For those of you who don’t know, I have deep Lutheran roots. We are a funny lot.

Some of you have no idea what a Lutheran is.

Have a look at this very short VIDEO BY THE “BANGLES” and you’ll know everything you need to know :-).

Some Lutheran FAQ’s:

  1. Are Lutherans liturgical? Most are. Many are not.
  2. Do Lutherans agree on theology? Except for “Sola Fide” (Faith Alone), nope. And we argue about what that means.
  3. Are Lutherans like Catholics except in “black and white?” Often. Sleepy version of the mass without cool candles, statues and magic stuff.
  4. Who are the great Lutheran preachers? Next question!
  5. Do Lutherans have a sense of humor? Rarely, but it can happen.
  6. Are Lutherans liberals? Some are virtually Marxists. Most of them hang out in seminaries or become bishops.
  7. Are Lutherans conservatives? The black-shirt conservatives could scare all the peeps on Fox News. They don’t think you’re really saved, by the way. They KNOW I’m not :-).
  8. Where do they tend to live? Scandihoovia and parts of Germany. Pennsylvania. Upper Midwest USA. Wherever there is bad weather. But the cool ones live in Ethiopia. They do fire baptisms and stuff.
  9. Why do we see less and less of them? They reproduce like Panda bears and would rather die than share their faith.
  10. Who are some famous, high-profile, deeply committed Lutherans we would all know? ROTFL
