Defining others out

A +1 Conference with limited voting rights suggests the are intended to be a perpetual minority that will have limited voting rights and interaction to conference with the Big 5. A "center" allied with a "right" to define who a "left" is seems contrary to good process of identity development. How such helps, long-term, seems extremely problematic. This is parent to child stuff rather than partners in mission.

Clarification

Chris Ritter is not associated with the UM Centrist Movement in any way. This is a separate movement and I understand that they quite strongly opposed to the plan being described in this post. Thanks again for re-posting and for UM Insight's continued interest in the future of our denomination.
