A Facebook post from Des Moines' Lutheran Church of Hope, the largest ELCA church in the country, states:
"While we commemorate Juneteenth today, the work is not yet done. We continue to desire and follow the heartbeat of Christ for racial reconciliation, equality and equity." (see below and here)
Notice the word "equity."
The National Association of Colleges and Employers describes equity this way:
"...equity means recognizing that we do not all start from the same place and must acknowledge and make adjustments to imbalances." (see here)
An OP in the Wall Street Journal states:
"Equality means equal treatment, unbiased competition and impartially judged outcomes. Equity means equal outcomes, achieved if necessary by unequal treatment, biased competition and preferential judging." (see here)
Lutheran Church of Hope's Facebook post included an image of a black fist raised in the air.
Professor Jordan Peterson writes about equity saying,
"We know the left can go too far...We don’t know exactly when and where the 'going too far' begins. But I’m willing to stake my claim on the equity doctrine. In a word, it’s inexcusable, both morally and practically, and should be regarded, in my estimation, as an ideological position that should be roundly rejected by anyone who wishes to be taken seriously in any reasonable political discussion."

We know probably few in the Midwest would join some of these completely looney ELCA churches that have been profiled on this site. Drag queens, pastors in topless protests, complete lunacy. But it is good to point out these more subtle heresies as well. Good job. Churches of this size and influence need to re-examine what they believe in and have the courage to follow Christ and dump their membership in the ELCA immediately.
