The ELCA continues to show that promoting their political positions is a major priority. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America just posted on their website and sent out an email asking readers to "Call Your Representative Today to Vote NO on the 'Cut, Cap and Balance Act.'" (see here)
Here is another example of the ELCA using their resources and displaying their true focus -- pushing a political agenda.
Remember that when you give to the ELCA, your money that is intended as a tithe and gift to God is really going to promote the ideology of the Democratic party, the ELCA's social justice causes and progressive policies. When you throw in the fact that the ELCA is seemingly indifferent to making disciples for Christ and bringing the lost to the salvation offered by Jesus (to all those who believe), I wonder if God finds your gifts and tithes acceptable.

As a former member of SOV in Boise, Iam sure glad that I pulled my membership. It is so sad what has happened to Martin Luther's Church. My wife and I are now in a solid Bible teaching and preaching church. It took me a long time to realize just how liberal the ELCA really is. Yours in Christ, Tom Boals

I quit paying my ELCA benevolence about a year ago. Now I am quitting the church completely. No more supporting liberal political causes for me!

Money is the mother's milk of church bureaucracies, as well as politics. As long as they money keeps coming in, they won't pay any attention to the people in the pews.
