David Strand Responds

I am angry over the Issues Etc. debacle, so much so I signed the petition and emailed David Strand. He returned my email and this just incited me all the more, it would have been better unanswered. I am copying my email and his response here so all can see just how hideous this whole thing is.

Dear Mr. Gielczyk:

Thank you for your e-mail. We are sorry for your disappointment over the change in KFUO-AM programming. However, we hope you will enjoy our future programs.

Sincerely in Christ,

David L. Strand
Executive Director
Board for Communication Services
The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod

Mr. Strand,
I have to assume that since Issues etc. was not losing money as a radio show your decision to cancel it must be a theological one. And since the show and it's host were fighting for the Biblical doctrine of sola fide you must disagree with this. This would, in my mind, call into question your own position in the Kingdom. I urge you to immediately change your decision, or at least resign your position before you can do any more damage to the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ crucified for sinners.

In Christ,
2 Cor. 10:5

Boy, Alan, isn't it a bit of an overreaction to assume they dropped them because they deny sola fide? What do you know about such things that I don't? Are there LCMS Lutherans running around denying sola fide to the extent that they would hold denominational reigns?

I've only heard the show a couple of times, and thought it's great for what it is, but it simply sounds to me that the denomination is suffering from a lack of bedside manner.
