I was delighted (and not at all surprised) to note that there was NOT ONE Lutheran church, Missouri Synod (LCMS - my synod) included in the list of hereticals and apostates.
I'm still interested if anyone finds the list of those clergy who signed the endorsement with their approval of the gay marriage legislation.
The LCMS is much more conservative than the ELCA, so it's not surprising no LCMS churches ended up on the list of "gay friendly" churches. If any LCMS are "gay friendly", they're obviously confused and in the wrong denomination, and ought to join the ELCA.

I'd like to see the actual list too, since the Tribune conveniently didn't print it. Those pastors and congregations were bold enough to make a public statement so they should have to deal with the consequences. Any Catholic parish (at least, a real Catholic Church in communion with the Pope, not a fake "Independent Catholic" one) would be in grave defiance of church teaching if they endorse gay marriage, and there should be immediate action taken by their bishop (I don't expect Cardinal George would grow a pair and do anything about it though, he lets that heretical Obama-loving "Father" Pfleger do whatever he wants). Any SBC Southern Baptist parish endorsing gay marriage would also be in direct defiance of their church's teachings, though there's probably several black SBC parishes in Chicago that are very pro-Obama, and unlike the Catholic Church, I don't think the SBC could enforce any of their doctrines. Mormons are very adamently against gay marriage too, though there's next to no Mormons in Illinois despite this state being the former HQ of the LDS.

My guess is the bulk of the "gay marriage" signatories were Unitarian "churches" (some Unitarians don't even believe in God, why anyone would join one of their "churches" is beyond me... it would be like eating at a KFC that doesn't serve chicken). Also, virtually all the United Church of Christ parishes (Obama's "black power" church obviously eager to suck up to him) and probably quite a few liberal Episcopalian and Methodist parishes. Probably a lot of Reform Jewish rabbis signed it too, along with some "Conservative" Jewish rabbis (I doubt any Orthodox Jews did, though)
Nothing like helping destroy western civilization to be hip and trendy, ya know. Ironically I bet most of these "inclusive" churches are struggling to stay open. That's what happens when you take Christ out of Christianity.
