I am a Lutheran and I am so proud of our President Matthew Harrison. He spoke clearly and strongly in defense of our religious liberty.
I believe government should defend people’s freedom, not attack it. I am very concerned about the growing encroachment of big-brother government trampling on our consciences and our moral ideals. Where will it end?
I would like to thank LCMS President Matthew Harrison for testifying before Congress regarding the Health and Human Services contraception mandate.
This mandate is a direct assault on religious liberty and it is extremely important that representatives of all faiths continue to make their voices heard on this issue.
Hopefully, the courage displayed by President Harrison will encourage other LCMS members and everyone who values religious liberty as guaranteed by our United States Constitution to speak out on this vital issue.
The March Reporter was great, bringing us up-to-date on all the meetings we are having. Not to be outdone by the meetings are the symposia that we are having. That is followed closely by reporting of the convention the Southern Illinois District had.
While I am grateful for President Harrison’s comments before the Capitol Hill types, I’m more grateful for the good work to be done by the volunteer center in Minot, N.D. The one piece in the entire Reporter that reported on something other than talking was this article about flood cleanup. Thanks so much for the work being accomplished in North Dakota.
Thanks also for the many meetings, panels, symposia, theological dialogue, conferences, conventions, caucuses and other conversations we are having. I now know who’s talking. I wonder who’s listening.
Rev. Timothy Klinkenberg
