For the second time in a few weeks the LCMS election has made it on to the liberal Huffington Post blog. Both times the Huffington Post picked up articles written for the St. Louis Post Dispatch by Tim Townsend.
Townsend’s Harrison victory story was republished this morning on the Huffington Post and was titled “Conservative Insurgency Topples Missouri Synod President.” Your editor was quoted toward the end of the story.
Your editor, and even better yet, BJS itself was cited in the article a few weeks ago that forcused on the nomination totals. It was titled “Tea Party Insurgence Ripples Through Missouri Synod Election.”
The Huffington Post is most likely interested in all of this because they like to document and track the activity of conservatism. We are interested in President Harrison’s victory because of our desire to promote the pure teaching of the Scriptures and Lutheran Confessions.
