The edit war[edit]

Seems mostly over, but regardless, I had reinserted PC's edits and corrected any grammatical errors/awkwardness (which P-Foster also did, albeit in his own fashion). Archie, you don't need to get your panties in a bunch over everything I do, okay?--Brxbrx 04:06, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

"Shut up, Brx."--Brxbrx 04:06, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Your writing was shit, Brx. leave it to Human or me. P-Foster Talk ""Santorum is the cream rising to the top."" 04:08, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Bullshit. If Archie hadn't been trying to swing his dick around, you would have let my edits stand because they were fine, just fine.--Brxbrx 04:10, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

social work and salvation?[edit]

So, we don't really say anything about the Methodist theology, which is the single reason a Methodist is a Methodist, and not say, a baptist, but we talk about them going to potlucks? --Pink mowse.pngGodot What do cats dream about? 05:07, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

I googled "salvation potluck keillor" "quote methodist keillor", and just "salvation through potluck -army" and came up with nothing about the quote "salvation via potluck" we have. sounds to me like most midwest churches, not just Methodist. Anyone have more on it?Pink mowse.pngGodot What do cats dream about? 15:49, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Someone else wrote about salvation by potluck. I suspect it's about the Calvinist idea that god selects who will be saved and we can't change our fate. When I edit an article too many people assume I wrote everything controversial there and I get blamed for too much that I didn't write. Proxima Centauri (talk) 19:15, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Look, your prosecution complex is in someways, justified. But if we do not mention your name, no one is claiming you did it. If you have something worth adding, to support one side or the other, go for it. But no one is attacking you here. --Pink mowse.pngGodot What do cats dream about? 19:18, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Wesleyan Stances[edit]

Coming from a Wesleyan church, I can tell you that the church I attended lines up with almost none of the stuff listed in the UMC's positions, especially on gay marriage, evolution and gun control. Any other former Wesleyans notice the same, or is that just me? Greatnecro (talk) 19:20, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

The FUMC church I went to for a few years and attended after-school daycare at for a few more supports those positions, but it is in a college town. Didn't stop them from traumatizing the fuck outta me, anyway. --Zoe Kirk (talk) 03:59, 30 June 2021 (UTC)

Difference between United Methodism and Methodism as a whole[edit]

The section of the page regarding the United Methodist Church's stances on social issues doesn't seem to try and distinguish the denomination from the Methodist movement as a whole. I threw in a statistic to at least make it somewhat clear that United Methodism is just one denomination, but should the whole section be reworked to better clarify the difference?

Not to be confused with[edit]

Method acting.
