A former Austinite is now The United Methodist Church's first openly non-binary trans person to be ordained as a deacon.
After 12 years, M Barclay, who prefers the pronouns them/their, can call themself reverend. It's a title that took 12 years to earn-- more than twice as long as most Methodists pursuing the same ordination.
"I am just filled with joy and excitement that this wall has been broken down-- at least in this moment," says Barclay.

Of course, SHE was once in charge of the youth ministry.
Walls are usually broken down when a city is over run by barbarians.
You don’t get to choose your pronouns. The English language has existed since long before this idiot was born. It is used for communication and not for political commentary.
Yep we need to smash those walls. We are too binary in our thinking, to think there are two sexes, male and female. We all are bigoted. Not everyone identifies as male or female. There are other identities.
We need a sexless genderless individual such as this, who is so enlightening about all these gender issues, to guide us and lead us out of the darkness of a world divided into two sexes. We obviously have been living in the dark ages when it comes to sexuality.
Romans 1 covers all of this. I guess the Methodists haven’t read that one.
Pennsylvania, my state, and Texas seem to suffer from the same illness.
We all think of these places as conservative strongholds, but redistricting has actually made them stealthy liberal strongholds.
It wasnt a wall he broke, it was the dam so many Methodists can go ahead and find a church that respects and preaches the gospel.
“Barclay found a new place of belonging with the Reconciling Ministries Network advocating for LGBTQ persons.”
It will find a home among a few other deviants and vicious people. It is wearing a Roman collar. Selfish.
What is a “non-binary trans person”?
Should it not be termed an “it” (singular) rather than a “them” (plural)? Does schizophrenia become the determining factor?
“Inquiring minds... would really rather NOT know...”
so deluded that “they” can’t even follow the “rules” of their own lie.
“I am filled with joy and excitement.....” or maybe more accurate would be “WE are joy and exCREment.....”
i think deluded = delighted in the new freak-speak.
“Romans 1 covers all of this. I guess the Methodists havent read that one.”
Read it ! They are living it !
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know Gods righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
As best I can tell, it's mentally and emotionally uncertain of it's sexual attractions, but it still wants to change the plumbing.
God is not mocked; this is what awaits if this wicked individual refuses to repent of their wickedness: Lukes 16:23 - 24; Revelation 20:10, 14 - 15 = The Lake of Fire is their ultimate, eternal destination. Tagline
Beware of false prophets.
M Barclay...can call themself reverend. M Barclay...can call themself reverend. M Barclay...can call themself reverend.
As if I weren't disturbed enough by this woman, her grammar is appalling. Even my phone kept auto-correcting the non-existent word "themself." ("Themselves" is a word.) You've got to love people who make up new words to match their made-up new genders.
Sorry, woman, try as hard as you want; you'll always be a "she." You'll never be a "themself." Don't delude yourself and don't insult the rest of us.
Yeah, I’ve heard of those. We call them devil worshippers
Well isn’t that just so special.
