Gay pastor’s bid for inclusion denied | ajc.com

Perhaps they should leave the ELCA if they disagree.

The Rev. Bradley Schmeling lost another skirmish with the nation’s largest Lutheran denomination over the fact that he is in a gay relationship.

But he and his flock at Atlanta’s St. John’s Lutheran Church intend to take the battle national.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America announced Thursday it has removed Schmeling from its list of approved ministers because of his long-term relationship with a man.

    The ELCA had no problems when they hired him as a minister when he was a single and looking gay man but once he had a longterm monogamous relationship they have a problem. Doesnt make sense to me.

    Come on guys-

    What the Schmel is wrong with you two?
    Shall we make it the 96 Thesis?

    No Perverts in Leadership!

    We have enough trouble already with just
    everyday drama – Why must me have ” Preacher
    Panty Waist” telling families how to be functional.

    STOP SCREWING UP OUR KIDS!
    They have enough problems – without the Church leading them into a toilet for fornicating
    sodomites standing.
