It has been reported from multiple ELCA pastors (liberal and conservative) that there has been a discussion concerning polyamorous relationships on an ELCA Facebook group. The first person to report about this Facebook discussion did so in the ELCA Clergy, Uncensored FB page (link to this closed group here) and said:
This is what the referenced original polyamorous post said:
"I'm gonna throw this out there... And no, this isn't an April Fools joke...
Do you think there'll be a time when the ELCA supports polyamorous relationships? Not that I have one or will ever have one... Some people do, and honestly, I think it's great. People make it work.
I'm just asking because it's a common refrain when talking about same-sex relationships with people who oppose it, that they say we should accept polygamy as well... Which... Again... I'm okay with..."
Polyamorous defined as "more than two people in a mutually defined sexual relationship."
According to a couple ELCA pastors many in the group have been supportive of polyamorus relationships and some have not.
You should ask yourself what kind of Christ following denomination has pastors arguing for two, three, four, five + person marriages and sexual relationships? What kind of denomination graduates and ordains people who so blatantly reject the Word of God believing sinful behavior is good?
Pastors are suppose to be beacons of light for Christ. Instead many are a leading people down the highway to hell.
Below is a picture of the ELCA group where the discussion took place. Note that it is comprised of 20 to 30 something year old ELCA rostered leaders and seminarians.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
