United Methodist Megachurch Could Leave UMC Over Church’s Stance on Gay Marriage

Published

on

A predominantly African American megachurch in Texas is considering leaving the United Methodist denomination over the church’s increasing capitulation to the gay marriage agenda.

“Windsor Village United Methodist Church of Houston, which has approximately 18,000 members, is undergoing a process of prayer and discernment for possibly leaving the UMC,” according to the Christian Post.

The UMC is in the midst of a raging debate over homosexuality and same-sex marriage. It is considering changes to its Book of Discipline, which says homosexuality is “incompatible with Christian teaching.” The church will hold a special “General Conference” in February to hash out the issue.

Floyd LeBlanc, chairman of the Windsor Village Staff-Parish Relations Committee said that the church is holding a series of prayer gatherings and fasting once a week as part of its decision making process.

“We have invited guest speakers to bless, prepare and sustain us during this time. Bishop Tudor Bismark (from Africa) was with us recently and we look forward to a visit from Bishop Raphael Green (from Missouri),” he reportedly said.

Last November, the UMC ordained its first transgender pastor.

The Telegraph reported:

“A university chaplain has become the Methodist Church’s first transgender minister after hiding her true identity for more than four decades.

Joy Everingham, 46, spent years secretly applying lipstick and wearing women’s clothes before finally coming out three years ago.

She first announced that she planned to transition while training to become a minister, before becoming ordained last summer. It is the first time a transgender person has been appointed as a minister in the church with the church’s knowledge.

The mother-of-two from Canterbury, Kent, says she first knew she was different aged just five, and ‘didn’t fit in with everyone else’.”

Telegraph Passage Ends. 

Bishop Scott Jones has had conversations with Windsor Village Lead Pastor Kirbyjon H. Caldwell about the church’s potential departure from the denomination. He said that all of the church’s property would belong to the UMC should they decide to leave.

Lauren Witzke Clashes With Richard Grenell Over His Promotion of Transgenderism; Con Inc. Wants Her Cancelled!

What happened to “America Uncancelled?”

Published

on

Where do we draw the line between what is ‘conservative’ and what isn’t ‘conservative’? Well, for many establishment Republicans, also known by many as ‘Conservative Inc.’, the only two distinctions between right and left are free markets and principled constitutionalism. However, traditionally, conservatives have sought to protect Christian and American values. Things like preserving the family, promoting law and order, and protecting the sacred tradition of marriage between a man and a woman had been the backbone of the conservative movement. It seems as if nowadays, these values have been completely thrown aside. Big League Politics has previously reported on establishment conservative organizations, such as Turning Point USA, pushing transgenderism and homosexuality on Republican college students.

Rather than bend the knee to the left, as most Republicans do, social conservatives like Lauren Witzke have decided to take a stand and say: “Enough is enough.” Witzke, who is the Spokeswoman for Hold the Line PAC, recently clashed on Twitter with former Trump Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, who is openly a homosexual.

The whole debacle began when Lauren Witzke replied to a tweet by Grenell, praising the GOP for its inclusivity to transgender people, referring to transgenderism as ‘mental illness’:

Grenell tried to downplay Witzke’s take, effectively saying that celebrating transexuality is a celebration of God, in which Witzke replied that it was instead demonic:

Grenell rebuttaled, asking Witzke if she was ok with welcoming gay conservatives into the GOP. Witzke responded saying no, and that it would be a useless act of appeasement.

Seemingly in an act to publicize Witzke’s wrongthink, Grenell then quote-tweeted her and asked her the same question once more:

True to her nature, Witzke sarcastically mocked Grenell for repeating himself and solidified her stance:

The two would both go on to throw several more jabs at each other on Twitter, but you get the point. Richard Grenell believes that the Republican Party should have no moral stance on any issue, while Lauren Witzke believes that the GOP should strictly conserve our Christian values.

We reached out to Lauren on Twitter for a quick statement and she gave us this:

“The Republican Party was founded on Christian Conservative Principles. We believe in the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage between a man and a women. Gay fiscal conservatives are more than welcome to vote for us, but should have no place in leadership to advocate for their progressive ideals.”

Lauren Witzke previously ran as the Republican nominee for US Senate in Delaware, but lost to the incumbent Democrat Senator Chris Coons. Despite living in a blue state and running on a nationalist platform, Witzke impressively secured roughly double the votes as her Republican predecessor in 2014.

After the lengthy and, as of right now, still ongoing battle between Grenell and Witzke, conservative commentator Elijah Schafer reached out to both parties to ask if they would come onto his BlazeTV show to debate each other. Witzke immediately accepted, while Grenell has yet to comment:

Despite conservatives supposedly leading the charge against cancel culture, in actuality a good portion of cancel culture happens within the conservative movement. Although CPAC’s motto this year may have been ‘America Uncancelled’, moderate conservatives still seem more than happy to ostracize their socially conservative counterparts. Many establishment Republicans and friends of Richard Grenell took to Twitter, demanding that Lauren Witzke be cancelled for supporting traditional marriage. Mind you, the vast majority of Republicans were against gay marriage just 6 years ago.

(Tweet by commentator @fadde was deleted shortly after this article was published)

Host of America First and popular conservative commentator Nicholas J. Fuentes called Grenell a member of the ‘Gay Mafia’ and accused him of using leftist tactics to try and intimidate Witzke.

While it doesn’t look like the argument will end anytime soon, it remains clear that there are still social conservatives within the GOP, and the establishment is going to use any means necessary to get them out. As our country rots and decays under Joe Biden, Republicans think that they can just become the left (but with free markets). That isn’t the case. America is not merely and idea or an economic system, America is a nation. A nation is nothing without its people, and America is at it’s greatest when strong family values are promoted by the state and the people see themselves as one nation under God. We’ve included a more miscellaneous tweets from the feud below for interested readers.
