The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, which purports 3.5 million members across 9000 churches, and is lucky if even 1% of them are even Christians and true believers, has published a handbook advocating and promoting sexual perversions aimed at “dismantling barriers between people”
The LGBTQQIP2SAA affirming handbook titled “Lutheran Introduction To Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, & Gender Expression” is the demonic handiwork of Reconciling Works and serves to help ELCA churches truly be open and affirming and making newcomers feel welcome by being able to talk the lingo and understand all the minutiae of the progressive sexual identity and expressions.
Whether you’re a “genderqueer, androgynous, boi, gender-fluid,” or a “soft-butch,” or a “dyke-leaning pansexual girlfag,” or a “vaguely butch, vaguely femme, trans male-bodied anarcho-queerion,” (those are all real), or simply just a plain-jane gay or lesbian person, or even a minority cis-gender, the ELCA has come to the rescue with helpful charts and a glossary of terms so that anyone in the church can feel comfortable, making fellow congregants comfortable with themselves, and for attending.
A general statement of welcome is often heard as meaning ‘everybody but me,’ so it can take a special effort to communicate an authentic welcome to LGBTQIA+ people…If you don’t know which identity terms, pronouns or titles to use, and find yourself getting ‘stuck’ on terms, re-center yourself on the fact you are talking about a person. It is also ok to ask which pronouns one prefers, or just avoid using gendered terms. Remember, all you need to welcome someone is their name.
The ELCA is not simply headed for hell in a handbasket – they are that hell.
