And how about the reason we are at an impasse

I agree that this issue should never have become the do or die issue for the UMC. But it has because progressives are dead set on ignoring the will of General Conference and forcing their particular set of understandings on everybody. And at the root of such thinking on the part of progressives is a completely different set of theological beliefs than those that disagree with them. So the real do or die issue is the theological chasm that exists within the UMC that enables the UM Publishing house to peddle books by Marcus Borg--a progressive theologian--alongside a book like "40 Days with Wesley" that reclaims the orthodoxy of John Wesley. It's theological whiplash.

Way Forward

Or to sum it up, ignore all sexual sin and we can unify. There you go. Problem solved. Throw out the Old Testament and most of the new while we are at it. Why didn't anyone think of that before?
BTW there is a difference between an advertising slogan and doctrine.
