Travesty of Justice

'“If a Traditionalist Plan with legislation is not included in the bishops' report, it can still be submitted separately through this process,” Lambrecht wrote in an essay for Good News, an unofficial advocacy group he serves as vice president. He was also a Way Forward Commission member.
This ensures that a plan that evangelicals can support will be considered by the delegates at General Conference,” he said.'

And just where, oh where, is the plan all progressives - including all GLBT members - can support? Has no one noticed that all of the proposed plans are skewed towards the conservatives?

A travesty of justice.

Plan

I am sure someone will come up with a plan that fully endorses same sex marriage and mandates same sex marriages in all our churches and directs pastors to perform them when asked. I believe such a plan out to be put forward for a vote but probably not for the same reasons as you.

Notable Quotes


"So much of American Christianity is tightly wrapped up with control, nationalism, xenophobia, and racism that folks are walking away .... So conservatives hunker down and shut out questions and despise doubt. What is actually needed are faith communities that provide safe space for questions and doubt, that recognize them as an important part of growth, that show love no matter what."

– The Rev. Charlie Baber, "Wesley Bros: Old Arguments, Same Story"
