The good and bad game

I learned that the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America approved a new statement on sexuality that "recognizes the ministries of congregations which conduct blessings of same-gender relationships and same gender marriages where such marriages are legal ... [and honors] the centrality of family in the life of church and society – all families without differentiation.”


Of course, I heard this from a FB friend who pointed out that a Lutheran church near the conference was righteously destroyed by a conservative tornado at the same time the statement was being approved.


(oh, and Happy Birthday, HPL!)
