Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Raised in Missouri Synod. Practicing Deist. 'Nuf Said
give me doughnuts: If you want lemon bars, stay home on Sunday and make your own.
tallguywithglasseson: CSB, my (imaginary Canadian) girlfriend was brought up in a Missouri Synod Lutheran Church.She switched to Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), which despite the common connotation of "evangelical", is quite liberal.Now when she visits home & goes to her parents' church (also her former church), she isn't allowed to take communion.Apparently the Missouri and Wisconsin synods are pretty far right. I'd had no idea about any of this Lutheran stuff before.
Rev. Skarekroe: I could go for some coffee and lemon bars...
GoodyearPimp: OminousAnonymous: Anybody want to come to my house for Kahlua coffee and "special" lemon bars? I am starting a new religion where everyone has to be nice to each other. That's the only rule.Are we talking cyanide/Jim Jones "special", or chronic/Snoop Lion "special"?
Voiceofreason01: Yep, called it: Missouri Synod
you have pee hands: I .... um... have a hard time reading this as a point in favor of this "no joint worship" rule.
Frederick: trappedspirit: Cometh! You bastard. Cometh! He didn't say let's all hold hands and respect these other religions. He said He was THE way. If you think you can just mix and meld religions together to get some foo-foo spiritual feeling going and that's going to do squat about the truth then you must/should be stoned.So you interpret that as not needing to respect other religions?Jesus said "I am the way" and to you that means fark all others.
George Babbitt: I believe that agnostics aren't sure of what the truth is but would like to know, apatheists don't know and don't care.
Waldo Pepper: Hey look it is another anti Christian tread on fark where all the farkers who have tickets to hell get to show off how little they know about God
pciszek: Deucednuisance: More like "meeting with people who believe in the exact same invisible sky daddy, but their fan club has slightly different by-laws".There are Christians who would vehemently deny that Christians, Muslims, and Jews worship the same god. I have also encountered Jews who hold this position, and I suspect there are Muslims who would also. Hell, this guy's Missouri Synod probably does not recognize Catholics as worshiping the same god.
George Babbitt: Mark 12:29-30 ""The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength."
He did WHAT?
Earguy: You know that bumper sticker that says, "God said it, I believe it, that settles it"?Too many people have taken it too seriously.
ManRay: Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Me.
OminousAnonymous: Anybody want to come to my house for Kahlua coffee and "special" lemon bars? I am starting a new religion where everyone has to be nice to each other. That's the only rule.

d23: Make "Christianity" the official religion in the U.S. and immediately the fight changes to "what type."This is why the separation is in the constitution. And don't tell me it's not there, either...
Not sure if seriousOr Freudian slip
ko_kyi: There were forty religious representatives there.That's as many as four tens, and that's terrible.
d23: Sass-O-Rev: Earguy: You know that bumper sticker that says, "God said it, I believe it, that settles it"?Too many people have taken it too seriously.So very much, "this."Not only that.. but it's the Bible that said it, not God.
hinten: I wonder what Luther would say about this.
