Check Cyberstones for evidence of LCMS infant communion obsession. One of the posts says, "I was talking to an Eastern Orthodox friend of mine, and he said..." Oh yes - my EO friend who graduated from The Fort, center of rock-ribbed Lutheran doctrine.
Click here for Gary Gehlbach's infant communion website.
Here is the faux-Augustana Ministerium, the cubic zirconia of Lutheran confessionalism:
Rev. Robert Schaibley, Superintendent; Rev. Dr. Kent Heimbigner, Legate; Rev. Gary Gehlbach, Recording Secretary; Rev. Gregory Schultz, Bursar; Rev. Eric Stefanski, Dean of Communications; Rev. Dr. Steven Hein, Dean of Education; Rev. James Heiser, Dean of Missions; Rev. Michael Liese, Dean of Pastoral Care; Rev. Drew Newman, Dean of Pastoral Recruitment. Faux-Augustana overlaps ELDONA, so the nano-group with the superfluity of mini-bishops must be the farm team for ELDONA.

saxoniae has left a new comment on your post "Obsession with Infant Communion":
I'll admit that I'm really scared of LCMS pastors who keep bringing up infant communion. Pr. Petersen posted on his blog back in early 2007 in response to Rev. McCain's disagreement with infant communion:
"Newsflash1: people have questions about this. Newsflash2: the Confessions haven't addressed it as directly or fully as you claim."
I replied to him that people have questions about this only because certain pastors who want it keep bringing it up.
I didn't get a response to that.
But what is your problem with Augustana Ministerium? Last I heard it was an organization providing financial support for faithful pastors who had been "fired" from their Calls.

GJ - Hmm. I thought you read my post. Faux-Augustana is another lobby for Eastern Orthodoxy.
Heart-thumps for EO include many other aspects for this non-confessional, high church fad. I am not against formal liturgical worship, but I do question the integrity of men who call themselves Lutheran (as Neuhaus and Fenton did) up to the point where they tear away the mask and own up to their foreign allegiance.
Motley Magpie is another, tediously superior, EO stalking horse.
