The question is what does GC think.

It's the bishop's opinion that these issues are not essentials but opinions. But it's the GC delegates opinions that matter.

It's just very hard to have a called ministry as is, but now we are going to require conservatives to take openly gay preachers. That seems like a tough nut to crack. Yea, I know, the conservatives have protections until you've run off enough conservatives so that they don't. Without a called ministry, these issues would go away, but the called ministry is one of the big ways that we have successfully pushed our churches to greater social justice. We seem to be killing the goose that they laid the golden egg.
