In his article, "Christian Ethics in Volatile Times," Rev. Stephens commends Maxie Dunnam for being able “to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves." While Rev. Dunnam may have championed racial justice, he is certainly not on the side of inclusion for the LGBTQ community. Please view https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSxmmku2Bi0&t=140s for his video opposing a 2008 amendment put forth by general conference. This amendment would have included everyone in the life of the church. Rev. Dunnam encourages Methodists to vote against the amendment because it would allow homosexuals to become members, and it would remove a pastor's authority to deny membership on the grounds of sexual orientation. Unfortunately, the UMC did not ratify the proposed amendment.
