KFUO Audio: Synod’s Drinnon, Slayton discuss political agenda of words

We are Free to be Faithful - KFUO Interview

Words have power. Words educate, inform and entertain us. Words can shape our vision of our world. Words can be used to distort truth. Words can be weapons.

The positive and negative power of words was the topic as LCMS Communications’ Roger Drinnon and Peter Slayton joined host Kip Allen on August’s “Free to be Faithful” program on Worldwide KFUO. Drinnon is director of Editorial and Media Relations, and Slayton is manager of Social Media.

The discussion focused on changes in the news-reporting and social-media lexicon, including recent changes to The Associated Press Stylebook that impact language regarding LGBT, marriage and life issues.

    Would it not be an honest concern to question the contradiction when a person refers to themselves as “Pro Life”, yet support Capital Punishment? Lutherans for Life has always bothered me because they are actually “anti-abortion”.(They are not against all that threatens life!). They are not against the proliferation of guns. They are not against Capitol Punishment. They are not supportive of conscientious objectors.

    Bottom line: you do not have an obligation to follow the AP workbook, anyway!
