The Northern Texas-Northern Louisiana Synod of the ELCA has met for its yearly assembly. They invited Jason and DeMarco, a singing duo who are also a homosexual couple, to sing to their teenagers. From the synod's website:
"(Jason and Demarco) have also been a part of the Human Rights Campaign star-studded benefit two-pack CD album celebrating marriage equality, Love Rocks, alongside artists such as Christina Aguilera, Pink, and The Dixie Chicks. Jason and deMarco will be performing a Friday night concert at the Mission Assembly for area Youth Groups and all Assembly attendees."

When the ELCA decided to endorse homosexual behavior in 2009, there was talk of respecting everyone's "bound conscience" and honoring a diversity of viewpoints. So--next year for balance--how about the Northern Texas-Northern Louisiana Synod inviting someone from the Restored Hope Network to give a conservative, Biblical view on homosexuality? Sadly, highly doubtful that will ever happen. That the ELCA is targeting youth with their pro-homosexual message is especially tragic (Matthew 18:6).
I must say it again, time to leave the ELCA and join a more Biblical denomination.
P.S. If you know someone who struggles with homosexuality and needs help, go to restoredhopenetwork.org and hit the "find help" map.
