(by the Rev. Dr. John Dorhauer):
Churches can, and do, vote to leave my denomination: the United Church of Christ.
Churches vote to affiliate with my denomination.
Often, when I talk about the former, I refer to conspiratorial tactics. And when I do, I am asked why I don't allude to conspiracies when churches vote to leave their own denomination to join us.
