This particular local Methodist church has had various issues for years. Its stand on homosexuality is a trashy way of trying to find more congregants to throw money in the collection plate before Greater New Jersey Conference of the United Methodist Church closes it down and sells the building..The true Methodists from Mount Tabor go to the Methodist church in Denville, and they have for years.

It's time for the association in Mount Tabor to charge the Mount Tabor United Methodist Church fair market value for the land it rents. At present the church/homosexual social club pays $1.00 per year and the residential leaseholders pay about $300.00. Why are the residential leaseholders forced to support the Mount Tabor United Methodist Church?

It's almost funny. They had to vote on whether or not to love and accept their brothers and sisters in Christ - as Jesus commanded them to do. I wonder what else they needed to vote on?

Most people don't find it easy to accept perverts no matter how much they're forced to.

The vote of these church members seems to be one to endorse and promote homosexuality within the Methodist church and society.

I'm waiting for Mount Tabor's Childrens' Day celebration to be turned into Mount Tabor Gay Pride Weekend.
