    How can the Evangelical Lutherans suddenly have "succumbed" to heresy when heresy and rebellion are at the very foundation of Lutheranism?

    Yes the Church had a very small amount of sick priests that practiced a sin. But at least the Catholic Church still considers it a sin. The other Churches now claim that weird sexual perversions are part of their Church teaching. Every Church has abuse in it. Thats a fact. Also the Catholic church has a "long history" of providing more charity and education and hope than any other instution on Earth. We do more good in the world in a single day then what the Luthern Church does in a month. Since we are so good at loving and giving back, then we can start trying to get the other churches to follow suit. Thats why we correct others. We cant sit by why the Lutherns destroy Bible truths. So before you start casting stones look at the whole picture

    I thought the ordination of women was heresy? Honestly, if we all spent a little more time focusing on the aspects of the Gopsel we AGREE on and quit pointing fingers at brothers and sisters in Christ and crying "heresy" about the things we don't then maybe that "kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven" would be a little closer to coming.

    I think there is probably going to be some good to come out of this - probably will lead to a lot of Lutherans coming back to the Catholic Church. It has happened with the Episcopalians and will happen again. People can't contend with the cognitive dissonance that results from this ridiculously bad decision. People will go one of two ways: change their "Christian" worldview to fit the heresy OR will be forced to conclude "that has never been the teaching of the Church and is completely against scripture" and leave. It is amazing how some people contend the Catholic church is out of touch when it is these heretical denominations that are most quickly losing members. This is unfortunately a logical consequence of Luther breaking with the magesterium of the Church.

    When the Roman church gets out of people's bedrooms, doctors' offices, and when they consider women the equals of men in the ministry, and when they start thinking that they are the only path to eternal life, then I will take what they have to say seriously. This is a church with a long history of forced celibate priests abusing young boys. Perhaps they should be more interested in consideration of Christian love than finding what they consider error in others.

    How can ELCA have succumbed to heresy by this act? ELCA and every other Protestant group is by definition heretical. The title and content of this article makes it seam that Protestants may or may not be in heresy when in fact all are. Please correct this in order to avoid the potential for confusion.
