Jim Hazelwood is the bishop of the ELCA's New England Synod. He uses his Twitter account mostly to spew his politics and anger at President Trump. The following is just a small sample of his tweets over the last few months.
We all know the ELCA seminaries are filled with liberal, Bible-rejecting seminarians waiting to become ELCA pastors. But Rev. Dan G Olson reminds us that liberal and partisan pastors have been serving the ELCA for many years. Look at what he has been posting on his Facebook page this year. See his view of people who want to defund Planned Parenthood and believe marriage is between one man and one woman. Also notice the view of those who are supporters of President Trump in the second post.
Bishop Michael Rinehart of the ELCA's Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod often spouts his political and social justice opinions online. Yesterday he wrote about the migrant caravan heading to the United States saying, "There are no terrorists in the caravan,.." Of course he has no way to know this.
The bishop continues, "...though the white nationalist anti-immigration folks want you to think so."
This is the state of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Synod Tweets "all: our silence equals complicity" in speaking about "separating parents from their children"
A political post by the DE-MD Synod does not leave any room for other opinions or understanding.
