Rev. Strommen “served as chairman of the Task Force for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s Studies on Sexuality, which made a recommendation on gay and lesbian clergy – a topic that has divided many among the church, nationally and locally.” (read here) These recommendations led to the ELCA Churchwide Council voting to ordain practicing homosexuals.
It seems the good pastor’s church is currently undergoing huge financial struggles (read here), in large part because of the Strommen led task force's wicked recommendations, no doubt.
I pray that Rev. Strommen would confess his sin and repent for his part in the ELCA thumbing it's nose at God and forcing evil on 4 million ELCA members.
