Looks like the N. Ga. Conf. and its bishop are going to have to face Bethel UMC in the court of justice rather than the court of public opinion. Given recent decisions for the Episcopal Church in Texas, the coming decision for the buildings and properties of Bethel UMC is in doubt. The Texas decision was rendered in spite of assumptions to the contrary by the Episcopal Church ... supported by UMC.
