If you listen to the ELCA and their Middle East terrorist-sympathizing friends, you would think Israel is evil and the cause of all problems there. Not so; listen to this Arab woman's support of the Jewish State. (see information on the ELCA and Israel here)
We hear the ELCA rant and rave about Palestinian hardships because of Israeli checkpoints. (see "checkpoint" search on ELCA.org here)
It is fabricated. A lie. Not a surprise coming from a denomination which holds Israel as the enemy, focuses on them (rather than on atrocity-committing countries), and seeks to harm them financially and politically, while pushing policies that will endanger their survival. See the truth in this video. (caution: some adult language)
The Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Mark Hanson, released a statement saying that he "appreciated" President Obama's Israel - Palestinian speech on May 19 and that it "resonates with ELCA Mideast principles." (see here)
Bishop Hanson went on to say "(b)uilding on the president’s statement, we also continue to support a negotiated, final status agreement which achieves a 'shared Jerusalem' serving as a capital to both Palestine and Israel, with access to and full rights in the city for Jews, Christians and Muslims. . . The occupation must end, and Israel must withdraw its civilian population and military presence from all territory it has occupied since 1967."

And "Palestinians" are filled with joy with this news?
These are the people that the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) have been siding with by demanding that Israel give it's land and half of Jerusalem to. (see more here)
'See!' he said to all the people. 'This stone will be a witness against us. It has heard all the words the LORD has said to us. It will be a witness against you if you are untrue to your God.'
