|Mark Schroeder, the dream candidate of the conservatives,|
quickly became the main support for Church and Change.
The SynConference introduced me to the concept of the "helpless, powerless president." I first heard that claim from the Michigan LCMS DP, who said he was powerless to deal with the Pentecostal pastor of a congregation near him in Ann Arbor. He also talked about "getting rid" of a pastor who homeschooled his child. Powerless was a choice, I quickly learned.
Considering how often Schroeder and his hatchet men have jumped people for posting on this blog, his let-go-and-let-God attitude toward the Fox Valley WELS gang is a certain sign of approval. Maybe he tells them not to sign their names. Only Paul McCain, another plagiarist (but not WELS) signs his name.
Schroeder jumped all over Herman Otten at Christian News for publishing my review of the Engel book on homosexual priests in the Roman Catholic Church. I included certain unpleasant facts about "Party in the MLC," the ongoing WELS gay video, still playing on Facebook, twice uploaded to YouTube, shown with pride at their college night.
Schroeder forced Otten to apologize for printing my review. Soon after, Schroeder's Director of Communications was arrested by the FBI for multiple felonies - crimes against little boys, crimes against nature, as they used to say. The gay blogs are having a field day with Hochmuth's arrest and his prior letter against ELCA gaity.
But when someone told Schroeder about an active homosexual pastor in WELS, the Grand Inquisitor of WELS turned helpless again. He said, "Write a letter." On bold days of courageous leadership, he says, "Send a certified letter."
And you wonder why your children and wives are not safe in WELS?
Fox Valley can rave all they want about this blog. The fact is - their behavior and doctrine is revolting to their own pastors and members. Almost everything I have posted is from their own synod, their own district.
A group of laity and pastors met together and tried to get this message across to the Anything Goes DP. He skipped the meeting. He has made it known that he will not retire.

Greeks act like WELS officialdom and CG pastors. Their deification doctrine is much like UOJ in that they can never feel real guilt, but only what false guilt. UOJers know they are already forgiven for every sin before they were born, and are righteous in God's eyes before they were even born. To actually feel guilty and unforgiven for a sin is really just another sin of unbelief according to UOJ. The Antinomians are really the only ones who really "get" the doctrine UOJ since the law has no power to make them feel guilty--ever:
Greek Orthodox deification behind Euro crisis:
SPIEGEL: Then on top of it all, there were rebukes being issued from Berlin.
Dimou: Yes, Wolfgang Schäuble was always wagging his finger like a schoolteacher, saying the Greeks had misbehaved. Merkel was somewhat more humane, but still very Protestant in her strictness, applying the concept of guilt. They could have seen that wasn't the way to achieve the desired result. It was simply the wrong approach.
GJ - WELS elected Mark Schroeder for doctrinal and financial integrity. He has made Gurgle look good in comparison.
Schroeder has consistently protected and promoted the Church and Changers.
His administration managed to buy a second headquarters building without selling the old, musty one.
UOJ absolves everyone, except those who dissent from the wisdom of Holy Mother Church.

I should have known this would happen. It's over Joel Hochmuth. Here is one example:

Here's hoping that these pro-gay activists come to see how much those in WELS who hold fast to Biblical doctrine love them by proclaiming the Truth to them of condemnation in their sin. And here's hoping that some Christian brothers in WELS, or any group can proclaim the pure doctrine of forgiveness merited by Jesus for them and for us on the cross.
GJ - WELS handed them the ammunition. When a predator (Hochmuth) and his boss (Schroeder) send out a pious announcement about ELCA's sins, they should expect some return fire from those who see their pronouncement as hypocrisy.
ELCA is honest. I disagree with them, but they are not pretending. WELS demands apologies when they should be confessing their decades of abuse, which they cover up maladroitly.
One Fox Valley WELS person told me about one of their youth ministers, arrested for dallying with the boys at his church. The story was on TV one night and disappeared immediately after. Four WELS pastors have told me about the homosexuals they met or knew about in the ministerium.
