Conservative-Liberal

Legislation (at least in the way we practice it), nullifies the possibility for the lofty and faithful thoughts of the author re. Methodism as the middle way, love as the measure of all things and the catholic spirit as our foundation. These principles cannot live in an environment predicated on winners-losers and rule of the majority.

The use of the word love at the moment of destroying what is precious to our sister or brother does not create its reality, it only reinforces our illusions.
