Something tells me there is more to this story than what John Carlson is reporting. I don’t understand why the Register felt this was worthy of being front page news. From what I read in the article it sounds like this person hasn’t been a part of Trinity Lutheran Church in Conroy, IA (LCMS) for a very long time. I’ve always wondered why people who are no longer active in a church still want their names on the membership roles.
I’m sure it could have been handled better though. I do applaud the church for not defending itself and not talking to the press in what they say is an internal matter, in other words, “Carlson it is none of your business!”
What do you think?
