Wolf of Wall Street, Thrivent, and the Wolves of the Synodical Conference - And ELCA

Jordan Belfort is the drug-addicted, adulterous, promiscuous financial swindler
chosen as a featured speaker at the Thrivent Convention.
He is the actual Wolf of Wall Street.

Here is Belfort speaking to Thrivent executives and salesmen.
Note the cross plus the dollar sign in the upper right.

The wolves of the Synodical Conference are posing with a

Thrivent owns the Synodical Conference and ELCA,
helping them work together.
Jeske earns at least $170,000 a year (2012) by being on the Thrivent board,
funding Planned Parenthood and other evil agencies of their Father Below.

DEARBORN, Mich. (RNS) For the first time in its long history, Thrivent Financial is not just for Lutherans. The 111-year-old financial services firm began taking applications this month from all Christians.
“We feel like we’re being called to serve more people,” said Dick Moeller, chairman of the board.
The change from “Thrivent Financial for Lutherans” to just “Thrivent Financial” was not a simple response to declining membership in the Lutheran church, Moeller said, although that factor was discussed during the lengthy transition talks.
It’s more about having a long-term strategy to share the company’s Christian business principles with more people, he said.
“It will open many, many new doors for us in terms of our ability to expand and help our members and communities,” he said.
