the ird, using cia "destabilization" methods, seeks to create enough confusion, cynicism, and conflict that good people lose faith with their church. it is an organization that claims to be about "renewal" and projects an earnestness in its communications; but really is a sophisticated front for neo-cons and catholic radicals. so many good people have believed their lies. its time for united methodists to developed a media sophistication that recognizes these "movements" for what they are: well-funded political "think tanks" devoted to separating good people from the faith. surely hell awaits them.
