Thank you

...for that marvelous compilation of evidence that the takeover by an extreme faction is far from unanimous and that resistance to their unfortunate and wicked action is not going away just because they've played their little angrypants stampyfeet game.

Wow! Holy Update! Exactly what I expected, frankly!

The stars were lined up:
1) Bishops had a plan which worked for them
2) Bishops sought to sell their plan via a charade of global deep study
3) How deeply can anything be studied behind closed doors?
4) Western and Eastern USA conferences grew stronger on the issue due US court rulings
5) Southern and African conferences grew more staunch in opposition to liberal change
6) A 3 year build-up to GC2019 had expectations of progressives at critical mass.
7) The immediate defeat on Monday of the progressive’s and bishop’s best plan induced shock.
8) “Way Forward” was a joke and nobody’s laughin’!
So, now open rebellion by the progressive seminaries, churches and conferences is underway, which will likely be followed by JC rulings on unconstitutional grounds which will ignite fresh rebellion from traditional strongholds and everybody everywhere will screaming and blogging and rebelling and all the un-churched will be sayin’, “yep, that’s why I don’t go to the Methodist Church.” Somebody pay the jukebox for Tammy Winnett to sing “D-I-V-O-R-C-E” please!

Don't kick sleeping Bears

There has been this assumption that the bulk of the US would just go along with Discrimination. There was this assumption that the "traditional" values would win out if only they had teeth. That appears to be a naive assumption. The WCA will get their wish but like their counterparts in other denominations the size of the splinter group will be small and declining. They kicked the bear at the wrong time. God is a God of justice.
