Ludicrous and Asinine: What Could Possibly Take TEN DAYS!?

“Like everything else in our lives, the General Conference will not meet. Stay healthy and we’ll get back to you…” That could have been the common sense, pontification-free announcement, but, oh no, Meth-management could not order breakfast without a labyrinth of pondered pontifications.
Yet, the most outrageous information in Ms. Hahn’s lengthy “Conference cancelled – will advise” article is the revelation that it was to last TEN DAYS! We’re talking about a denomination formed roughly 200 years ago to worship, celebrate and expand upon the life and teachings of one man who walked and taught 2,000 years ago. A denomination which is based entirely on one book, plus one organization manual. And so, most reverend hierarchy schedules TEN DAYS to work on new details? Seriously? Not that the big issues haven’t been discussed, debated, dissected, delineated, and disseminated ad nauseum over two generations, but gee whiz, what could possibly take TEN DAYS?
And what about the cost of TEN DAYS in Minneapolis? 1000 delegates, bishops and staff @ avg. $100 a day for TEN DAYS = ONE MILLION BUCKS! Double that to cover convention center rental, labor, airfare, decorations, AV, wi-fi, and, of course, truckloads of paper for the copy machines! Show me the money!
The homosexual issue might get the most press, but there is a plethora of reasons for humble people who just want to go to church to support reducing the overhead of the UMC… And many are voting early with their feet.
