Wow! It's getting deep

Sorry, but my BS meter is going off.

These words of Jerry Kieschnik, President of the LC-MS, about Mollie Hemingway's piece in the Wall Street Journal are too much.
What is even more disturbing is the false and misleading picture she presents of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as a deeply divided church regarding its mission and ministry.
False? Misleading??

Either Pres. K. is seriously delusional or he needs to go re-read his catechism, paying special attention to the eighth commandment.

For more on this go here, and here.

Now, Jane, you know that the saddest part of SPK's response is that it was so very predictable.

He is what he is, and the Purple Politburo is what it is. That all being true, the response just couldn't be anything more than the warmed over retelling of Strand's press release, albeit with a few extra "No story here, keep moving along!" feints thrown in, that it was.

It's sad, but it's true.

In protest, I listened to Issues Etc on my mp3player while I spent several hours in Meijers yesterday.

Way to go, Polly!

There's an elephant in the living room? Who knew! Does it have to sit on the man before he notices?
