Is There Any #UMC Accountability for Resisting Injustice and Oppression?

Fifty years ago, liberals went to church. Now they’re dropping out like flies. Because church has become a place for conservative middle-class families who want to get back to the good old days of the Eisenhower era. We’ve been living through several decades of backlash against the perceived excesses of the Civil Rights Movement, led primarily by the evangelical tribe I was born into.

Do you have some data that supports what you say here? I am a conservative who can barely remember Eisenhower. I have no longing for those days. I might say that liberals are looking for the good old days of fighting against racial injustice and have latched onto gay rights as a close enough substitute. Must there always be a social cause to keep us motivated?
