HA. If there's one thing Lutherans aren't shy about, it's drinking. Strong German heritage I guess.

There's a Lutheran church around here that has a liquor license.

Why does it matter that she was a former cop? The guy killed a person, and personally I think it's more interesting that she gave it all up to raise kids.

The Rev. Blake Rohrer, assistant to the bishop, said Monday that synod staff and the executive committee are handling day-to-day ministry and functions.  "We're holding the family of the woman who was killed in our prayers and we are really asking that God would be with them and provide them comfort in their grief and all those who have been impacted," Rohrer said.

Sorry one of our guys killed your family member.  We think believing in our god will make it all better.

fark you.

Well, it's because she realized that she was wasting her life being a drain on society if she didn't have children. There's no higher calling for a woman than to be a mother.

Unless he was arm-deep in an altar boy's arse for the entire altercation then he's barely made a dent.

How Fosterite. Do they do lots of casino nights? The occasional church sponsored orgy?

So I take it we're not very ecumenical around here, huh?

Oh please let it not be a Missouri Synod District President...*click* whew...

The only guy in the LCMS who was able to call himself a bishop is from the English District, which my husband belongs as Pastor Emeritus and also our current congregation we attend services.  If our Bishop pulls that drinking while driving crap, I will personally give him a cock-punch, and urge the judge to let him rot in jail for utter stupidity and disregard for human life.

Don't confuse those Missouri Synod tea totalers with the rest of us. We drink - we drink a lot.  We nearly had a lynching when someone suggested we stop using real wine in communion!

Lutherans don't become cardinals. They become woodpeckers.

Protestant theology proves that Protestants can eff up.

Sola scriptura: that ain't in the Bible.

The communal wine just proves too tempting for some people! That's why we Lutherans use grape Kool-Aid for the blood of Christ.

Even the evangelical Lutherans here drink a few beers. Hard to avoid in a state full of Germans and Scandinavians.

I grew up Missouri Synod & they were not tea totalers. They stayed true to their heritage as card-playing, beer-drinking Germans. My dad used to give our pastor a bottle of whiskey as a Christmas present.

That's a crock of shiat.  When I was a grad student at one of our seminaries, we have a Friday post-class happy hour (Gemütlichkeit!) and students and profs drank beer together.  And every year we have a symposia...and beer is included.

Cool story, sis time: Last year, the president of the Synod was there at the symposia.  There were receptions and I saw Harrison hosting the wine table.  "What would you like?" he asked.

"VODKA! NOW!!!"

"Consider that you were clamoring for it, you do not need it.  Have some wine instead."

Yeah- MO Synod definitely do drink. The church I mentioned above is LCMS. The local LCMS seminarians visit the local bars with some frequency. Martin Luther himself was known to be something of a beer snob for the time.

Since never.  Quote from a movie, which apparently is too obscure.  That's unusual on Fark.

OMG, Jell-o Salad! I had almost forgotten that fugly mess!

Cool Story, Sis: Mom is ELCA Lutheran, Dad is Roman Catholic. They raised us kids in the ELCA as 'Lutherans with Catholic tendencies' because of the whole ordaining-women thing, but Mom still managed to use Dad's Cath-ness as an excuse to get out of lutefisk and Jell-O Salad. We were the only children in Sunday School who were spared both horrors. Between that and getting all these cool books and trading cards about the saints, and being the only kids with rosaries, I really had a great time in church.

No such luck with my upbringing. At least German Lutherans can cook, unlike the Norwegians...
