Con-Evos and the ELCA

With the disclaimer that listening to a bunch of earnest, neo-Calvinist Intervarsity/Navigators-type men (they're always men) doing theology together is my idea of what hell's waiting room must be like...you can read what they think about ELCA Lutherans here and  Internet Monk, specifically the comboxes attached to the series on problems with Evangelicalism (written by an Evangelical-to-ELCA fence-jumper) and the discussion of Lutheran baptismal theology (always good for a cagefight in them thar parts).

Actually, I think hell's waiting room would be more fun. Except maybe for the smelly BP executives dripping crude oil and dead fish over in the corner.

much of the same rhetoric and articles have appeared regarding the Episcopal Church....people trying to make a lot out of nothing - by that I mean, not that many churches are leaving or falling out - but some want to make it seem like an all out crisis....as if.

To me it seems as if news of demographic shifts away from their own churches are adding to these guys' pissiness factor -- you know, "At least we're not like the ELCA."
