Other article racist...

As a person of color, when I read your blog post "The Truth About the Future of the United Methodist Church" I simply could not believe the UMC gave you an actual forum to speak on their behalf. I've never seen so much bigotry about the African Church (and it's people) as expressed by you in that article.

They've made the rounds, that's for sure--certainly,we wonder what you think about Hispanic/Latino members of UMC.
