So, why forty denominations of the Lutheran Church? Anonamom, I took a stab at that question in my 11:51 am post. I would add that just sitting in congregational meetings at our church, lots on strong opinions among the hard-headed traditionalists. Lots of arguments that lead to fractures that lead to splits and then "new and improved" Synods.

The "American" hotel served strange selections for breakfast including green salads. Momto2 I traveled to China roughly twice a year for over a decade, as we had quite a bit of business there. We did our part with balance of trade:) I would stay an "American" hotels when possible because they would have eggs and bacon (kinda) and if I ate enough, I could survive whatever the rest of the day threw me. However, one of the best breakfasts I had was picked up at a little roadside shack somewhere near Guangzhou. It was a bowl of broth and noodles with poached songbird eggs floating in the broth. Actually was fantastic. Probably had some green leafy stuff in the broth too.

"Barak Obama is buying a mega mansion in Martha's Vineyard that cost $15 million dollars" Hmmm, after they build the brick wall high enough to keep them safe, the Island might tip over:)

MM Since you have been going to a Catholic Church, at least you won't find the kneelers unusual. First time I went to a Lutheran Church was with my Aunt and Uncle when I was about 7. Had no clue what they were. Like you, I was raised Methodist.

TLG mentions the Missouri Synod, and I know of the Wisconsin Evangelical Synod, the one my BIL is a pastor in. The other large one is the Evangelical Synod, Wiki tells me, and there are 37 other denominations. Anonamom, our Lutheran Church was part of the ELCA for several decades. Our congregation was established in the 1950's by conservative ethnic Germans and Scandinavians in the 'burb that borders the OSU campus. As the ELCA became more "progressive" the "powers that be" in the congregation pushed back. Because the church constitution required that we be a member of a Synod, they helped launch a new one: https://thenalc.org/ I think a lot of congregations moved away from traditional Synods for similar reasons.

From "stakeholders not shareholders" to the US Vegan Climate ETF (no, I am not making this up), we are now securitizing wokeness. No thanks Henry. I think I will buy some more guns and ammo stock:)

Obviously I'm a sterner taskmaster... Roger that. Come hell or high water, no way I'm going to go to work for CH:)

What does the left gain out of grifting money to the Gaylord family? I think it is more like a final payment from an individual or small group for a "job well done".

I'm willing to bet that the back channel to Denmark has been "You sell Greenland to the Chinese and there will be hell to pay".

then you never heard the old joke about offering the lady in the bar $1 million for sex. I never heard the joke, but trust me, it doesn't work:)

Jane, regulars know when I am making a funny, but every once in a while somebody new takes me literally and gets huffy for whatever reason motivates them. OL, I am just happy that the incoming fire for "white privilege" will have you in it's sights way before me:)

I don't think Jerome Powell will be inviting the Trumps to any dinner parties.

and how the strip clubs on The Block would go by the wayside because of tv. Back in the 70s our major competitor was Baltimore based. I had a customer tell me once that while our product was superior, Columbus had nothing like "The Block":)

The Fed releases the minutes of the July meeting today at 2 Eastern. Hopefully, the language in the minutes is not as clumsy as Powell in front of a microphone.

I will bet we own Greenland by 2024. Sounds like the Greenlanders are all for it. Maybe they can get some guys from Hong Kong to come and help organize protests:)

So the Danes are having serious butthurt for being stood up for the prom. Yes Trump is "unpredictable". That is a big reason why he is effective.

OL, I think most of the reason for the churches going down the tubes in the West is a fundamental cultural shift over the last 50 years. Most people find the idea of subservience to anything, distasteful. Church leadership just reflects that.

We have the thermostat set to 76 during the day, but actually set it to 73 at night, so we can sleep better/easier. Does this mean I am using more than my "fair share" of electricity? Does this make me a bad person? Are some libtards going to protest at my front door?
