UMC Traditional Plan details 

Has anyone come across a good overview of exactly what was passed yesterday (“as amended”), what amendments were made, what about it still remains unconstitutional, and what the sum policy outcome is likely to actually happen as a result of portions of it are nullified?

@brettdh basically, the Traditionalist plan wanted to start a witch hunt to cast out affirming clergy, and that was struck down.

@brettdh if you still have a Twitter account, Adam Hamilton has done so explaining and @umjeremy has super detailed coverage. If not, we might all have to wait for reporting from the press. I have 2 friends at the conference & they are telling me different things, so I think it's just confusing.

@brettdh according to most recent updates, they're kicking a lot of official decisions until their meeting in April. The whole law is deeply unconstitutional according to church law. (In the end, this is a government w a legal system.) Don't know how long I'll be able to ride it out for my local church friends. Probably until my last queer friend has left. I want support for anybody who continues to show up

@brettdh I hate what transpired and hate to share this blog. This is a blog post from essentially a traditional plan lobbyist group. Take it with a grain of salt. It does give an outline of what passed and will be changed in the Book of Discipline. juicyecumenism.com/2019/02/27/
