Travesty of Justice

'“If a Traditionalist Plan with legislation is not included in the bishops' report, it can still be submitted separately through this process,” Lambrecht wrote in an essay for Good News, an unofficial advocacy group he serves as vice president. He was also a Way Forward Commission member.
This ensures that a plan that evangelicals can support will be considered by the delegates at General Conference,” he said.'

And just where, oh where, is the plan all progressives - including all GLBT members - can support? Has no one noticed that all of the proposed plans are skewed towards the conservatives?

A travesty of justice.

Plan

I am sure someone will come up with a plan that fully endorses same sex marriage and mandates same sex marriages in all our churches and directs pastors to perform them when asked. I believe such a plan out to be put forward for a vote but probably not for the same reasons as you.

Notable Quotes   


   Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove "When Jesus said, 'I have come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly' in John 10:10, he wasn’t thinking about a victory for those who have used religion to fight back against the gains of the civil rights movement. Jesus was inviting all of us to work together for the vision at the heart of that movement — a beloved community where all people created in God’s image can thrive."

– Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, writing in "The Evangelical Case Against Judge Kavanaugh" in the Sept. 3 New York Times.
