Kristen Kuempel is the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) bishop of the Northwest Intermountain Synod, formally called the Eastern Washington-Idaho Synod. Bishop Kuempel is a the type of leader that is gaining in prominence in the ELCA and is comparable to ELCA pastors Nadia Bolz-Weber and Lura Groen. (read about them here and here) She is extremely liberal, swears freely, advocates for all the ELCA favorite social causes and will spout her politics.
Just a few months ago the ELCA bishop Tweeted a picture of a vibrator to her followers:
Bishop Kuempel lists her preferred pronouns on her Twitter account along with her love of hard liquor. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America bishop's Twitter profile says "F*bombs welcome" and has a descriptive saying predominately displayed that says "Good sense of humor, dirty mind and beautiful heart. Deadly combination."
Below are some of many troubling Tweets by the ELCA bishop:
Kaitlin Pabo-Eulberg is a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. One of her favorite terms for God is El Shaddai, which she translates as "the Breasted One."
And the following tweet is from Journey of Faith church, an ELCA church in Windsor Mill, MD.
This is another example of ELCA churches and leaders referring to God as a female.
Social Justice Speech that Includes Calling Holy Spirit 'She' By VP Of ELCA Synod
"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.
