Evangelical Lutheran Church in America becomes nation's first 'sanctuary denomination'
Aug 16, 2019


MINNEAPOLIS -- The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has become the first North American denomination to declare itself a sanctuary church, committed to supporting and sheltering migrants entering the country.

The ELCA announced its decision last week at an annual assembly in Milwaukee, where leaders also participated in a march and prayer vigil at the Milwaukee Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office.

<<....>>

"We're not asking people to break the law," he said.

Minnesota is home to the largest ELCA community in the nation, estimated at 670,000 members. Nationally, the ELCA has about 3.3 million members and 9,000 congregations.

Leftists have infiltrated many church denominational hierarchichies. Sort of like the United Methodist Church, they allow women pastors and many of the Bishops and churches support homosexuality. So now that the Left is anti-Trump and open borders, these Leftist churches (which aren't really churches at all) naturally will try to help hide illegals in the country.

And up steps the JUDGE of who and what is Christianity, it must be nice to think yours are the only Christians in the world that are real Christians. To the rest of us it sounds like self righteous hypocrisy and is gaggingly disgusting.

Yeah.

The church is anti-Trump so they can't be real Christians.

Wow.

Luthern church is also at the forefront of importing refugees and poverty to America.

I have less problem with this. They were legal immigrants getting help from a church. Not this Trump protester church that tries to harbor illegals to fight Trump.

Now if the church is doing their job. The forefront of their mission is spreading the Gospel, not social justice. If you read a church's mission statement and their mission says "inclusion, lgbtq, justice" a red flag should go up.
