The Withdrawal Methodist

Cheers to North Carolina minister Howard Hanger, who took a stand for equal rights by resigning his ordination.

From his statement:

"This is an extremely difficult decision. Both my father and grandfather were Methodist ministers, one of whom left the church over his opposition to war and the other who got into trouble with the church over his pro-civil rights stance."

[. . .]

"My hope and prayer is that United Methodists and all other denominations may soon realize that love is love; and what our world needs now is love, not discrimination."

Spoken like a true freethinker…
