Looks like the powers that be in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) have really stepped in it by canceling a very popular radio show called “Issues, Etc.” I must say that I never had the pleasure of listening in, but it sounds like I was missing out. Vieth is all over it at Cranach. There is even a WSJ write up today.

There are conspiracy theories abounding about the reasons for the cancellation. On its face, the initial explanation does not look very sound. But, stupid stuff happens without maniacal schemes all the time.

We will see. It does not look like the critics of the decision and the fans of the show will be going away anytime soon. Good for them. 

BTW, you can sign the online petition to keep Issues, Etc. on the air here
