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   


       "When Jesus defined his ministry, he made liberating the captive a focus of his message. Jesus’ gospel is for slave and for the free (Galatians 3:28). It is meant to have a component of liberation. The gospel calls us to advocate for a more just world–to be a voice for the voiceless."

– John D. Barry, a nonprofit CEO, Bible scholar, and pastor, writing in the Jan. 9 issue of Red Letter Christians' Wake Up newsletter.
