Exodus is Correct

The author is correct. There will be a mass exodus if the UMC continues to invest itself in hatred against the GLBT community.

Some have already repudiated their UMC baptismal covenants and walked away in disgust. More will do so.

Unfortunately...

You are most likely correct The right-wing extremists overcome by their prejudices mostly left the UMC decades ago. Catering the prejudices of few who remain provides no benefit.

Notable Quotes   


     "Fundamentalist Christians have moved the theological needle so far to the right that the Gospel is said by them to be a 'progressive agenda.' It's not – it's the Gospel. We must keep preaching Jesus' message of the Kingdom of God (over against the kingdoms of this world) rooted in love (not legalism) and aimed toward reconciliation (not division). The Pharisees alleged Jesus' message was a 'liberal agenda.' It wasn't – it was the Gospel."

– The Rev. Dr. Steve Harper in a Facebook post.
