Leaving a church

People are free to choose. People will vote with their feet. But I’m convinced that at the roots of the church split movement and the church-consumer drive is a deeper ill, and that is our inability and unwillingness to love and forgive– and be reconciled to– all people. It betrays the serious fracture not only in the church, but in all religion, all races, and all people. It exposes the fact that we love ideas more than our fellow human beings.

We love ideas more than our fellow human beings - how precise a description of those who claim that they need to go to another church because they were not well fed by their church's pulpit.

The rest of the quoted article is just as great. I recommend that you go over there and read the whole article, even though it is heart breaking to read.
