Saving Methodism

From the National Review
The struggle within reflects the struggles without.By Mark Hemingway
The United Methodist Church is holding its general conference in Fort Worth, Texas, this week. Every four years, a representative delegation of the largest Methodist denomination in the United States meets to hash out theological issues and resolve political debates. The General Conference is a source of much tension, because the United Methodists have for some time been on the verge of a split. Bible-oriented traditionalists find themselves opposing a leadership that is dragging the church in a direction defined by liberal political activism. The same schism is developing in a lot of Protestant church bodies.
