If you have the stomach for it, go to minute 30 in the below video and watch this pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America say that we should not necessarily assume Jesus was straight. Then the pastor uses the rest of his sermon to explain that Christians have misinterpreted the Bible for 2000 years and the verses which clearly forbid homosexuality, well, they really don't.
I have acquaintances who go to this congregation and I am grieved they are there. Central Lutheran Church of Elk River, Minnesota, left the ELCA years ago and joined a more biblical branch of Lutheranism, but there were liberals who wanted to stay in the ELCA and they formed the below church. The whole worship service below is dedicated to "Reconciling in Christ Sunday', a day in which many ELCA Lutherans celebrate the LGBT movement.
Sincerely in Christ,
Pastor Tom Brock
