I know I speak for a vast number of Lutherans when I support muting the discussions. Let's not look at all sides. Let's just stopping talking about it all.
Go for the middle. The best possible approach is compromise. I am not against dithering, either. Wait and see what happens.
The Martin Luther complex makes me tired. He was lucky he didn't get himself killed. You know you are wrong when you have to be kidnapped to save your neck.
He hurt a lot of feelings. He made fun of the pope and called him names.
Luther called Dr. Eck, a distinguished theologian, Dreck. I am not German so I asked what that meant. I was shocked. No wonder he alienated so many people.
Fortunately we have leaders today who know how to be pragmatic. We do not have to know everything. Keep us happy and contented.
I can read the synod magazine and fall asleep in the La-Z-Boy, calm and relaxed. That is the ideal.
