how do Poles view Lutheranism ?

It was surprising to learn that there really are Lutherans in Poland. And they are Polish-speaking and not the German minority.

But how does the "average" Catholic Pole view Lutherans and Lutheranism ?
Is it seen as "German" religion ? Does it differ much from German or Nordic lutheranism, if you happen to know about them ?

I am born and baptized to Lutheranism (even tho' I am not practicing) and I see it as very "grey" and "lazy" religion ? The ceremonies are very simple (the greyness) and there isn't much requirements for the believer (you just need to *believe*) and church seems to adapt to people than vice versa (and that eats the essence of religion, I think)

Ok, what do you think about it? Is it "heresy" ?

I've got no idea about It. We don't have here any problems between different branches of Christians.
