Gay clergy split ELCA

| Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

The Living story “Leading by example” (Jan. 8 and TribLIVE.com) about Bishop Kurt Kusserow, the leader of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, was interesting but misleading regarding why churches have been leaving the ELCA.

There was a reference made to differences about gender. Actually, gay people were always welcome to commune and become members. The controversy was created in 2009 when the national conference voted to accept practicing gay clergy.
