I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4

WELS 2015 Convention Theme - Stay Calm and Blame Ichabod

This has been the theme of WELS for years,
but now it is official.
And the prostitution charge against a WELS pastor has 1800 views+.

Whenever someone brings up an unpleasant fact about WELS, the proper response is, "Where did you hear that?"

If the answer is "Ichabod," then a long, ignorant, insult-filled tirade follows. Many have regaled me with the details, from various parts of the country. The facts do not matter, since the idea is to make this blog radioactive and all information equally toxic.

Verbatim copies of news stories are attacked if I mark the key points in boldface.

The facts about WELS are appalling. While WELS pastors brag privately about how crude they are, they hate for the public to see through their sanctimonious posturing. They honor the drunks among them and give them honors, then support the alcoholics who get themselves into trouble.

Laity are not too impressed when their pastor or DP or worship professor gets a DUI and perhaps a car wreck in the process. One man had to go pull his mission pastor out of a bar.
