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   


     "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.
