Majority Rule

The ELCA will be voting again on sexuality matters at its 2009 “Churchwide Assembly.” Paull Spring reports that the ELCA Church Council has now voted that votes on the subject will require only a simple majority, not the 2/3rds that was required in previous votes. What this means is that the slow and steady chipping away of traditional marriage that began with the ca. 1990  sexuality study will probably reach its conclusion this summer. The effort to erode the ELCA’s teaching and practice has been carried on by gay activists and ideologically driven bureaucrats, who have taken advantage of “discussion” guides and parliamentary procedure to steer the church. Spring, a former bishop in Pennsylvania, is outraged.

One thought on “Majority Rule

  1. Sad, isn’t it? I guess that sort of thing is what can happen when you put God’s law up to a majority vote.

    By the way, I really enjoy reading your blog. Keep up the good work.

    I’ve just started a new blog that will be highlighting the dangerous advances of the secular progressive movement (pro-gay “rights”, pro-abortion, anti-religious freedoms, etc). Unfortunately, most Christians still don’t know what’s going on out there and the mainstream media certainly isn’t covering it.

    We’re looking to build a solid group of social conservatives who’ll frequent our site regularly and contribute to some good discussions. I hope you’ll check us out!

    If you’ll add us to your blogroll we’ll gladly add you to ours. Just drop us a comment over at our blog so that we’ll know to add you. Our blog is called Religion and Morality.
