    Yes, I meant the RCC hierarchy. I usually say "hierarchy" in such discussions, but regrettably slipped on this occasion.

    I am not surprised to hear that fundies still hate Catholics. I have seen many times evangelicals write on the Internet about Catholics distinguishing them from "Christians". To someone raised Eastern Orthodox, that is totally bizarre.

    I was horrified to learn of the Missouri Synod. It is utterly un-Lutheran and un-German in my view, and I agree that it is just as bad as the SBC. I went to a Missouri Synod service once out of curiosity: I could not detect any joyfulness or Christian spirit there at all: and I could find those in a local evangelical/nondenominational church in the area whose worship I attended a couple of times, also out of curiosity.

    So when I say Lutheranism, I mean ELCA, which is about as liberal as the American Episcopal church, with which it is in communion. :-) Needless to say, the Lutheran and the Anglican churches are the branches of Protestantism closest to Catholicism. :-)

    Christian fundamentalism is a very weird, home-grown American invention, like Mormonism and Scientology.

    American exceptionalism is America's road to perdition.
