Another Protestant denomination falls to the liberal left. This time it is the United Methodist Church. The Wesley brothers have to be spinning in their graves, one clockwise the other counterclockwise. Even though the conservatives won a vote to uphold the church's stance against ordaining gay clergy and performing same sex weddings, they are the ones who must leave the church and start a new denomination. This split has been a long time coming and is the result of conservatives trying to save the church from within, hampered by wishy washy moderates choosing appeasement over biblical truth. What can we learn from this? Theology matters. Once you allow the camel's nose into the tent, sooner or later the camel comes in, and very soon you are sleeping with fleas.
