Yep MA - And these are Mr Magoo's people no less - Not "loony leftists".

More than 600 United Methodist clergy and laypeople have signed a formal denominational complaint against fellow United Methodist Attorney General Jeff Sessions, condemning his role in the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy of separating children from their parents along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The charges include child abuse, immorality, racial discrimination and “dissemination of doctrines contrary to the standards of doctrine of the United Methodist Church.”

The complaint was sent Monday afternoon to two churches, one in Alabama and the other in the Washington, D.C., suburbs, said to be affiliated with the chief lawyer of the U.S. government. ​

I grew up attending a United Methodist Church. They have become a far more liberal organization over the years. When I was a child, black people were not allowed to attend our church. Of course, back in those days, they weren't allowed to attend the carnival or community recreation center except on Wednesday, and they were never allowed into a public swimming pool. A local paper mill that employed about 2500 people back then only had 2 black employees, and they were both janitors.

Today, that same church that I attended as a child has a female pastor. They have evolved beyond the likes of Jeff Sessions. He needs to find a new church. Maybe Westboro Baptist?

The Methodist Church I attended last year was Ginghamsburg. It grew from a medium Church to a new one with at least 5 Services. Under Mike Slaughter it has become huge. Mike is retiring but he will not go away. Last time I was there-a Lady Pastor preached. Other women could relate. They have problem solvers for all human weakness. I wish it was not so far.

The Son of the Friend I was with would not go back because they,” Had a woman Preacher.!”

Well, in all honesty, Christian scripture forbids female church leadership in no uncertain terms, so it is somewhat hypocritical to allow female pastors. It doesn't bother me, any more than does the scriptural prohibition against eating pork, shrimp or catfish, since I no longer practice Christianity.

Since I follow the New Testament those old rules do not apply to me. But then I am not an Evangelical either.:)
