The Borg

The Borg were a persistent enemy on a Star Trek series. They had to assimilate others in order to be. GLBT is the Borg.

They have web sites. Have fun and visit them. Visit them often and you will learn more about learning about the need for everyone to practice spiritual warfare!

God expects humanity to multiply. Seems there is more than one way to do that! Recruit, take over, what else?

Did you in the ELCA know you were part of a liberal organization? The Borg keep track on this stuff (they pick off the weak first, just like predators in the wild!):

"With a membership of about 5 million, the ELCA is perhaps the fifth largest Christian denomination in the United States. If one were to sort the approximately 1,000 Christian denominations in the U.S. along a conservative-liberal continuum, the ELCA would probably be regarded among the most liberal 10% of all denominations."

Still think there is not a plan by outsiders to take over the ELCA?

The Borg really like stuff like this:

"Anita Hill was ordained as a pastor in the ELCA during 2001 by four bishops: one active and three retired. She is a lesbian who lives in a committed relationship with another woman. (She is unrelated to the Anita Hill who accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.) Bishop Mark S. Hanson of St. Paul, MN, censured -- but did not expel -- Hill's congregation. Ironically, Bishop Hanson was elected on 2001-AUG-11 to the ELCA's highest office, that of presiding bishop."

"2004-JUL-25: Ordination of openly gay pastor in Twin Cities: Bethany Lutheran Church in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area ordained Jay Weisner. He is the third openly gay pastor in the Twin City area. Afterwards "...the audience ripped into an unbridled display of clamorous applause, joyous hollering, foot-stomping and fist-pumping." Dora Lofstrom, a church member of 20 years standing, said: "I kind of feel like we're paving the way for the Lutheran Church. I think the tide is with us. I think little by little the church will come." Retired Luther Seminary Prof. Loren Halvorson said the ordination shows that the ELCA is becoming more accepting of gays and lesbians. He said: "I believe we've already reached a critical-mass point."

Since the ELCA does not allow the ordination of gays or lesbians unless they commit to celibacy, Bishop Craig Johnson of the ELCA Minneapolis Synod did not attend the ceremony. He can impose sanctions against the congregation, ranging from a reprimand to severing the congregation from the denomination, and firing the pastor."

They are the Borg!
