In April, 2022 the Lower Susquehanna Synod of the ELCA held a middle school youth retreat. (See here)
Jonah Davis, a queer transgender individual (see here), spoke to the youth at the ELCA retreat as the keynote speaker.
Exposing the ELCA received the following report about this retreat:
"This event though the link may seem innocent enough. But the first activity during the camp, the kids were asked for their pronouns. All references to God the father were changed to God the Parent. And they had a transman, a woman pretending to be a man speak to the children. But only partially about his coming out story and how he was hurt by people he loved when he came out as trans."
"I was especially uncomfortable with the changing of scripture from John 15. Removing any mention of God the Father and replacing "father" with "parent." A pastor even mentioned the Holy Trinity as "the parent, the sibling, and the holy spirit." It is truly disturbing to see how far they will go to destroy the Lutheran Church from within with their new woke religion."
Indoctrinating the youth with beliefs that contradict what God tells us in the Bible is a ploy of Satan. Please do not send your children to anything involving the ELCA.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
