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....

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.
