In my opinion, it is a grievous sin to support the abortion factory of Planned Parenthood. Today we highlight Rev. Dr. Paul T. Jersild, an ELCA Professor of Theology and Ethics, Emeritus at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary and former dean at the ELCA’s Wartburg Theological Seminary, Dubuque, Iowa. Obviously a man who has trained up and instructed many ELCA pastors and leaders.
Rev. Dr. Paul T. Jersild is listed as being on the Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia’s board of directors for 2010. (see here)
Rev. Jersild is listed as a financial donor in the Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia 2010 Yearbook (see here)
Rev. Jersild wrote an article entitled, “Response to the accusation that Planned Parenthood is a racist organization” which is listed as a resource on the Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Virginia website. (see here)
One more detail about Rev. Jersild, he was one of the early proponents of homosexuality in the ELCA saying, “we need to move away from the kind of rational, universal thinking about human sexuality that coerces everyone into the same heterosexual mold . . .” (see here)
