They don’t want only to be accepted in a congregation–that acceptance is reality throughout the nation–they want everyone to agree with their abolishment of the sin of homosexuality. Yet even that is not enough. They want to be universally praised for their courage and virtue in living the very sin they seek to abolish, and they want everyone else to pay for it.
Those with doctrinal arguments with a given denomination can easily seek another congregation, or another denomination. In so doing, they force nothing on others, they take none of their resources, and their fidelity in following God’s word is between them and God. But those who seek to transform a congregation, the beliefs of a denomination, or of Christianity, by force, will quickly discover the real meaning of disapproval, and like us all, will have to answer to God.
This is personal weakness and socialist politics. It’s not wise to try to include God in that.
Any church that openly embraces homosexuality is going to eventually fail. You cannot claim to be a house of God while simultaneously endorsing the very actions that God has called a sin. The Episcopal Church threw their lot in with homosexuality, and divorced themselves from God in order to do so. The Episcopal Church used to have quite a bit of clout in America. Nowadays, they're spending more to maintain empty churches than they are taking in through tithing. The Social Justice Warriors love the Episcopal Church now, but that does't translate into people actually going to church. The love of modern society is ephemeral and meaningless. The love of God is solid as a rock and unchanging, because God is unchanging.
When you divorce yourself from God in order to embrace modern society, the result is death. The Methodists just ducked that bullet, but if they don't remain strong they'll suffer the same fate.
The Catholic Church in America is also dying off for much the same reason. Vatican 2 essentially turned Catholic Churches into protestant ones, and if there's no real difference in how you treat God, people will just.... drift away. Couple that with an onslaught of effeminate gay priests, and you have a recipe for driving people out of the pews in droves. Men will not take their families to be lectured to by a lisping, limp-wristed Social Justice Warrior.
It should come as no surprise that the fastest growing areas in the Catholic Church, the ONLY areas that are experiencing growth, are the traditional orders. Masses in Latin. Nuns in habits. Love of God, clearly expressed and modern SJW morals rejected. There's a lesson there, if anyone cares to learn it.
