She clearly disapproves, as do most of the commenters (excepting Jeremy Abel and Russ).
I’m with Jeremy and Russ. I don’t claim to know the motives of President Kieschnick (as do Bunnie’s commenters), but taking the press release at face value, there is nothing wrong with cooperating in various non-theological endeavors with other Christians. For that matter, if Muslims, Jews, and Buddhists are protesting at Planned Parenthood, I’d gladly stand side by side with them. Now, if either President Kieschnick or the elcA plans on using this as a means to theological unity, I do have a major problem. Unity comes from agreement in doctrine, not helping people–which is only one of the major problems with the modern ecumenical movement. (Is there such a thing anymore?)
I think it is imperative that we, as human beings, work for the good of our neighbor, so where that happens, it is usually a good thing as long as helping the neighbor is the goal. I can see the point of disliking the “official” nature of the whole thing. I do not know why it was necessary to sign any formal agreement on this. Just do it; there’s no need to make it symbolic of anything larger.
