Evil

“We are seeking to focus more closely on the values that are important to United Methodists — traditional, contextual and progressive,”

So, then, The Way Forward Commission admits that many to most of the UMC considers exclusion and scapegoating of innocent LGBT others a 'value' of the UMC? This is pure evil, folks.

I reject both proposals. At 57 years of age, after a virtual lifetime of rejection and scapegoating by the UMC, I REFUSE to be a member of any church that denies me basic human rights and privileges. If ANY portion of the UMC continues to deny me said rights, I REFUSE membership in any portion of it.

How dare you equate me with murderers and rapists? "Get behind me, Satan!"

Notable Quotes   


    "The Judicial Council’s work compellingly shows that our denomination is in schism and has been for some years and if we really want to heal this schism, then (dare I say it?) we have to back up and try our best to answer basic questions. What is it, actually, that unites United Methodists? ...  If doctrines do not define church, then we don’t know our identity or mission. If we don’t know our identity and mission, we will never be able to agree on what constitutes appropriate or inappropriate behavior and we will never be able to exercise meaningful accountability."

– The Rev. Steven Rankin, in a post "Judicial Council Proves We're Already in Schism"
