Exodus is Correct

The author is correct. There will be a mass exodus if the UMC continues to invest itself in hatred against the GLBT community.

Some have already repudiated their UMC baptismal covenants and walked away in disgust. More will do so.

Unfortunately...

You are most likely correct The right-wing extremists overcome by their prejudices mostly left the UMC decades ago. Catering the prejudices of few who remain provides no benefit.

Notable Quotes 


"... Sometimes the gospel confronts us with values that are counter to a white supremacist, nationalist, militaristic, xenophobic, homophobic, misogynistic, anti-environmental, or ableist agenda. Even without mentioning a specific president, a sermon that preaches the values of welcoming the immigrant, obeying the commandment not to murder, lifting up 'the least of these,' or valuing black lives can be mistakenly perceived as promoting a 'liberal agenda.'"

– Leah D. Schade, "What to Do When Parisioners Leave ... Because of Politics."
