I belong to a Methodist church in Bowie. I go to a Methodist church because I want to go to a protestant church and I am too liberal to go to a Baptist church. There are very few religious choices around so I’m limited in where I can attend.
I am not Methodist; I am not Baptist; I am not Christian Reformed (the religion I was raised in). I am, however, a Christian.
Currently, the Methodist church is proposing that we check new members out on the Sex Offender Registry for Maryland. Really. At what point do we check them out? When they’ve come twice to services? Five times? Ten times? If they want to join, are we going to run a background check before they do? I don’t think so.
This is just ludicrous.
