CLUB 444: …and from the WCA….

June 10, 2022

The last straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back came this past Tuesday evening, June 7, 2022, when progressive and centrist signers and endorsers of the Protocol of Reconciliation and Grace Through Separation withdrew their support for it. They did so through publishing a website where they abandoned the hard work and hopes of so many. That didn’t prevent them, however, from picking and choosing where they think The United Methodist Church’s Book of Discipline should be followed and where it could be conveniently ignored. Their list even includes their take on how theologically conservative churches should be allowed to depart using the extremely expensive and punitive process enumerated in paragraph 2553. Their website was published within a few hours notice to the traditionalist organizations that endorsed and negotiated the Protocol, and there certainly was no consultation. This is duplicitous and done with bad faith. It also makes a mockery of the Book of Discipline, which is our connectional foundation.
