Days after multiple ELCA Facebook posts about "Trans Day of Remembrance" the denomination is at it again, this time demonizing Thanksgiving as they observe something called "National Day of Mourning" instead.
One of the ELCA's post about the so-called "National Day of Mourning" said:
"Today, as family and friends gather across the nation, it is important for us to remember that for many people this is a day of mourning. As you give thanks for the blessings in your life, take some time to better understand the truths about this holiday and the Wampanoag people, learn about the Indigenous people on whose land you are gathered, and practice a land acknowledgement."

'National Day of Mourning' on Thanksgiving is on ELCA Synod's 'Notable events and observances'
The ELCA's Grand Canyon Synod has a page on their website titled "Prompts for Prayers of Intercession: November 21, 2021."
On this page, under "Other notable events and observances" was the listing "National Day of Mourning (November 25th)." See here or below.
"The National Day of Mourning began in 1970 as a form of protest to the 350th anniversary celebration of the arrival of the Pilgrims." (See here)
Also listed is "Transgender Day of Rememberance (November 20th)."
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
