Okay, I'm done.

The moderator of the United Methodist Clergy group on Facebook just posted in a response to a flaming argument in that group,
The anti-gays need this forum so they can feel like they are winning the online world argument even as their beliefs fall away in the real world. It was the same with those who opposed women's ordination and the inclusion of black ministers. My only work is to speed up the process.
I find that extraordinarily offensive. And it made me realize, I certainly don't need this forum. So, I have terminated my membership in that group. I'm not posting this there, since that would just keep the ruckus going -- besides looking like I felt like I needed to express it in that group. I'm just done, with all of them, pro- or anti- as the case may be. At least 75% of all the comments I read on that group, on all sides, make me mad. I'm glad I didn't know any of them when I was coming into the clergy, because I either wouldn't have entered the calling at all, or at least wouldn't have chosen to associate with this bunch.

What an embarrassment we are, to be sure.
