"More than 600 United Methodist clergy and laity say they are bringing church law charges against U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a fellow United Methodist, over a zero tolerance U.S. immigration policy — a policy that includes separating children from parents apprehended for crossing into the U.S. illegally."

The rest of the story:

I find it fascinating that the UMC, known for being a big tent, is taking such a public stand.

NOTE: I'm posting this to talk about the religious/faith aspects of the story. PLEASE no partisan politics!!!!

I would be curious to know if there have been other cases of Methodist discipline being applied.

Not to my recollection - at least, not to that degree of either scope or publicity. (you may recall that I was raised Methodist, and any news about that denomination gets my attention.)

This has me much more concerned, for reasons that are obvious to those who know me: https://religionnews.com/2018/06/13/cat ... ife-issue/

Just as Episcopal news gets my attention.

From a religious point of view, I will say that Sessions' exegesis of Romans 13 is wrong. Just ask the Australian priests who may be forced to go to jail rather than reveal confessions.

And that said, then this: https://babylonbee.com/news/report-demo ... the-bible/
