Courtney Smith is "a graduate student at United Lutheran Seminary (formerly Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia and Gettysburg), studying for my Masters of Divinity...(and is) on the ordination track in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) to become a pastor." (See here)
Here is some of what she has been saying on Twitter:
Fact check: Jerusalem is the Capitol of Israel.
Future ELCA pastor Courtney Smith says "America is not first in my heart and it never will be. It is merely the country I live in."
Two tweets aimed at "straight white males."
Now for some of her politics:
Luther College Ministries, run by ELCA pastors Mike Blair and Anne Edison-Albright, took part in the Decorah, Iowa Pride Parade this month. As you can see below, Luther College Ministries passionately posted on Facebook about their involvement in the Gay Pride Parade and LGBT support.
Encouraging homosexuality is not a "loving" and Godly action. True love is helping people to turn away from sinful behaviors and grow in their relationship with God. It is sad to see this ELCA ministry turn from Biblical Truth and harm students who need to know God's love and desire for them.
Luther is a college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).
"The Holy Spirit knows what she is doing when she raises up leaders." (3:10 minute mark)
"But the Holy Spirit, well she will not be denied." (11:35 minute mark)
These are statements of the ELCA's Florida-Bahamas Synod Vice President Cheryl Stuart, given at the Florida-Bahamas Synod Assembly. (See below)
If you listen to the synod vice president's message you will hear it is mostly comprised of social justice rhetoric, including those favorable to transgenders, illegal immigrants and homosexuality.
Vice President Stuart even called the 2009 ELCA vote "to say 'Yes' to LGBTQ clergy and partner relationships staying in the pulpit," "prophetic."
This is the state of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

In this Tweet by Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (Ohio RCRC) we learn that retired Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) pastor Al Debelak is a clinic escort for Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio. A clinic escort is someone who walks with people going into a Planned Parenthood clinic.
We also learn that retired ELCA Rev. Debelak is a board member of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio. NARAL stands for National Abortion Rights Action League.
See what newly elected ELCA bishop of the Metro D.C. Synod, Leila M. Ortiz, posted on her social media two months ago.
ELCA pastor Clint Schnekloth said this on social media:
