If you send your children to an ELCA college or seminary, do you know what the professors are teaching them? Before you send another check in support of these institutions you should find out what you are supporting.
It is also important to remember that our present and future pastors and leaders of our churches have studied and are studying at these institutions. What they learn while they are there will be what they bring to their congregations, for the length of their ministries.
Here is a list of ELCA professors that came out in support of the ELCA proposed and now approved decisions taken at the Churchwide Assembly in 2009.
Here is another statement and list of resent and former faculty of Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. (I believe seven signers are repeats from the list above)
