Here is an excerpt from the March 2015 edition:
"(Homosexual man) Lenox found a committed partner in Nathan Merrells. After about five years together, both men were ready to start a family. “Why can’t we be like everyone else?” Lenox wondered.
Around that time Lenox and Merrells met a lesbian couple who had adopted a son through the Lutheran agency. They urged Lenox to apply as a single parent, assuring him that being gay need not rule him out....(Social worker Sandy) Deutsch gives credit to Bill Brittain, then head of the Lutheran organization, for his compassionate, forward-thinking leadership. Other agencies wouldn’t have accepted Lenox as an adoptive parent, she said, but Brittain valued a child’s well-being above traditional notions of what an ideal family looked like." (see here)
My comment: Tragic that a Lutheran agency will put an orphan into the hands of two homosexuals rather than providing a mother and a father. Also tragic that the ELCA's official magazine writes a glowing article about it.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
