This is getting to a touch point

The increased militancy and desperation on the part of the forces of repression seem at first glance, comical, the fin-de-siècle predicted to end "not with a bang, but with a whimper" in T.S. Elliott's immortal phrase. But this slew of articles leading up to General Conference seem to intimate a desire to at least attempt to go out with a bang if that's at all possible. Like the bathroom wars in North Carolina this has all the makings of a farce. If the right-wing winds up in sole possession of the UMC, it'll be kind of like finding a black banana on the shelf that's too gnarly to even make banana bread with.
