You'll get over it. Separation is underway now!

Some Methodist churches are already filing to leave. I am like many who have stopped attending and stopped giving. You should see our sanctuary - maybe at half of two years ago. Some conferences are tanking financially. Meanwhile, a few inner-circle types attend closed meetings at fancy places and say nothing afterward except some mushy-gushy churchy speak, "Oh, we respect each other and we feel so good!" Among we the pewsters, the differences are irreconcilable with those who would trash our Book of Discipline. We don't feel good. Some of us are angry, but I got over my anger when I left the Episcopal church over the same things years ago when the cancer of liberalism metastasized there. Now, really don't care....

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."
