Lies To Support the ELCA's Agenda
The ELCA's Journal of Lutheran Ethics October 2015 issue was devoted to the topic of "#BlackLivesMatter."
An article by Rozella Haydée White, the Program Director for Young Adult Ministry for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, perpetuates the falsehood that Michael Brown was murdered. She writes, “For many young people of color, the murder of Michael Brown on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri tore the veil that covered the ugliest reality – lives of people of color, particularly young black people of color, are not seen as lives at all." (see here)
The definition of murder is "The unlawful killing of another human being without
justification or excuse." (see here) Michael Brown was killed in self-defense by Officer Wilson. The justice system of the United States confirms this.
Saying that lives of people of color are "not seen as lives at all" is another outright lie.
Then the ELCA Program Director for Young Adult Ministry writes, “The church has also been complicit in the ongoing separation and oppression of people of color. From global mission that was undergirded by the concept of conversion…”
So helping people know the One True God is called "oppression?" Leading people to faith in Christ is what we are all called to do. The ELCA is turning this "calling" into an evil act.
Another article in the October issue of Journal of Lutheran Ethics was written by Rev. Wolfgang D. Herz-Lane, bishop of the Maryland-Delaware Synod of the ELCA. He seems to be making a similar claim to the first article, that Ferguson, Missouri Police Officer Wilson committed a crime in the shooting of Michael Brown when he writes, "Unlike other cities such as Ferguson, New York, and Cleveland where law enforcement officers were not held accountable in the deaths of unarmed civilians, the family of Freddie Gray will get its day in court as six police officers have been charged in the case."

Speaking of murder, Rozella and ELCA leaders/members, isn't it way past time to confess your own denominational murders? When are you going to repent of and stop funding the abortions of God's preborn creations? "Real churches don't kill babies."

Her action item #1 is to seek knowledge and information. Yet she ignores the eyewitness testimony that Michael Brown (1) had just committed a strong arm robbery (caught on video); (2) punched the officer in the face hard enough the officer feared blacking out (Brown weighed about 300 lbs); (3) tried to take the officers gun; (4) fled; (5) then turned and charged the officer, head down and continued charging despite being hit by the officer's bullets in his arms and torso; and (6) the officer was justifiably in fear of his life.
