Well, I wouldn't say the Israelis are by any means without sin in their dealings with the Palestinians. But at least they don't strap bombs to children and sacrifice them. And while Israel has tried to work with the Palestinians, the Palestinians still want Israel wiped off the map. As a Lutheran Christian, I don't personally believe Israel will be restored to a new Temple and sacrifices being reinstated upon the return of Christ. But that doesn't give me the right to slander Christians who support Israel, the only democracy in the whole Middle East, people who desire to see the Jewish people come to faith in their Messiah, as do I.

The ELCA won't imagine there's no heaven. The ELCA likes heaven. It's a kind of liberal Democrat administration writ large and eternal. And everyone, don't you know, is going there. Thus saith the ELCA's favorite anthropomorphized "god," The Ineffable I'm OK, You're OK.

The Rocky Mountain Synod's newsletter also urged congregations to update their constitutions. Congregations don't have to update their constitutions, but whenever they do, they must adopt all the changes made by the ELCA to the model constitution (that is, all those which are required provisions, indicated by an asterisk). That includes the changes made in 2011 which make it harder to leave the ELCA. See THE LUTHERAN HEDGEHOG, Fall 2011, p. 3.

It sounds like you conservative Lutherans would be more "at home" in a Missouri Lutheran church. Why rant an rave about a denomination that does not accept or support your conservative views? Find a place that does.
