  1. this is such a bogus list, Steve Jobs was a practicing Buddhist, and to include Marx makes the list more satire than fact

  2. Since they were raised Lutheran, it could be considered a common denominator for the group, yes? Unless you can find something else to tie these folks together.

  3. I was raised Lutheran and still consider myself one; however, my dad was Dutch Mennonite, I was saved at a non-denominational Dutch Reform church in Chicago, baptized and spirit-filled in a United Methodist church in College Station, Texas, and currently attending a fundamental, non-denominational charismatic mega-church in DFW. I'm kind of a religious mutt.

  4. I feel cheated by this one. So what if they were all Lutheran, or, following comments, raised in Lutheran families? You might as well say "They're all human" or "They are all less than 500 years old". It defeats the purpose of a "what do these have in common" list if the answer is something as mundane and commonplace as being Lutheran.

  5. My mom was a non practicing Lutheran, my dad an ex Catholic and I'm atheist. Could be on the list too?
