Evil

“We are seeking to focus more closely on the values that are important to United Methodists — traditional, contextual and progressive,”

So, then, The Way Forward Commission admits that many to most of the UMC considers exclusion and scapegoating of innocent LGBT others a 'value' of the UMC? This is pure evil, folks.

I reject both proposals. At 57 years of age, after a virtual lifetime of rejection and scapegoating by the UMC, I REFUSE to be a member of any church that denies me basic human rights and privileges. If ANY portion of the UMC continues to deny me said rights, I REFUSE membership in any portion of it.

How dare you equate me with murderers and rapists? "Get behind me, Satan!"

Jim Winkler, general secretary, National Council of Churches USA (NCC Photo)"Public and sometimes violent acts of racism, white Christian nationalism, anti-immigrant attitudes and xenophobia, along with rising incidents of anti-Jewish, anti-Muslim and other forms of religious bigotry sometimes committed in the name of Christianity, have created an urgency for the churches and the broader culture to recognize the imperative of interreligious engagement for peace-making locally, nationally, and globally."

– United Methodist layman Jim Winkler, top executive of the National Council of Churches USA, in a speech to International Religious Freedom and Peace Conference sponsored by the Mother See of Holy Etchmidzian in Armenia.
