If you are angry (about the tension in St. Cloud) and want one entity to blame, it is Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, the primary federal refugee resettlement agency working in St. Cloud!
That supposedly ‘Christian’ charitable organization is directly responsible for the high Somali numbers in St. Cloud, and they are jointly responsible for bringing over ten thousand Somalis from around the world to colonize Minnesota towns in the last ten years alone—Catholic Charities and World Relief MN (now Arrive Ministries)*** helped also. Of course they have brought many more than 10,000 in over two decades and not just Somali Muslims!
Rumor has it that 1,500 new Somalis are going to be resettled by the Lutherans in St. Cloud this year. (This is part of former Rep. Michele Bachmann’s district!)
These three ‘Christian’ phony non-profits (phony Christians!) could stop the US State Department’s further seeding of the state if they just said NO! We won’t resettle any more Muslim ‘refugees.’ But they don’t! Why?
Why? Because it is big business (as we learned from Lutherans in New England)! They dare not challenge their sugar daddy—the federal government! And, they must be afraid of the growing power of the Islamists and the Islamist front group—Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)—which they are responsible for unleashing on the city of St. Cloud.
So how much money does it take to buy the Lutherans?
Back in 2013 we told you that then Minnesota Lutheran CEO, Mark Peterson, was pulling down a salary of $441,767.
We went to a recent audit linked on their website and here are some numbers we found (audit ending September 30, 2014):
They had total revenue of $103,135,439 and received $91,887,312 from GOVERNMENT FEES AND GRANTS. (Go here and click on ‘financials’ to see for yourself).
That makes them 89% government funded! That is a government agency not a charity, and surely not a ‘Christian’ charity!
The progressive ‘religious Left’ is living off of the US taxpayer!
Doing well by doing good?
Salaries and payroll accounted for $57,929,172 of your money—your tax dollars for that one year!
Jodi doesn’t pull down a salary as high as Peterson (LOL! War on women?) her predecessor did, but it is fairly substantial none-the-less as we learned from a recent Form 990. She was compensated with $280,812 and an additional $42,495 came from related organizations (whatever that is!).
Her second in command, Kenneth Borle, made $202,087 and $33,192 (from related organizations).
They have 8 other employees making over six-figure salaries!
Go here for the others in leadership at Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota responsible for building the aggressive and demanding Muslim population of the state.
And if you are looking for more people to blame for what is happening to Minnesota, here is the Board of Directors (do you know any of them?):

Rev. Dr. Rolf Jacobson

The main office of Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota is here (below). It is time to let them know how you feel, to put the pressure on the organization directly responsible for disrupting St. Cloud.
Good Lutherans especially need to speak up!
And, according to the US State Department’s handy list of contractors the St. Cloud Lutheran resettlement agency office is here:
MN-LIRS-08: Lutheran Social Services Of Minnesota
22 Wilson Avenue Suite 110
St. Cloud, MN 56302
One more thing! Tell Rep. Trey Gowdy what he has in store for his community if a refugee resettlement site is established in Spartanburg, SC.
See our complete archive on St. Cloud here. And, click here, for an enormous archive on Minnesota. See especially our earliest post (2011), and one of our top posts of all time, when we first learned of the three ‘Christian’ groups swamping Minnesota with Somalis at the behest of the US State Department.
*** An indicator that the heat is on some of these phony Christian organizations is that they are changing their names. Note that World Relief Minnesota is now Arrive Ministries and Lutheran Social Services of New England is now Ascentria Care Alliance (here).
