I may no longer be ELCA (I hopped synods to the LCMS a couple years ago), but I still keep occasional tabs on what goes on over there. So I was dismayed to see this headline in the Star Tribune, not for its content necessarily, but for its tone:
EARLY VICTORY FOR GAY CLERGY AT ELCA ASSEMBLY
Note to Strib: the process of attempting to discern the Lord's will is not some sort of civil rights competition. The only victory lies in aligning church doctrine and policy with God's will. Lay off.
