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!"

"When one’s power, authority, or position is derived from demarcating and defending orthodoxy, then singling out more heretics is always necessary. The status one holds depends on maintaining loyalties and passing purity tests."

"The choice before every theologian and church leader is clear: either the tradition of the church tells us who we are, or we read the Scriptures in light of who we understand ourselves to be."

– Robert A. Hunt, Perkins School of Theology, in a Facebook post on Catholic bishops proposing to deny communion to President Joe Biden over his support for legal abortion.
