A while back I stopped by a few times at a blog run by some NFP-type Roman Catholics who had insights I occasionally found useful. A post about something or other prompted me to email one of the bloggers and we had a nice little exchange. It somehow came up over the course of our correspondence that I was Lutheran. After I sent the message that had contained this embarrassing disclosure, I never heard from her again. Well.
I had also noticed on other RC sites that there were occasional grudging reminders that non-RC commentators should be treated civilly. I can sympathize. I don't have a lot of patience myself for the Calvinist and Anabaptist branches of the Reformation. But by golly, this is a rather lonely row to hoe. I know there are Concordian Sisters out there, but we're few and far between, especially because so many are pastors' families. So here's where I plan to sound off with a few of my friends, regardless of whether or not anyone is listening.
