What kind of pastor is the ELCA producing? And what kind of person is seeking ordination in the ELCA? Good questions all ELCA churches should ask.
A person's social media account will often tell a lot about a person. Jacob Krueger is a student at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Wartburg Theological Seminary who is active on social media. Here is some of what he is saying on Twitter.
The following is a response by ELCA pastor John Sipf of Peoria, Illinois, to my tweet replying to another ELCA pastor. We were discussing this blog about an ELCA pastor giving the camera the finger and his rant against America.
ELCA pastor John Sipf regularly tweets and retweets about white people, racism, politics, Donald Trump, refugees and illegal immigrants, transgenders, abortion, etc. Below are a few examples of his activity on Twitter.
ELCA Pastor Joelle Colville-Hanson is the Director for Evangelical Mission for the Northeastern Iowa Synod. Her social media posts contain lots of anger and politics. Below she calls a U.S. Congressman Steve King a "old white racist."
It seems Rev. Colville-Hanson thinks the United States is pretty racist and sexist too. (See here and below.)

ELCA New England Synod Bishop, Jim Hazelwood retweeted the below tweet. It seems to be saying that conservative evangelicals are racists. I wonder what he thinks about conservatives who are still members in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America?
BTW, the Jewish people have a variety of skin tones. God's Word does not tell us the color of Jesus' skin.
See the bishop's Twitter page here. Go to his retweet made Sept. 20, 2018.
Below are more disturbing and racist tweets by ELCA pastor Tuhnia Verma Rasche, who the ELCA chose to speak to 31,000 youth at the 2018 ELCA Youth Gathering this summer. (Read more about her here and here)
