House Divided Over Interfaith - Lutheran minister suspended a.k.a Stupid Story of the Week...
A high-ranking Lutheran pastor in Brooklyn has been suspended from his duties and ordered to apologize to all Christians for participating with Muslims, Jews, Sikhs and Hindus in an interfaith service in Yankee Stadium after Sept. 11.
"To participate with pagans in an interfaith service and, additionally, to give the impression that there might be more than one God, is an extremely serious offense," the Rev. Wallace Schulz, the synod's national second vice president, wrote in the suspension letter.
The charges included "unionism" - mixing the beliefs of various Christian denominations - as well as "syncretism" - mixing Christian and non-Christian views. The synod constitution bars both.

All of which proves that no one religion has the monopoly on intolerance or stupidity. Like that really needed proving!?
