Lutherans opposed to 'gay' clergy form new U.S. denomination
The nation's newest church denomination has been created by Lutherans breaking away from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, which approved gay clergy in a contentious vote last year.
The new North American Lutheran Church's provisional Constitution was approved Friday morning at a meeting in Ohio, with 18 churches in 12 states from Pennsylvania to South Dakota signed on as charter members of the new church body.
Formation of the North American Lutheran Church is the culmination of long-standing divisions within the ELCA that date to the 1990s. Last year, those divisions deepened when the ELCA voted to allow non-celibate gay pastors to serve in its 10,239 congregations....
""Formation of the North American Lutheran Church is the culmination of long-standing divisions within the ELCA that date to the 1990s. Last year, those divisions deepened when the ELCA voted to allow non-celibate gay pastors""
The critical point here is that it took them so long to perceive that ELCA was wrong and UNBiblical in its philosophy.
