Disruption? I don't think so

I have been active and outspoken in this struggle to end discrimination due to "incompatible" sexual orientation in the UMC, but IMO, the time for disruption at General Conference is over. It is no longer helping to move the moderates--surely just the opposite. The chalice-breaking at the 2004 GC was very counter productive, and although the disruptive witness at the 2012 conference might have been a little more effective, I think it's time for passionate, intense bridge building, supported by targeted witness.
