Well That’s a Change

Really?! I mean, really?!

That was my reaction to this article.

Apparently, the Lutheran church has decided that sex outside of marriage is really fine, after all. In a decision that dramatically if not completely reverses the church’s prior stance on sexuality, the convention ruled that sex is an appropriate expression in relationships that are “loving,” “life-giving,” “fulfilling,” “nurturing,” and “committed.” They removed the language which previously advises that relationships were “best served through binding commitment, legal protections, and the public accountability of marriage.”

Interestingly, during the time of the vote on Wednesday, a tornado struck the area, knocking the cross off the steeple of Central Lutheran Church, just across the street from the convention center.
