Wall Street Journal headline:
Methodists Keep Bans On Same-Sex Weddings, LGBTQ Clergy
My translation: Methodists reject Jesus for a chance to increase numbers calling it ironically being more like Jesus; most casting evil ballots knew Jesus wept.
The value of LGBTQ folks can’t be voted away by religious or political groups–not that they haven’t tried and tried and keep on trying. Methodists are just the latest bunch to attempt to dehumanize. They are by no means alone.
Life-long Methodist, the Hon. James Hanby, will have a fuller response here soon.
