A Very Good Question
"What I find hard to understand is why we Lutherans are quick to attack this sort of legalism in the evangelicals/Baptists/etc. (e.g. all alcohol is sinful, women wearing pants is a sin, everyone must give exactly 10% of their income to the church or face divine wrath, and on and on) but we excuse it in the Orthodox just because they have a pretty liturgy and wear glittery vestments.
Why the double standard?"
