The struggle is real

Wilbur Hassenfus observes at Dalrock's blog:
[UMC] Bishop [sic] Oliveto deserves a lot of credit. In the old days, bishops used to struggle to be more like Christ, but now Christ is apparently struggling — with, to His credit, some qualified success — to be more like her.

These are the kind of improvements you see when you put women in charge of your institution. Very impressive!

The observation is a comment about this -- PJMedia: Lesbian Bishop [sic] Calls Jesus a Bigot
United Methodist Church bishop [sic] Dr. Karen Oliveto is not only a lesbian, she also believes (and publicly teaches) that Jesus was a bigot filled with prejudices. She does say that Jesus grew and changed, and that’s her point. Bishop [sic] Oliveto admonishes, “If Jesus can change, if he can give up his bigotries and prejudices, if he can realize that he had made his life too small, and if, in this realization, he grew closer to others and closer to God, than so can we.”

The struggle which is real is, of course, the same old one it has always been -- to plant one's own ass on God's throne.

Wow. The Son of God was a bigot. That deserves to be in the SJW Hall of Fame.

Plus, as another commenter pointed out, "So a Lesbian UMC Bishop denies the divinity of Jesus, and no one even notices? God is unchanging; Jesus is God; therefore, Jesus is unchanging. Also, God is perfect, Jesus is God, therefore Jesus is perfect. If Jesus held a wrong opinion, He can’t be God. And if Jesus changed His mind, He can’t be God."

You know all those attacks on Paul over the past few decades for his violations of Current Year's twisted morality? That was just the lead-up to this, under the time-honored principle that if you can't attack the King, you attack his ministers.

I think these kinds of things are byproducts of the progressive bubble. There is no one in this woman's life who thinks differently than she does, at least no one to whom she will listen. When she says utter rot like this, no one calls her out on it.
