Evangelical Lutheran Church in America divided over homosexuality decision

    All Headline News: “The largest synod in the Lutheran Church has done an about face with its policies pertaining to homosexuals, upsetting members of Maumee St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church who are now threatening to separate themselves from the Evangelical Lutheran church in America. Previously, the ELCA allowed gays to be ministers but said they had to refrain from having sex. But now, ministers no longer have to abstain from sex as long as they are in a lifelong, committed relationship.”

Daniel Henninger: “ObamaJobs: Uncle Sam’s Hiring Hall”

    Daniel Heninger writes at the Wall Street Journal: “Every serious person should welcome the president’s proposals to lift the dormant economy and reduce unemployment. Not because every serious person would agree with them but because they are a clear test of how a left-wing government would run the American economy. If this works, hats off to them and we become France. If not, Americans may finally dump left-wing economics into the ash heap of history, starting next November and then in the next presidential election, which can’t come soon enough.”

The Privatization of the First Amendment: The Nomination of Chai Feldblum

    Mario Diaz writes at Townhall: “No matter what your political party, no matter your religion or if you have none at all, we should all be concerned about loosing our most cherished liberties. It is those liberties that lie at the foundation of everything we believe as a nation. That is what is at stake with the nomination of Chai Feldblum to the EEOC. And every senator should approach it with that type of urgency. But it is up to us to make sure senators know we are watching and that we will remember how much they value our religious freedoms.”
