Post Lutherans Find Common Ground with Catholics on HHS Mandate

Lutherans and Catholics are not historically known for their theological sympathy, but earlier this month the president of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod told the U.S. House that he will "stand with our friends in the Catholic Church" in opposition to a recent government ruling on contraception.

I am proud to have this man as my bishop. The Spirit may be working in ways here to bring us closer together.

I've always kind of liked Missouri Synod Lutherans. Not wishy washy like some of the ELCA churches these days. While it might be a bit trite to say 'united we stand, divided we fall', I still really appreciate their stance in support of truth. Thank you.

As you should be. I would have given my eye teeth to see him tell it like it is. Cardinal Dolan also hit the nail on the head......"if this get's passed, where does it stop?" Surgical abortions you can be almost possitive are next. And what about the elderly? Will they cost too much for the country to "maintain"? The drugs they need "too expensive"? This Bishop along with all of the Bishops that are fighting this KNOW that this isn't the end of it. It will be all downhill from there.

And Cardinal Dolan? What a wonderful defender of the faith, and shepherd for his flock. I'm really impressed!!

Seems like Harrison and Dolan are two of a kind in this way.
