Excuse me, Dr. Banks, we “traditionalists” are feeding and caring for those less fortunate than we

Our church is a leader in generosity using our money, our personal taxes (federal, state and local) include a significant portion for care of others, and many of us do even more through civic organizations like the Salvation Army, Star of Hope, etc ad nauseum. I deeply resent your insinuation that traditionalists like me care not for others.
.
We also care about the moral fabric of our country which unravels a little more every day. We are shocked that common sense standards like only men in mens rooms and only women in women’s rooms are being challenged in court and by elected officials. We who are fathers of daughters are especially angry at the lack of caring by some in power for the safety of our little girls.
.
And, while we really don’t care what people do in their bedrooms, back seats or hot tubs, we will not accept those folks as our moral leaders. A “trans” leading MYF or preaching to our youth? You’re kidding, right?
.
We old traditionalists are multi-tasking masters; we can help those less fortunate with dazzling generosity even while condemning the moral degradation which runs rampant via today’s liberalism. And still have time for golf!

Notable Quotes   


    "The Judicial Council’s work compellingly shows that our denomination is in schism and has been for some years and if we really want to heal this schism, then (dare I say it?) we have to back up and try our best to answer basic questions. What is it, actually, that unites United Methodists? ...  If doctrines do not define church, then we don’t know our identity or mission. If we don’t know our identity and mission, we will never be able to agree on what constitutes appropriate or inappropriate behavior and we will never be able to exercise meaningful accountability."

– The Rev. Steven Rankin, in a post "Judicial Council Proves We're Already in Schism"
