Not the same Lutherans

The BTK serial killer was arrested this weekend near Wichita, KS. Mr. Rah brought it to my attention that the BTK was a leader in his Lutheran church. I started looking into it, and almost every news story online mentioned the fact that Mr. Rader, the BTK killer, was active in his Lutheran church. Mr. Rah and I did a little research into all this. Mr. Rader lives in Park City, KS and is a member of Christ Lutheran Church. While there are at least three Lutheran churches within 30 miles of Park City, I am almost certain that the church Mr. Rader attends is Christ Lutheran Church in Wichita, KS.

Christ Lutheran Church in Wichita, KS is an ELCA church -- not to be confused with the Banshee's version of Lutheran or Mimi's version of Lutheran.
