The Lutheran Street

In other news, Iowahawk has gone and done another of his Lutheran Street pieces; Midwest Lutherans Largely Reject Violence. I often do not understand anything Iowahawk puts on his website, but he has two series I adore. One was a series of guest posts from al-Zarqawi (now, clearly, defunct). The other is a series of wacked-out news reports on the world of Lutheran radical extremism, done in the style of mainstream-media magazine reporting.

If you ever wondered--why do only Arabs have a 'street'? If you ever wondered--how do Lutherans really feel about world domination? If you ever wondered--why do Lutherans hate Presbyterians? Or maybe even if you didn''s just insanely funny to watch one man parody Time Magazine, while making fun of his own people in a gentle, loving way. ("God is pretty great, you betcha," declares one midwestern extremist early on in the series.)

"Taken as a whole, the results show that Midwest Lutherans emphatically support a moderate, mainstream path to world domination," said Kohut. "These folks are well-assimilated into the broad fabric of American society, and unless you are Presbyterian, there is probably very little here to cause concern."
