ST. ALBANS, United Kingdom — European leaders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church have warned British Adventists that if Brits vote for the UK to leave the European Union, the British Union Conference will be be ejected from the Trans-European Division (TED).
The potential British exit (Brexit) from the EU will be voted upon in a referendum this summer. A vote to exit the EU would leave British Adventists without the support of other countries in the TED.
Division leaders painted a bleak picture of British Pathfinders no longer being allowed to attend TED camporees and British Adventists “shedding lonely tears on cold, English beaches.”
TED spokesperson Lamna Nu said that a “Brexit would mean that British Adventists would be stuck eating the same slop that is served at their potlucks and camp meetings, without the ennobling culinary influences of more gastronomically evolved European countries.”
