I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

Augustana College to allow same-sex ceremonies

8 hours ago  •  




ROCK ISLAND — Augustana College in Rock Island will now allow same-sex ceremonies on campus.
President Steven Bahls has sent out an email announcing his decision to allow same-gender ceremonies after a recommendation from campus chaplain Richard Priggie.
Priggie tells WNIJ Radio (http://bit.ly/TvIroB ) that several gay couples expressed interest in having a ceremony. He says that led him to request the president's approval.
The school is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. According to the email, the church left it up to Bahls to decide whether or not to open the campus to same-sex ceremonies.
Couples who wish to have a ceremony at the college's Ascension Chapel must be affiliated with Augustana. Illinois allows civil unions, and couples also can hold ``rites of marriage'' or ``blessings of unions'' by a pastor.

Paul left out a few damning details. If this is so bad, then why is the LCMS working so happily with ELCA? The abortion on demand health policy is far more heinous, but the LCMS convention that voted to elect Harris gave even more votes to working with ELCA.

My wife and I graduated from Augustana College, when that would not have been considered. They expelled a couple (male and female) for living together off campus, in the 1960s.

The chaplain at Augie was the pastor at Salem in Moline, where I was confirmed. I drive by but do not attend there. They had a blessing of the animals when we passed by for my 45th high school reunion.

As long as WELS, Missour, and the Little Sect look down on ELCA while working with ELCA, no one will take them seriously. That the clergy tolerate this situation--involving a lot of Thrivent money--means they never had a real Lutheran education. They are hypocritical Pietists, like Walther.
