You'll find this amusing: Jehovah's Witnesses were known as "colporteurs" in their early years.

John

Yeah, but Lutheran colporteurs? That's hard to imagine.

Bonnie

I'm guessing these are Missouri Synod Lutherans -- you know, the young-earth-creationist, ordination-of-women-is-contrary-to-scripture, the-Pope-is-the-Antichrist Lutherans, not the hot-dish Lake Wobegon Lutherans.

John

Oh, yeah - I forgot about them.

Those Missouri Synod folks are a pretty rough bunch. I guess this is the Lutheran version of the Gideons.
