Is the UMC Tent big enough for "W?"

Subject: Is the UMC Tent big enough for "W?"

In the recent United Methodist News Service article, Washington D.C. Area United Methodist Bishop Felton Edwin May gave an answer to the title question of this Michael's Sword article:

"I fully expect the president and his family to find a United Methodist church home in one of our many congregations in the Washington area," May said in a prepared statement. "The United Methodist Church includes wide political and theological diversity. There is room for all who seek to follow Jesus Christ. I am confident the president will be able to find a church that nurtures his faith and supports his family's spiritual life."
In this statement, Felton May demonstrates the utter hypocrisy which is the epitome of most, if not all UMC bishops.  Here this man fully supports organizations such as the RCRC that works to demonize great people of the Christian faith such as John Ashcroft, and yet he has the nerve to imply that the UMC is for every Christian persuasion.

Or, am I wrong?  Has Felton May become Clintonesque?  Notice the qualifier in his statement:  "The United Methodist Church includes wide political and theological diversity. There is room for all who seek to follow Jesus Christ."  OK, now I understand the Clinton-speak:  The UMC has room for you only if you seek to follow Jesus Christ according to the liberal's belief as to what it means to "seek to follow Jesus Christ."

I may be slow, but eventually I catch on.
