It's Time to Leave, Progressives

Let us out of here. We cannot continue to live in a UMC where hatred is allowed, let alone encouraged, to prevail in even one conference.

The Way Forward Commission and COB have left us without options. Let us out!

the emerging train wreck

I hope progressive Methodists will have discussed these three options and are developing a bail out strategy. Option 1 (leading choice of conervatives) will necessitate leaving..or capitulating. Option 3 will require reforming an inclusive church. Either way it is time to reorganize or preoare for unconditional surrender.

Unfortunately Not

What I am hearing from my local progressive clergy is, "We are fighting but, if we cannot get what we want, oh well. We will some day." In other words, they are prepared to surrender.

I will never surrender.

    Bishop Kenneth L. Carder "Those who use hate-filled tactics to 'defend truth'" whether in politics or religion, betray the essence of truth. Truth and love are conjoined twins giving life to one another. They are heart and brain working in concert; severing them means death to both."
