This looks like the real reason the West does not want to leave "As the weakest of all the jurisdictions, the West has been dependent on the connectional church for its survival. Loss of the connectional relationship will accelerate its decline."

Having defied the will of GC they are unwilling to cut the apron strings because they cannot stand on their own. The WJ wants to indulge itself without suffering any repercussions from its wayward behavior. Like a spoiled child that still needs Daddy's allowance.

Split faster please

The sooner progressives can separate from the hillbilly churches preaching hate theology, the better. With two separate denominational entities, both groups could brand themselves accurately. We are both sick of the actions of the other reflecting on us. This rain is too fierce for one umbrella.

"hillbilly churches preaching hate theology" So glad to see such a civil, grace-filled temperament devoid of any modicum of prejudice. Almost makes me want to separate from "apostate progressive churches preaching that sin is a fictional notion invented by homophobic, racist misogynists," except that I'd be engaging in the same self-righteous bigotry.

You’re not being inclusive. What about us Oklahoma oil and gas patch formerly poor white trailer park trash?! We’re rich itch. Now one third of our electricity comes from wind generation. We’d be happy to sell the Western Jurisdiction power but y’all gotta build pipelines

And for just how much longer...

Do you expect conservatives--who you view as set on destroying the denomination--are going to feel a need to continue to support the Western Jurisdiction? And for the record, form my perspective, it is your progressive viewpoint of what the church should be and your determination that we must all submit ourselves to your understanding that is destroying the denomination.

And just for the record, we are nowhere close to being on the same page when it comes to understanding what it means to be a Christian of the Wesleyan/Methodist persuasion.
