Last week the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America held it's Churchwide Assembly. The assembly brought ELCA leadership from across the nation together.
A social media post that includes a picture shows one unofficial gathering that took place (see below) and it includes a comment saying "@ELCA how many rostered ministers you think we can get in a gay bar? #elcacwa #cwa2022".
The picture posted below shows ELCA Synod bishop Kevin Strickland, ELCA seminary president (United Lutheran Seminary) R. Guy Erwin, along with apparently many other ELCA ministers.
The person in the front row with red hair and in blue is unknown.
(or see here)
The person who wrote the social media post was apparently under 18 years old in April of 2021 according to an ELCA biological information for nominees form this person filled out. (The ELCA form is posted on an ELCA run website but I am not posting a link because it contains personal information).
The ELCA official Twitter account shows its approval by retweeting the post/picture and saying "Having an awesome time in #Columbus for #ELCAcwa!" (See below)

"Rostered ministers"? No, rostered hirelings.

Flaunting their sin. Disgusting.

I see that on Thursday afternoon, Aug. 11, 2022, plenary session #6 voted overwhelmingly to reconsider the inclusion of a "bound conscience" position which runs counter to that of the pro-LBGTQ+ and it damns people to hell!
