I wonder how many see the irony in Sawyer's comment?
As a Lutheran of a conservative synod, I am really troubled by the placement of these two men in front of the church's sign. To those who are unaware of the differences among the synods it really misrepresents the Lutheran doctrine. Unfortunately, ELCA is the largest and most controversial, and therefore gets all the press.

You're right, of course, but this is the media that couldn't tell the difference between sunni and shia for months and seemed to feel no shame in the fact.
My guess is that the Missouri Synod will feel the pressure from the fallout from its liberal cousin.

(BEWARE the LIBERAL/MEDIA Complex)
I agree. I have spent a lifetime in the LCMS (c0nservative synod) and hate being painted with that brush. I have heard that the conservative synods have started calling them selves confessional Lutherans (following the Augsburg confession)
I hate to give up the name Lutheran, with its heritage, but if this group of apostate libs does not stop calling itself Lutheran, we may need to call ourselves something else.
