Travesty of Justice

'“If a Traditionalist Plan with legislation is not included in the bishops' report, it can still be submitted separately through this process,” Lambrecht wrote in an essay for Good News, an unofficial advocacy group he serves as vice president. He was also a Way Forward Commission member.
This ensures that a plan that evangelicals can support will be considered by the delegates at General Conference,” he said.'

And just where, oh where, is the plan all progressives - including all GLBT members - can support? Has no one noticed that all of the proposed plans are skewed towards the conservatives?

A travesty of justice.

Plan

I am sure someone will come up with a plan that fully endorses same sex marriage and mandates same sex marriages in all our churches and directs pastors to perform them when asked. I believe such a plan out to be put forward for a vote but probably not for the same reasons as you.

Notable Quotes   


   "My wish is that, one day, formal education will pay attention to the education of the heart, teaching love, compassion, justice, forgiveness, mindfulness, tolerance and peace. This education is necessary, from kindergarten to secondary schools and universities. I mean social, emotional and ethical learning. We need a worldwide initiative for educating heart and mind in this modern age."

 – HH The Dalai Lama, interviewed in the Los Angeles Times


    "[Author Vincent Strudwick] reimagines church as catalyst, transfiguring an egoistic society back to an altruistic one, celebrating a God who is as weak as water, but as irresistible as a river. Decisions should be taken at the lowest possible grass-roots level, dialogue superseding proclamation, and embodiment replacing autocracy.

– The Rt. Rev. David Wilbourne, Assistant Bishop of Llandaff in the Church of England, reviewing Strudwick's book: "The Naked God: Wrestling for a Grace-ful Humanity" in Church Times.
