Rome is no panacea of perfection and the goofiness and idiocy we too often see in Lutheran parishes on Sunday morning is not isolated merely to us. . .
Footnote. . . Rome disciplined the priest. Well, that is visitation, supervision, and accountability. Despite what the Today show oohed and aahed over with clear sympathies toward the priest against the dark forces of authority, Rome did good. Now it is time for Lutherans to get a backbone and tell those doing some of the stupid stuff among us that it is time to stop. Period.
