|Steve Spencer, below, is the circuit pastor named in the letter.|
GJ - Circuit Pastor Steve Spencer is supposedly on the side of the angels, with his leadership of the Intrepid Lutherans. Did he endorse the sending of this threatening letter?
I remember ELCA being scorned for hiding behind lawyers when they merged. Twenty-five years later, WELS is using the same tactics - under the reformers SP Mark Schroeder and DP Jon Buchholz.
This lawyer letter is so full of blarney - I would swear the authors were Fitzgerald and Fitzgerald. I have heard that a 501c can cost $500, but I missed the part about $10,000 being involved. That must include bribing the Mexican police after buying a trunkload of weed.
The congregation could probably get along fine with an IRS tax number, in the interim, and an honest law firm helping them with the rest. There is always Legal Zoom, etc. I doubt whether this DUI and sex offender law firm really wants to give useful advice.
The Boogey Man tactics are funny. They must work collecting on debts from illegals in Sierra Vista. "The military has its sights on your trailer-home. They might blow you to bits at 2 AM. Pay your cable bill or else."
Extending the Left Foot of Fellowship is one thing. Sending in the legal thugs is another. Like I said before, the UOJ Stormtroopers are all Law - not all Gospel.
