an iffy day to be a Lutheran


This afternoon, the ELCA assembly will vote on their sexuality policies...whether or not to bless same-sex unions, whether or not to allow the future ordination of practicing gay men and women in committed relationships, and what to do about those gays and lesbians already ordained, both celibate and non. This vote will be the culmination of fours years of research and study by an appointed task force.

This is an interesting time. Technically, I am an employee of the ELCA because I work for a Lutheran church in the ELCA synod. Therefore, the results of these votes will have an impact on me, in one way or another. There is talk of a schism, like the Anglicans and the Episcopalians, but I don't think we are in danger of that.

I am an advocate for tolerance and inclusion. I believe in unity and acceptance and civil rights. I hope the ELCA will make the right decision.

Crap. I guess disallowing anonymous comments didn't help stop you blog spammers. A-holes.

this is preposterous. I hope Blogger jumps on this & puts it to a quick halt.

Newsflash:

"Definitely" is not spelled with an "a".

The ELCA votes go terribly awry. They then look for all descending opinions and hire Donald Trump to place a very interesting phone call..."Yah fiyed!"

And I agree. This is definatly a good blog. :)

Just funnin'.
