Gutsche apparently told Koenig that he would not attend this year's Free Conference in Germany so as not to be an embarrassment. But the CLC (sic) is budgeting another $5,000 for this -- what a waste of money.
GJ - Koenig is simply one more dysfunctional pastor taken seriously by Herman Otten.
Gutsche plea-bargained his conviction down, but he was convicted and fired from his job as an ELCA pastor - after being a CLC (sic) pastor. At some point he was also a WELS pastor.
Gutsche misrepresented his case to me on the phone, a line of blather he probably tries on everyone. Dismissing his case, after being on probation, means the court was done dealing with him. The court documents, which I published, clearly state that dismissal does not mean innocent, just over and done with in the system.
Exactly how does the Church of the Lutheran Confession (sic) portray itself to German pastors as an alternative to those horrible ELCA style pastors when Gutsche is one of them, helping to organize this farce each time?
ELCiC is the Canadian version of ELCA, eh? Here is their bishop, Susan Johnson.
