Amazing

It just doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

The UPCI can't win with either side. Both groups of people who are not a part of the UPC...either they have left or they have never been a part. However, the UPC is their favorite target. Granted I have been around long enough and have enough connections with the organization (besides being licensed myself), and I know that the organization has issues.

However...those on left and right are constant critics.

For you right wing non UPCers - if we criticize the AMF or GIB we had better watch out

For you left wing non UPCers - criticize "charismatics, AOG, the TBN bunch"....we are close minded etc, etc.

And don't get me started on the way right wingers and left wingers still in the UPC. If you have so many problems with it....you have my permission to leave. I don't want you in it if you despise it so much.

If we side don't side with the left and if we don't side with the right, then we are labelled compromisers. So no matter what we do, we gonna get a label stuck on us somewhere!
