Sexuality, Church Splits, & Standing on Scripture

“I don’t think it’s the issue of whether someone is going to have a gay pastor forced upon their church, as much a question of what a straight pastor is going to be teaching.  What’s God’s intention for marriage, for sexuality? The concern is the ELCA is trading in its teaching and losing its grounding in scripture and no longer having a moral center.”
-Rev. David Baer, pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Whitewood, S.D. on starting a new Lutheran denomination after the ELCA voted to allow non-celibate gay and lesbian pastors. (New Lutheran Group Likely to Rise from Gay Discord; Associated Press; August 25, 2010)
