Nope, I cannot stay

Bishop Karen: Kudos for your strength and desire to transform the UMC into a more loving, Christ-like church!

Unfortunately, I cannot stay. I've watched traditionalist Methodists verbally and spiritually abuse GLBT folk for almost fifty years. No more!! I'm developing an ulcer just reading the traditionalist comments here on this site.

The Traditional Viewpoint

The traditional Christian viewpoint is that all same-sex relationships are prohibited by God. The question becomes how do we lovingly help these to realize this is grievous sin and the way to a good relationship with God is to repent and turn from sin?

Trying removing the log from your own eye before attempting to remove the speck from your brother's.

Problem solved.

After a full week, not one positive or supportive comment on Bishop Oliveto!

I know thee was at least one negative comment, my own. I would bet there were others. You have every right as editor to "edit", but I reserve the right to recognize and comment on the truth. She is indeed "the straw that broke the camel's back."
