WELS is trying to keep someone from playing an organ concert at the Wisconsin Synod mother church, Historic St. John Lutheran Church in Milwaukee.
Remember Dave Peters? - Union Grove - Issues in WELS. He has threatened the organist. Before, SP Mark Schroeder did the same thing.
"They are not in fellowship with us. You will kill your career in WELS."
WELS kicked Pastor Kevin Hastings out because he tagged (spray painted on the sidewalk) a WELS church that was violating the Sixth Commandment. Kevin apologized and paid for the damages - immediately.
The Church and Change DP pushed him off the ministerial list, then kicked out St. John for being loyal to their pastor.
Therefore, WELS created their own problem.
Do they threaten Professor Tiefel for bringing a group of students to tour St. John? Oh no! I just thought of this - I hope Tiefel was not driving!
Do they threaten Mark Jeske for working with ELCA and Missouri, for funding them through Thrivent?
Do they threaten Glende, Ski, Parlow, and Buske for worshiping with Andy Stanley, the Babtist gay activist?
Do they threaten the Mequon faculty for making Calvinist and CG books required reading while warning their students against justification by faith?
The same synod took busloads of supporters to Al Just murder trial. The father of the First VP of WELS testified as a character witness for Al Just, who was found guilty.
Was DP Ed Werner excommunicated for abusing little girls in his congregation for decades?
Why was Joel Hochmuth publicly absolved by SP Schroeder?
WELS is an abusive cult.

How is this any different than when the handbell choir from Westminster Choir College performed a concert at Grace in Waukesha, WI in 1998?
Obviously there's something missing from the story because Thomas Trotter performed a concert at MLC on April 17 of this year.
