The Bible NOT the final word on homosexuality: Presiding Bishop of ELCA

This is just one of many reasons why there is such a gulf between the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) and the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod (LCMS) of which I am a part.


CHICAGO - The presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is suggesting that the Bible isn't the last word on homosexuality.

In a town hall meeting Sunday, Bishop Mark Hanson said, "the understanding we have of homosexuality today does not seem to be reflected at all in the context of the biblical writers." Therefore, he said, Lutherans should consider more modern views on sexual orientation.
