A prominent Protestant church in Maumee voted overwhelmingly yesterday to leave the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the first in northwest Ohio following the national body’s decision in August to be more welcoming to homosexuals.
Members of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church voted 250-43 with one abstention – an 85 percent approval ratio – to end its affiliation with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). On the same ballot, members also voted to join the Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ.
Ah, yes, the ‘mission for Christ.’ Poor Jesus. What pain that man has endured from the people who pimp his good name. These oh-so righteous Maumee [c]hristians believe that Jesus wouldn’t want them to associate with gays and lesbians. Of course, no where in the NT does Jesus ever turn away anybody from his love.
“Love one another as I have loved you.”
Apparently that command is much too difficult to follow for the Maumee Lutherans.
