I would have no problem if we had bishops in the LCMS - provided they actually are bishops -- men who attend to a pulpit and an altar weekly in addition to their administrative duties, not simply desk riders who presume to pontificate to men who hold the true Office which they have abandoned in order to be a functionary.

If no laymen can point to a bishop and say, "He is my pastor, he visits me when I am ill, he preaches to me and he gives me the Sacrament" than that bishop is one in name only.
