As mentioned above, Exposing the ELCA has told you about Dan Savage previously and his unholy alliance with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and specifically Presiding Bishop Mark Hanson. This spring we learned about a video Presiding Bishop Mark Hanson made for Mr. Savage’s "It Gets Better'" project. In my blog (read here), I wrote, “Mr. Savage must have liked Bishop Hanson’s video because he chose to include Bishop Hanson’s transcript from the video in a 'It Gets Better' book Mr. Savage was editing. Not only that, but Bishop Hanson must have been proud of this because the ELCA sent out a news release about him being in the book. (see here) And as of today the ELCA is promoting Dan Savage’s work on the ELCA website. (see here)” They continue to do this today.
Mr. Savage is a public figure who has the ear of millions of people, and he continually uses his voice to spew hatred toward Christians: mocking them, Scripture and God. Why would the ELCA be allied with this person? I believe it is because the ELCA also does not like Bible-believing Christians. The ELCA and Dan Savage share the same thoughts, and the ELCA likes his message.
Here are some additional ELCA ties to Dan Savage -
