Finally! Common Sense From the Supremes!

It never made sense that local members PAID for the buildings, but the national church OWNED them. The Baptists and others had this right. Now, UM should have every church vote on leaving or staying and sort it out from there. No longer do we need postulating pontificating bishops delaying the inevitable.

I feel sure that my conservative local Texas UMC will vote to not associate with homosexual clergy or marriage. So, looks to me like the door might open to it leaving the liberal leaners and join the conservative. I look forward to returning.
