Lutherans Fade into the Sunset of the West

They have hands and feel not: they have feet and walk not: neither shall they cry out through their throat. -Saint King David

Edit: As Lutheranism becomes increasingly irrelevant, struggling to maintain its numbers while it reaches out to minority populations while it further derationates its "principles", it becomes indistinguishable from everything that goes on outside of it.

As Lutheran "leaders" usher in Buddhist gurus and Yoga prayer groups, all that remains behind are aging congregants and elderly spiritual vagrants from 68" Here's a story about how they're casting a vote that would have made Martin Luther regret he took the destructive steps he made so long ago.
[Star Tribune] Minneapolis-area Lutherans on Friday went on record against changing the state Constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman. Their vote made them one of the largest faith groups yet to formally oppose the amendment that will go before voters Nov. 6, which would ban same-sex marriage in Minnesota. Close to 700 Lutherans, representing congregations in the Minneapolis Area Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, voted on a resolution opposing the amendment at the group's annual assembly at a Prior Lake church. When the vote was called, those in favor of the resolution flashed green cards with the word "yes." Those against it waved red cards that said "no." The greens overwhelmed the reds, and no formal tally was called for by synod leaders.

Well. And yet the Holy Father continues to count on them more than on SSPX--and with good reason, half his foot is in their corner, with V2! Hey Tancred, I just want to say, I'm writing a Catholic science fiction novel in which a group of Catholics heist a mining pod (big ship) from the first space colony (after an Obama look alike declares the One World Religion to go with her One World Government)and high tail it for a shielded asteriod in the Oort cloud, and reinstate a king, a descendent of King St. Ferdinand. I'm writing his introductory scene right now (I'm supposed to me, I mean!). He's a lot like Silent Bob, except holy. If you ever want to serve as a reader, just volunteer.

Now, I'm going to look for how to subscribe to your blog. It's so good and I never visit!

To follow your blog, I had to go all the way to the bottom, and that's a long way! Could you move that button up?
