We methodists are diverse some of us are liberal and some of us are very conservative. I can name many well known people from any sphere of life that are United Methodist example Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Rush Limbaugh both hardly considered liberal then you have Hillary Clinton on the other side. We are racialy diverse and diverse culturaly covering the entire globe. People that attempt to lable the UMC are making a mistake. It is true though that we are largely still in the Wesleyan-Arminian tradition though we differ in how seriously we take it. The UMC is very active helping people all over the world in many different ways. Whether you believe in social justice/social gospel or your a right winger like Don Wildmon all United Methodists that I'm aware are active helping others. It's something we take from our Wesleyan hertiage and Wesley got it from Jesus Christ.
