All I can say is wow.

The "minister" they quote in the article who is calling for the change said, "when I saw the United Methodist Cross and Flame, I didn’t think of John Wesley’s heart being strangely warmed, I didn’t think of the flaming tongues of fire resting on the Apostles in Acts 2. I didn’t think of how each tongue of the flame represents the former denominations that came together to form The United Methodist Church — The Evangelical United Brethren and The Methodist Church. My mind went back to that burning cross I saw on the side of the freeway — a symbol my mother told me was devised to cause fear in black people.”

Here we have a man who SHOULD derive his worldview through the lens of Christ and Scripture, but still only sees the world through the false lens of the woke left. Sad.

Their symbol always appeared to me to be a "T" or "Tau" that was burning. The Tau is a symbol for the winged staff of Hermes, and the fire depicted suggests it emerging from Hell. When you look at when the UMC adopted the symbol, I believe it was after they went Liberal/Apostate.
