Scripture

How does following scripture represent hate? I truly believe that it is clearly stated that homosexuality is wrong. I don't hate homosexuals. I do believe that being openly gay disqualifies a person from becoming a pastor. While we are all sinful by nature, which means all pastors are sinful, it is important to acknowledge that sin or transgression and not to accept or worse to celebrate it.

Uniting

This post is excellent. Illustrates just why the Way Forward initiative is doomed to fail.

UMC is Not About Hatred

Our current approach to homosexuality legalizes hate, bigotry, and discrimination. There is no place for hate in the UMC.

The only healthy way forward is full inclusion of the LGBT community.

Notable Quotes 


"... Sometimes the gospel confronts us with values that are counter to a white supremacist, nationalist, militaristic, xenophobic, homophobic, misogynistic, anti-environmental, or ableist agenda. Even without mentioning a specific president, a sermon that preaches the values of welcoming the immigrant, obeying the commandment not to murder, lifting up 'the least of these,' or valuing black lives can be mistakenly perceived as promoting a 'liberal agenda.'"

– Leah D. Schade, "What to Do When Parisioners Leave ... Because of Politics."
