Respect please?

Why can't progressive believers respect the decision that was legitimately decided? I understand that they don't agree, but i assume that progressives would be demanding that traditional believers get with the new program or leave if the decision had gone the other way. Why do progressives expect the majority to provide the framework for new denomination for them instead of taking the responsibility themselves?

Good question

And the answer is in their feeling of superiority which results in an unwillingness to abide by the designated decision-making processes of the church. If the system does not produce the answer they perceive as correct, then the system is not functioning correctly although it is doing exactly what it was designed to do. The best description I have read of how they operate is "selective disobedience based on conscience"--meaning the system works just fine on some issues but not others. Their convoluted logic defies understanding. Post GC2019 they have finally succeeded in breaking the system--there is now absolutely no way forward together. But then, they were never really interested in "unity" they were only interested in getting their own way and it does not matter what the cost is.
