I still get Christian News, so I thought the lawsuit against the ladies in California, to take away their church property, was thrown out of court. Later, I read that the lawsuit was still ongoing.
The synods do not like lawyers and lawsuits, unless they are hiring the lawyers (with your offering money) and suing your congregation. The District Popes are above the law, so try to get them to do what is right when they lie, steal, abuse, and serve as pimps for their adulterous and molesting pastors.
Nevertheless, I thought the lawsuit was over for good when the dream candidate, Matt Harrison, was elected as Missouri Synod President. He replaced the eee-vul Jerry Kieschnick, so everything had to change.
One reader was quick to point out that Missouri is no different from the Episcopal Church in suing to take away congregational property. The degree of harm may be worse with Presiding Bishop Katie, but that is no defense of Missouri's continuing actions.
About 99.9% of the congregations will say, "That is their worry, way out West, in the Land of Fruit and Nuts, not ours."
Everyone has been saying that about one situation after another, for the last 50 years.
