1. I am convinced, after last night, that 1/3 of the country could easily kill another 1/3 of the country while the remaining 1/3 watches silently.
2. I am also persuaded the 1/3 doing the killing would have no moral or ethical problem with genocide if they believed it was sanctioned in the name of the Judeo-Christian God.
3. I am concerned.
4. At this rate, it doesn’t matter what the United Methodist Church does about human sexuality at the special General Conference of the regular General Conference. We won’t have to worry about the church splitting; one third of us might be dead. The remnant, meeting somewhere in secret, will put together a working group on post-genocidal America. We might expect a report in 2024.
5. The silent 1/3 thinks I’m joking.
