Keep that Law off my lifestyle, you legalist!

It is disheartening that some confessional Lutheran leaders, those who would gladly call themselves pro-life, would also happily call folks who have expressed reasoned, biblical, and historical concerns about contraception as wackos. At the very least, genuinely pro-life concerns about the abortifacient nature of some of the more popular forms of contraception should be honestly considered.

Such volatile responses from our "antinomian Lutheran culture" have begun to sound strikingly similar to the specious "keep your laws off my body" cliches of the pro-abortion movement: Keep the Law off of my postmodern Lutheran lifestyle, you legalist!

The 'pro-life' stance of the LCMS Sanctity of Human Life Committee begins to ring hollow.
