Leaking to the Left

The data suggest that when PCA ministers leave, they go left.

…The rightward transfers are numerically insignificant. The leftward moves are interesting. There is no hemorrhage of ministers in any direction but there is a dripping leak to the left. It may be asked, “Isn’t it good that egalitarian or less confessional ministers leave?” We would answer in the affirmative, but we’d also note that the precipitating change in convictions probably didn’t arrive with lightning-bolt speed. The number leaving left suggest that men with egalitarian convictions operated in the PCA for a number of years before departing. This is all the more evident when you consider the fact of continuing “gender confusion” in the PCA.
