The American Spectator has taken note of Neuhaus' last book, published at the time of his death a year ago.
Neuhaus began in the LCMS, working with Robert Wilken to displace Herman Otten and Kurt Marquart as student editors at Our Lady of Sorrows (aka Concordia Seminary, St. Louis).
Missouri is very tough on apostates. Father Neuhaus was invited to speak at The Surrendered Fort (aka Concordia, Ft. Wayne) on the topic "How I Became the Catholic I Always Was." About half the audience nodded in agreement as he spoke. As Pope B-16 said, "Ach, those Missouri Synod Lutherans."
Missouri Lutherans must be curious about being stuck with Kieschnick as their all-powerful but incompetent leader, an Enthusiast among Enthusiasts. How many seminaries can call themselves The Fort and invite a man famous for leaving to join:
- the Come-Outters of Seminex,
- the High Church Unitarians of the LCA/ELCA,
- and finally the Church of the Antichrist?
The last time Rome let a Lutheran speak, 1517, they had the stake and kindling ready. Luther had to be kidnapped and presumed dead to keep him alive.
Paul McCain, MDiv, wrote that his buddy Neuhaus allowed Missouri to communicate with His Excellency the Pope. Anyone who wants to see the polite side of McCain can visit the ELCA discussion group, ALPB.
