No, he wasn't right

The right-wing faction within the UMC a sad, scared caucus dedicated to, in William F. Buckle y'all immortal phrase, "standing athwart history yelling "Stop!" In that, they have spectacularly failed, as was inevitable. And in the process damaged the UMC as an institution, as more have left out of revulsion at the conflict than could ever be possible of the handful turning to politicized mega churches which are stand alone personal fiefdoms of activist preachers or associated with right-wing denominations like the Southern Baptists. And yet, the liberal impulses of the church is little slowed by feeble raised hands which cannot stop our love- love which in Warren Zevon's song "Love Conquers All," "can't be started like a car, can't be stopped with a gun."
