74. Right on. I happen to be a member of one of those groups.

My congregation is an RIC (Reconciled In Christ) ELCA Lutheran congregation with a rainbow flag by the front steps. We are probably the most lefty church in the county and for sure the leftiest in our Foothills Conference (ELCA). We are growing in membership where the other churches are in decline. We went through a series of schisms dealing with the GLBT issue and now, we have lost all the Conservatives. We serve our community. Going through the cash that someone gave us 10 years ago by feeding the hungry and clothing the naked. When it is gone, it is gone. A church is not a building, it is the people. A YUGE factor of our congregation is the definition of Grace: G-d's undeserved love for all. NO EXCEPTIONS. We do not believe in a retributive G-d, but a cooperative G-d. We celebrate Ramadan with our Muslim neighbors. I am the gay deacon who at times leads the service. While most of us supported Bernie, we had no problem getting behind Hillary. Far better than the Cowardly Lying Orange Cokehead Caligula. Who is greed-driven, which last I checked, is a Deadly Sin.
