Good for you.  At least 7th DA try to go to church on the right day (and only missing it by, on average, 12 hours) and it's always fun to engage most of of the rest of the Christers on their not observing the Sabbath as directed by the Lord God Almighty, who even put in a Commandment on the topic, just to be clear.

Their 'deer in the headlights' stare when I point out 'Seventh Day' means precisely that, (without bothering to go into the even more Christer confusing sunset/midnight discrepancy, which generally makes their heads explode) the last day of the week, in other words, and is therefore THE day they should be keeping holy and not picking up sticks on, etc.  so as to honor the Sabbath and keep the God dude placated until some other trivial particle of outrage clouds his judgment and he goes off on another tirade/rant/pogrom/hissy fit.

Let's hear it for the Seventh Day Adventists, at least they're trying a squosh harder than the rest of the slacker Christians.

They also stick to the dietary restrictions and some sort of jewelry thing. But, they also allow the wearing of mixed fabrics and the SDA pastor that married my wife and I knew it was my second marriage...

Lutheran. Missouri Synod to be precise. Given that many Missouri Synod Lutherans don't consider even other Lutheran denominations to be Christian, it probably pays to be precise.

I get the impression Martin Luther would be excommunicated from all Lutheran schisms these days if he were still around.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

Actually if you add Baptists and Evangelical then my hypothesis seems to be supported, since Baptist and Evangelical are both fundamentalist leaning and RC is particularly conservative.

Baptist. More specifically, Independent Fundamental Baptist.

Compared to evangelical, RC is as liberal as a gay swinger club.

This is known as data mining.

What hypothesis is this? You haven't posited it.

Furthermore, while some baptist sects are certainly evangelical, others, such as the one I was raised in, regard faith as an intensely private thing. Conflating baptists and evangelicals seems to be only partially supported, to me.
