    I think that it is interesting that 4 of the 6 are from Midwestern states.

    That’s wonderful

  4. Funny how all 6 people are Republicans?. I would like to see how many ELCA members of Congress are democats. Maybe a pattern.

      I am ashamed that these six Republicans are LCMS Lutherans, who are supporting Donald Trump in taking away Constitutional rights from people and breaking the law. It was my understanding that we, as Christians, are called to help the poor, the needy, and the oppressed. Instead, these Lutherans support a president who is doing the direct opposite of what Jesus would want us to do. Would Jesus want us to ban refugees who are fleeing war? Would Jesus want us to only allow people into the U.S. from countries where Trump has business dealings? Would Jesus only care about Trump’s millionaire/billionaire cronies making even more money at the expense of the poor and middle class? Would Jesus be happy with all of the racist and sexist comments being bantered around? I don’t think Jesus would like what’s going on in the U.S. right now, and I also don’t think he would like what he hears and sees going on in some churches right now. What’s going on in our country is very sad and scary. These Lutheran men are playing a role in that.
