Women are ordained in the majority of the world's Lutheran synods, and it is no accident that one that does not, the highly reactionary Missouri Synod in America, is the one with which Vanags and the LELB have a partnership.
And, in fact, just this week a Lutheran congregation in the western Latvian town of Liepaja announced that it was leaving the LELB and joining the LELB Abroad.
The problem in the LELB is that anyone who completes his theological education and applies to be ordained is told that he will be ordained only if he opposes the ordination of women.
