What? No Lutheran Jihad?

I Am a Christian, Too — one of the fine blogs in the Progressive Christian Blogger Network — writes:

If there were a Lutheran Jihad, and they were giving out Lutheran Jihad Names, I wouldn’t have had to join the Unitarian Jihad. But the Lutherans are all distracted by this Sexuality Task Force, so they haven’t gotten around to forming a Solidarity with Unitarian Jihad Task Force. But then, if they did, they would recommend that:

We not change our policy of condemning Jihadish behavior, but…

. . . we forego disciplinary action towards Lutheran clergy that, for reasons of conscience, make common cause with Unitarian Jihadis . . .

. . . and we continue to dialogue regarding whether the ELCA desires to allow the Jihad issue to divide our church.

Of course, there would also be the dissenting view from the Word Alone Lutherans that, since Luther opposed actions against civil authority, any cooperation with the Unitarian Jihad makes us un-Lutheran, or worse, Calvinist.

Oh no. Look what we've done.

I just watched Jon Stewart or Colbert for the first time and am puzzled over the inclusion of "Lutherans" on something called the On Notice board. What's that all about anyway?
