Phillips wrote: " I have a DREAM. That is, no more United Methodist Church." Phillips explains that he was formerly a member of the church, but he left because it's "the first Church of Karl Marx," and "little more than the "religious" arm of socialism."Is the enemy of my enemy my friend? Not in this case. The Methodist church is not my enemy. My enemy is hate and intolerance. The Tea Party is all about hate and intolerance. Judson Phillips and his teabaggers are my enemy. They may be your enemy too.
When a political organization attacks another organization because of its politics and calls for its dissolution as a tactic in the war for minds, what they are really doing is marshaling their minions to attack Methodists as if there are a social wrong to be erased at any cost. Labeling Methodists as an enemy to the Tea Party’s vision of America is telling your minions that the gloves are off. Nothing good can come from this.
I don’t care what other people believe. I care about what other people do. Methodists do good things. The United Methodist church falls to the left, which means they oppose the lunacy of the Tea Party. A question to my atheist readers, would you stand with the United Methodist church if the issues comes to a head? I would.
