ELCA Bishop Supports Polygamy
A few days ago a show by Bancroft TV was posted on Youtube titled "Being Polygamous And Christian Is Not A Sin | LOVE DON’T JUDGE."
The show spotlights two women and a man who are a "throuple" - or having a sexual relationship between three people.
Appearing on the show is Leila Ortiz, who was elected this summer as bishop of the ELCA Metropolitan Washington, D.C., Synod. (Rev. Ortiz was previously Assistant to the Bishop in the same ELCA synod.) Ortiz is interviewed, after we are told by the narrator that the trouple, “Having been asked to leave their Pentecostal church... went in search of a church that would accept their relationship."
ELCA Bishop elect Leila Ortiz then recounted their meeting and her learning about their polygamous relationship:
“There’s still many people who would be scandalized and would even be scandalized by my acceptance of them. And that’s okay, that’s okay. I’m very grounded in my faith.”
This is an ELCA bishop proclaiming support for polygamous relationships. Polygamy is against God's will as He clearly outlined in Scripture. (See here) The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has become so opposed to the Truth of God's Word that threesomes are fine. This is where the ELCA is headed and it will continue to get worse.
The following post is from ELCA pastor Lura N. Groen:

Would someone please define love according to the ELCA??

Sure, love in the ELCA is spelled m o n e y. Preferably the congregants money.

Love in the elca is also spelled l u s t. That pretty much covers everything they've promoted for the last decade.

Makes me feel like throwing up! Sadder is the fact that many Christians cannot speak up for God's version of love, which is why I wrote "When Love Becomes Heresy" [If you would care to take a look and consider a review, would be glad to send the pdf.] https://textsincontext.wordpress.com/

If God is so against polygamy, how do you explain Abraham/Sarai/Hagar? Or Jacob and his plural wives? Or Solomon and his palace full of wives and concubines? Or do you all just entirely skip the Old Testament?
