Lutheran Bishop Writes an Open Letter in Favor of Nondiscrimination

The Rev. Kurt F. Kusserow, Bishop of Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America just released an open letter in favor of SB/HB 300. Read the letter here.

The Bishop states, “Our church’s boldness in speaking in support of this legislation does not come from our own achievements, but from our yearning. We reach together for the anticipated ‘peaceable kingdom,’ the day when the identity of each person is valued and all are protected from harm.”

The Southwestern Pennsylvania Synod includes about 67,000 members in 174 congregations in ten counties in Southwestern Pennsylvania.
