition to the annexation plan. The letter demanded that the US government not provide funds for the recognition, facilitation or support of annexation.

"For example, 100 Minneapolis police officers received counterterrorism training from Israelis at a conference held in 2012."...

Another comment associating Israel with Floyd's murder amid opposition to annexation was made during a letter published by Kathryn Mary Lohre, Assistant to the Presiding Bishop of the ELCA and Executive for Ecumenical and Inter-Religious Relations & Theological Discernment on the ECLA's website.

In her letter, she compared Israel's treatment of the Palestinians to the death of George Floyd, who died after a police officer pressed down on Floyd's neck with his knee for nearly eight minutes.

Lohre wrote: "The racism that has kneeled on the necks of Black Americans for 400 years is part of the same global pandemic as the racism that has been kneeling on the necks of Palestinians for 53 years of military occupation, and that has been even more suffocating under Israel’s nation state law, adopted in 2018."

As always, do not confuse the ELCA with real Lutherans.

Well, duh. What took them so long to figure that out? One thing they should have learned by now is to blame the Jews first. I’m sure they’ll get there one of these days.

I blamed Israel as soon as I read about floyd’s untimely demise and the loss of a likely VERY bright future with family and wealth and a long life expectancy based on his past and present actions.

I also blamed Israel earlier today because my socks didn’t dry fast enough and I certainly set the timer right.

And my milk went bad. So there’s that.

I’m so SICK of hearing of black oppression!!

Go to school. get a job, meet a girl, get engaged and married and have some kids and STFU!!!!

You lazy, worthless, self pitying mother ####ers!!!

Disclaimer needed for snowflake freepers: Not all blacks are like that.

ELCA is about as Christian as Pop Francis.

The ultimate troll meme would be a picture of George Floyd wearing a MAGA hat.

Why does Lutheranism remind me of “Arbeit macht frei” und seig heil? Just as Episcopalian reminds me now of deviancy? (Born into, Christened in, and attended the Episcopal Church for most of my life, left long ago.)

Don’t know why you don’t have a clue, but you need to do research if you want to understand.

the ELCA is an apostate sunday social club. They departed Lutheran orthodoxy and christian orthodoxy long ago. I wish they would stop calling themselves Lutheran

WHAT? Oh, yeah, it’s the Jews again.

Those poor people are always to blame for everything.

They are responsible for everything bad in life.
