Missed It by That Much ...
The United Methodist Church -- Dubya's own church and the second largest protestant denomination in the US -- almost had a clean sweep.
During the church’s recent General Conference, held in Fort Worth from April 22 to May 2, not just one but three resolutions passed expressing the church's support for evolutionary science.
The conference also refused to label trangenderism as incompatible with Christian teaching or to bar trangendered people from church membership.
Unfortunately, just such a label and ban were retained in the case of gay people, which was, to say the least, more than queer.
Maybe next time they'll remember to turn off the cone of silence.
