“Conservatives” wail and lament
Methodist “conservatives” are wailing and gnashing teeth over the retired Methodist Bishop who witnessed a gay couple marry. They are ringing their hands over the credibility of their church. At a recent meeting of the UMC Council of Bishops an Episcopal bishop, whom they had invited to address them,had the unenviable and impossible task of defending the Episcopal Church from charges that it had abandoned “orthodox Christian” doctrine and discipline.
But it must be noted that what the Episcopal, or Methodist for that matter, Church, let alone the Roman or Orthodox, and most certainly not the counterfeit “evangelical” wing of American Protestantism says is as about relevant as the No Nothing Party especially to anyone under 35! Spong is a celeb and good American entrepreneur like his “orthodox’ carnie barkers, such as the Family Research Council (seriously, research,) on the right; neither are important or respected by anyone who takes faith as a serious matter rather than a theocratic mantra!
