My family left the United Methodist church back in the late 1980’s because of increasingly liberal leanings of the pastor and the church body. Even then, there was a distinct sense of approval and acceptance for homosexual behavior that, to me, indicated a tacit rejection of God’s Word. When an assistant pastor (semi-retired, not a young man) openly stated (at a dinner in a private home) that he saw nothing wrong with same-sex ‘marriage’, that did it. Although I held a ‘lay leader’ position, we were gone within a month. (With apologies to Yogi Berra) it appears to be Déjà vu all over again in the United Methodist church.
I know of several Bishops on the Council who are openly supportive of ordaining queers. The Council of Bishops is not a body I would expect to be sympathetic to traditional Biblical values.
