Interesting points.

Long story short: in 20 years this'll be a dead issue anyhow. People who now spew hatred against LGBTQ people are going be denying they ever did, just like Whites who spewed hatred against Blacks were denying they ever did by 1985.

But it is true people now, including some UMCers in the seventies and eighties, in places like Gadsen, Alabama or Lucas, Kansas, would support removing that horrible "practice of homosexuality" language, as long as they don't have to say so in front of haters they know. If we get to decide which way to go by secret ballot, we will find progressive voices from Bend, Oregon, to Sarasota, Florida.

“I think it’s critical to the witness of the Church in the 21st century that we have ways of unlearning the habits of a very distorted Gospel and learning to live and be good news in the communities where we are.”

– Author Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, in a 2020 article in The Anglican Journal.
