Another Failing ELCA Seminary - Really Two Failing Schools
Three Women Who Have Grown in Office

Louise Johnson is head of the failing Wartburg Seminary.
Her qualifications are minimal, which suggests
a role as the Judas goat leading everyone to the slaughter house.

Notice the patented lop-sided Mark Jeske smile,
suggesting ambivalence.
I forgot to mention Wartburg Seminary, the second one started by Loehe. Walther asked for Ft. Wayne to be turned over to him  (for free) by Loehe - and to keep sending money.

Wartburg was so broke a few years ago that tenured professors were fired. Normally that is done through merger!

My friend from Yale, Stanley Olson, was the previous president of Wartburg, supposedly a more conservative flavor of ELCA. Stan's wife bragged in the Yale Divinity magazine that their daughter married a woman. Of course, Ralph Bohlmann had the same bragging rights, but those facts had to be discovered on their own. Ralph's daughter became a UCC minister and married a woman.

Olson, when he worked for Mark Hanson, worked on the way to bring back in those lesbian and homosexual pastors suspended from ELCA. After the 2009 vote, ELCA cratered so fast that Stan's position was eliminated altogether.

So Wartburg is the most conservative seminary in ELCA? That is like asking,"Which beating was your favorite one?"



Like Louise, above, there is no mention of a husband, or a spouse
for Robin Steinke, now presiding at Luther Seminary.
I reviewed her installation service, which was incredibly
empty, a definitive response to starting a new trend at Luther.

All the feminist clergy grow in office.
And I mean really grow.
The first ELCiC female bishop
really grew in office.
She graduated from Jay Webber's favorite UOJ seminary -
not ILT - Waterloo Lutheran Seminary.
