Lies To Support the ELCA's Agenda

The ELCA's Journal of Lutheran Ethics October 2015 issue was devoted to the topic of  "#BlackLivesMatter."

An article by Rozella Haydée White, the Program Director for Young Adult Ministry for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, perpetuates the falsehood that Michael Brown was murdered. She writes, “For many young people of color, the murder of Michael Brown[1] on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri tore the veil that covered the ugliest reality – lives of people of color, particularly young black people of color, are not seen as lives at all."  (see here)

The definition of murder is "The unlawful killing of another human being without
justification or excuse.
" (see here) Michael Brown was killed in self-defense by Officer Wilson. The justice system of the United States confirms this.

Saying that lives of people of color are "not seen as lives at all" is another outright lie.

Then the ELCA Program Director for Young Adult Ministry writes, “The church has also been complicit in the ongoing separation and oppression of people of color. From global mission that was undergirded by the concept of conversion…”

So helping people know the One True God is called "oppression?" Leading people to faith in Christ is what we are all called to do. The ELCA is turning this "calling" into an evil act.
