Liberal UMC leaders promise ‘wide variety of resistance tactics’ against Church position on LGBT issues
By The Christian Post
Theologically progressive United Methodist Church clergy and activists have promised a “wide variety of resistance tactics” against the denomination's official opposition to homosexuality and gay marriage.
Church of the Resurrection of Leawood, Kansas, the largest UMC congregation in the United States, hosted a gathering of about 600 pro-LGBT United Methodists called “UMC Next” this week.
At issue was the recent reaffirmation of the UMC Book of Discipline’s position that homosexuality is “incompatible with Christian teaching” and barred same-sex marriages as well as the ordination of noncelibate homosexuals known as the “Traditional Plan.”
