“I served as ecumenical officer of the Episcopal Church and have been to a number of General Conferences. I’ve told Episcopal Church colleagues that what was coming in the United Methodist Church would make the conflict the Episcopal Church had over Gene Robinson look like the Council of Nicaea by comparison. I knew it would be bad. But the Special General Conference was even worse than I imagined, with a level of hurt, anger, vitriol, and despair that was truly hard to witness. Many people are shocked, angry, hurt, and feel abandoned by their church.
