Lutheran Pastor Brad Schmeling and His Partner to Be Reinstated


The Reverend Bradley Schmeling and his partner Revernd Darin Easler will be reinstated by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the AP reports:

"A gay Atlanta pastor and his partner who have been at the center of a battle over the treatment of gay clergy by the nation's largest Lutheran denomination are being reinstated to the denomination's clergy roster, church officials announced Tuesday.

The Rev. Bradley Schmeling and his partner, the Rev. Darin Easler, have been approved for reinstatement, the Chicago-based Evangelical Lutheran Church in America said in a news release. The approval came roughly eight months after the denomination voted to allow gays and lesbians in committed relationships to serve as clergy, and just weeks after the ELCA's church council officially revised the church's policy on gay ministers."

    And we are supposed to think this is a good thing? Happy with the crumbs we are offered?

    So as long as we queers are “in a committed relationship” we can serve as clergy?

    Do the straights have the same restriction?

    Fuck NO!

    So you can’t serve until you find that special someone. Too bad for you if you don’t happen to be so lucky. Or if you break up or get divorced. Or if your husband/wife dies.

    If you are clergy and gay and your spouse dies do you loose your job? Or perhaps you are required to find another “special someone” immediately after the funeral so you can keep your church.

    Why anyone would want to be a member of an organization that treats them like shit is beyond me. Let’s not pretend that this is in any way a good thing.

    I did give warning, FASC Concepts is not about Gay Rights and no one listened and now they have posted for gay support. Let me show you where this gay thing first came from. If this issue persist my next post at blogs will cover every part of the net until I unite all as one and I will show the people of the United States how twisted a world that this gay thing came from.
    Why you ask ? It is because this issue is to be thought in school to children……
    How about a true story, of what I have seen as a child of what has took place in the United States since the murder and cover up of John F. Kennedy.
    It should be known I do not Gay Bash or Bible Thump, I will share facts ….
    I intend to show a link between homosexuality and pedophilia. Then a area of Laws against the foundation of America, drugs and things ancient in origin, all the way to this war against this Drug Empire that happened on 9/11/2001. I will bring all of this to life with links and you will see a world without windows.
    The first Laws against God, of no moment of silence at school. The freedom of choice was taken away just to say thank you God for another day. And then No Pledge Of Elegance to the Flag, But to my understanding this was reversed.
    Now for me to show a direct link to homosexuality and pedophilia that goes back 2000 years, so now please stay with me on the following, because it is a true story.
    It was a bright and beautiful day in Tennessee, my little sister of 4 years old, my brother of around 6 years old and I was around 8 years old. A man of the Church came over to talk to us about the stories of God and Jesus he showed us a story book of Jesus and His travels, as Jesus came to a small town and the children and people came to see Him. As the children watched Jesus removed His cloths and He was half man and woman. He had the body of a female with a mans sex for the bottom half. And this Preacher stated that children should know God and to be with Him. Just as the man turned the page and the homosexual act between men and women in front of the children, then all of a sudden my Mom came out side and raised total hell and the man took off and Mom had him arrested, before he got away.
    A vacuum has been created by Laws against God and replaced with the thought that being Gay, or Gay Rights hold more moral value as law to be, than the concept of , what if there really is a God ?
    As stated before at other blogs, Man is not in the position to build Laws against God over prayer. According to Law that goes back before the birth of Christ and other Profits, it is forbidden to create such Laws. And with in the United States it is becoming unexceptionable and a insult to the integrity of what use to be Known as God and Country.
    To put it simple, the moral value of God and Country has been replaced with the perversion of a child s mind.
    So I am sorry, there is no such thing as gay rights. And for most of our friends that are gay they are in agreement with this statement and I have been ask to also state that because of drug use this has become a factor in homosexual acts.
    The following is also linked to drugs and Drug Empires that date back around 1000 years BC and Pedophilia and Homosexuals World and things not spoken of because of a intent for it to disappear from the knowledge of Mankind. A true story, also documented in history.
    That because of malevolent acts that is also ancient and is also documented history before Christ, the sacrilege committed against God in order to gain great wealth and to enslave nations through drugs, to build children into that they wish…. All of this is true and a fact of documentation of history.
    This sacrilege spoken of is in fact the sacrifice of life to spiritual evil. Even now documentation in Mexico and the United States , 1979 to 2000 reports filed and some cover ups now proved to be true.
    I read these things and I see where the Arabic Drug Empire is involved with the Mexican Drug Lords. What lost of understanding is that according to the faith of Ben Laden it is forbidden by God to walk among the infidels. That all infidels are to be vanquished from this world in order that the chosen ones will repopulate the world.
    It is a well known fact that the Arabic Drug Empire seek biological war tactics and it has been heard that a chemical balance is sought of how to implement Biological with Drugs, in order for it to be undetectable.
    The betraying of the Mexican Drug Lords by The Arabic Drug Empire will bring death to Mexico and the United States.
    Why should the Mexican Drug Empire take faith in my words, first If you and I stood before God I say to you that this is true it is the words of the streets that hold credit, and nothing is offered to them, The Mexican Drug Lords, dealing drugs is illegal. It is time to step away sit back and see what this drug dealing is doing and see those who have begun to lose their soul to this money making drug and the true and ancient evil bound to it.
    You do not have to take faith in my words for now, let your soul speak to you.
    Some people seek proof of God, will, let me show you the essence of evil first and ah, will enjoy the ride, because it is said by thousands of people who do drugs that some how a door was opened to them a what came through to them, is only felt / sensed, and it stays in a darkness unseen to eyes, as it twist their soul into the thing of which they are not.
    Some say that the one of few will step forward and a balance will once again be in place, while others disrupt by the telling of of the end within the Book, Revelations . As for me I read and I see that the fate of men is within their hands.
    Will I have shown you the links and a truth that you did not know, a world that should have been lost in knowledge of things so old and built within Empires, so help to pay this forward.
