My dh and I are both roman catholics. We do not agree with many of the things that are taught thru the church. I have heard that Lutherans do some of the common things as catholics do, such as, baptize, communion, etc....but do not have as many of the man made rules and are more accepting... So, we were considering switching, but I don't know much about the beliefs...anyone?
btw, if there is any bashing or trying to tell me I am wrong in any such way, your reply will be ignored. I am looking simply for information, not an argument. thanks!

Catholic worship Saints. Lutherans do not.
Catholics don't worship saints. Both Catholics and Lutherans believe in the idea of saints in heaven. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS) both have a calendar of saints. (So OP you should be aware that there are different types of Lutheran churches - some more strict than others).
The big difference between the Catholic Church and most other Protestant churches is the idea of "sola scriptura" that the bible is the only source of truth for Christians. Catholics believe that three things - the bible, Sacred Tradition (the oral teachings passed on by the apostles) and the Magisterium (the teaching authority of the church) all work together to ensure sound doctrine.
