  1. With the liberalization of many churches over the past 30 years I wonder how often a single church has fought the central authority? I would assume that often those who oppose the view simply leave and go to a different church.

  2. I think that does happen often, but there are definitely still fights between individual congregations and their denominations--even within denominational groups such as the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), with a high degree of congregational autonomy. I imagine the fights are generally more or less fierce depending on how much or how little the denomination "owns." For example, the crux of this fight in Calvert City seems to be who actually owns the property that the congregation occupies. In the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the rubber tends to hit the road on whether an individual congregation continues to post the denomination's red chalice logo on its signs, letterheads, etc.
