Your warning is excellent

As a "traditionalist"--I am so tired of the labels--I am a "compatablilist with limits". I accept that not everybody believes like me. However, I draw the line at sharing a church with progressives whose beliefs are so contradictory to mine that they feel led to actions that leave me feeling embarrassed that I am a United Methodist. This stunt has only exacerbated the divide--as has all the church brouhaha over immigration. Although the following does not speak directly to The UMC, it does speak to the divide over immigration between "traditionalists" and progressives within the UMC--I am so blasted tired of the labels!:
"In attempting to translate his prophecy to policy, Bp. Curry advocates for a perfectionist internationalism divorced from the realities of power, division, and sin that mark all human relations. In the “Reclaiming Jesus” manifesto that he and other liberal clergy unveiled during their White House vigil, Bp. Curry argues that “we should love and serve the world and all its inhabitants, rather than seek first narrow, nationalistic prerogatives.” The manifesto goes further by rejecting the Trump administration’s “America First” foreign policy as “theological heresy.” Although this policy is certainly open to criticism, especially regarding its seemingly ethnocentric understanding of Americanism, its implicit recognition of the responsibility of leaders to prioritize the protection of their national neighbors is hardly heresy."https://providencemag.com/2018/06/speaking-love-power-prophecy-policy-bishop-michael-curry/
