Luther Days Conference - With Its Porn Connections Lead the Week's Views.
Is Anyone Watching the Store in the ELS and WELS?

When WELS-ELS promotes a Luther Days Conference,
why is the official Luther Days Twitter account following porn sites,
spouse swapping, porn addiction, and Church and Changers?
Breaking News - Luther Days is following this new Twitter account - pure pornography.

---


The Luther Days Festival is one of the most exciting events around for Confessional Lutherans and is the largest distinctly Lutheran festival in North America! This one-of-a-kind event is for the entire family and brings Martin Luther and the Reformation to life by offering participants a uniquely interactive and distinctly Lutheran experience for all ages. The festival also embraces the heritage of the Lutheran Church and is an action-packed day with hands-on exploration into the reformation, our Lutheran faith, and the German heritage of the immigrant Lutherans.




I asked my safe computer expert for an analysis of the Luther Days list of Twitter accounts Natalie Pratt was following. Many - but not all of the accounts - have been erased since I began revealing the list.

Not to worry - I have the images saved on my hard drive - samples just of the accounts' lead graphics, mind you. One glance inside the accounts - appalling.

Here is a sample - one Twitter account being followed was titled Couples. The account invited open-minded couples to book cruises where they could swap partners. The account endorsed - with a link - partner swapping as a marriage-building event.

Some of them are simply Twitter leads into the same porn account, since the names vary on the outside (with different graphics) and the actual Twitter address is the same. The Evangelical accounts were descriptive on the outside - "I am a Christian mother with two children and a deep love for my Savior." The porn accounts featured a woman's image (safe) and no description at all. That is what fooled me the first time I looked through some of the 2500 accounts. My safe computer expert clued me in a bit. Oh. Yuk.

Luther Days was officially following a large group of porn accounts, dozens of cure your porn addiction accounts, every ELCA entity account I could imagine, and the WELS Church and Changers.

Synod President Mark Schroeder - you have met with Natalie Pratt. This is one colossal joke right? This Luther Days conference reminds me of your tightening up synod expenses only to have Leon Piepenbrink, aka Leon Brink, aka Lightfingers Leon skim $300,000 from the coffers of WELS.

I would not call this conference "distinctly Lutheran" but "stinkily WELS."


Pastor Paul Lidke -
are you in on this joke?


Pastor Paul Lidtke, Bethlehem, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Oshkosh being last known address of the conference leader, Natalie Pratt - You have met often with Natalie Pratt. Have you considered how bizarre and disgusting this debacle is? You call your congregation Distinctively Lutheran. Would you call a conference organized by two women and full of Church and Changers - Distinctively Lutheran?


ELS Pastor Jay Webber - you had no problem collecting money from Floyd Luther Stolzenburg, another Church Growth guru, and naming a Ukraine church after his Masonic stronghold. Do you have any problems appearing with a founder of Church and Change, Jim Aderman?

PS to those who want to silence or edit this blog -
You want to spin the message your way, to help out your buddies in Oshkosh and Waukesha. Why not do your job in ELS/WELS instead?


When Aderman was done kissing frogs,
his parish was shrunk 50% and his school was closed.
The parish fired him, but he maneuvered back in.
He is a founder of Church and Change,
a former board member, too.
