Condemnation.

We affirm that God’s grace is available to all. We will seek to live together in Christian community, welcoming, forgiving, and loving one another, as Christ has loved and accepted us.We implore families and churches not to reject or condemn lesbian and gay members and friends. We commit ourselves to be in ministry for and with all persons.

I think it is a misrepresentation to say that the BOD contains a strong condemnation of homosexuality. In the case that is described on page 2 as support, it should be noted that the youth minister did not live up to the social principles outlined in the BOD (see above). The BOD does not affirm the practice, but also specifically implores us not to condemn. To the extent that this young man's suicide 5 years later was caused by this event, the youth minister and local church should consider their actions and think about the wisdom that they ignored from the BOD.
