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 


Martin Luther King III (Wikipedia photo)"Yes, we should judge people by the content of the character and not the color of their skin — but that is when we have a true, just, humane society where there are no biases, where there is no racism, where there is no discrimination. Unfortunately, all of these things still exist."

— Martin Luther King III, oldest son of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King. Republican Texas lawmakers this year made it a priority to limit how racism and current events are taught in school. King calls their legislative moves “a literal effort to whitewash history." Reported in the Texas Tribune.
