I know the answer

to question #1, but not any of the others. The answer is raw, naked power. "Holiness" as a mask for oppression is something anyone can see. The idea the UMC right wing could join the Free Methodists, Nazarenes, etc. is a great point. Of course, as IRD is involved, power is the only game they play. You make many excellent points. Thanks for the article.

I can sure see a schism of right wing UMCers developing quickly into a cult that'd outlaw female clergy, and developed a cult of personality around slick-haired preachers.
