fact of the matter is, you're generalizing.<quoted text>
Fact of the matter is, the dying churches are the liberal 'open and affirming' denominations.
By 'political', you must mean selling their soul to support the desecration of marriage and family
our " open and affirming" congregation is still growing, as are several others that I'm familiar with. our congregation is currently experiencing the highest membership since we were established in the 60's.
Butt, as usual, you know more than everyone else.
