John Lomperis of the theologically conservative Institute on Religion & Democracy and an elected delegate to the United Methodist General Conference, took issue with the Protocol.

In an interview with Tyler O’Neil of PJ Media, Lomperis explained that while some of the plan was “helpful,” certain details were “unfair toward traditionalist believers within the UMC.”

“… the burden would be imposed entirely on conservatives to take the initiative and force a vote if they wanted their congregation or annual conference (the main UMC regional unit) into the more conservative branch,” Lomperis said.
