The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America has elected to a six-year term the denomination's first openly gay bishop.

The church's rules changed in 2009 to allow gays and lesbians to be ordained in the nation's largest Lutheran denomination.

Chris, and for John U.K.'s information, there are several Lutheran groups, the one in the article, which might be the largest one in the U.S., Missouri Synod, which tilts either liberal or conservative depending on its leadership, and I believe the small Wisconsin Synod is quite conservative.

It is a shame that the ELCA fell into these heresies, they charities are noteworthy. They had an excellent conservative heritage also in theology, I think you'll find Professor Shodde's work, e.g., Interpretation as just about as good as anyone's of today. He belonged to the church that became the ELCA.

I would hope that this denomination would split between conservative and liberal churches so that at least,

1 Corinthians 5
6 Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough?
7 Clean out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed.---NASB

Some really bad yeast has gotten into the ELCA.

Correct! They shot off out of the Catholic church under Martin Luther, being anathematised, hassled and excommunicated, for believing a strange doctrine called "being saved by faith in Jesus Christ".
