more targeted divestment may be appropriate

Progressive churches should consider withholding payment of only one apportionment fund, the "General Administration Fund". This is the fund that pays for General Conference and hands checks to the very delegates voting to exclude LGBT people from the church. If other apportioned funds are paid in full at the same time it would send a clear message that the mission of the church is supported but the decisions of General Conference are not. Why should progressives fund their own victimization?
