On February 6, 2014, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans announced a “Financial Neutrality Policy” regarding funding of charitable organizations. Thrivent now categorizes abortion and homosexuality as merely “social issues,” while we continue to regard them as moral/doctrinal issues at odds with the Word of God. We remain deeply concerned with these new developments and urge Thrivent members to contact the company with their questions and concerns.
Thrivent, a non-profit fraternal benefit society, has no official connection with the Evangelical Lutheran Synod. You may read the new policy here: https://service.thrivent.com/forms/thriventchoice/neutrality.html
