What Would Luther Do?

The headline today read:

Lutherans to allow pastors in gay relationships

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Homosexual Lutheran clergy who are in sexual relationships will be able to serve as pastors, the largest U.S. Lutheran body said on Saturday.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) passed a resolution at its annual assembly urging bishops to refrain from disciplining pastors who are in "faithful committed same-gender relationships."

This is where Reuters made a mistake. This organization is no longer Lutheran. They know full well Martin Luther would have never condoned such teachings. It's time they changed their name.
