Former United Methodist pastor James Gibson, who once worked toward reform of the United Methodist Church, but later decided such reform couldn’t be done to his liking and left the church altogether, now wants to burn down the house he abandoned while others are still in it. How charitable!
In American politics, who are often the most rabid Democrats? Former Republicans. Who are often the most rabid Republicans? Former Democrats. Love hath no fury like a man scorned!
A few times in the local church I’ve seen people lose on their issue and then try to sabatoge the entire church. Rev. Gibson is no longer a United Methodist. Fine. But I don’t see that it is his place advising those of us remaining in the United Methodist Church to disband. He didn’t get his way, or at least fast enough and now he wants to undermine what he is no longer part of. What a class act!
