  •  bureaucrats vs the laity - post 9-11 MSL kerfuffle (3+ / 0-)

    as a MSL escapee/survivor, I keep up w the synod shenanigans via my still-an-inmate mother.  And the post 9-11 interfaith suspension did not go down well with the people in the pews, especially the women (who still aren't counted as exactly full human beings).  

    The bureaucrats/men in black suits got enough grief w that bone-headed stunt to have to go around to the churches mansplaining proper MSL doctrine (nobody gets to play with Jebus except us-can you recite Luther's lil catechism w/o looking-are you really one of us?), and still, got a boat-load of push-back.  

    Most MSL-ers (that I know) at this point are elderly (and near-tea-bagger-ish in their politics and faith - law = order above all else) so its unlikely they'll leave over this latest lack of empathy and "christian" charity of thought and deed.  But, it'll be interesting if this new guy gets a suspension of the same length or what.
