BREAKING: United Methodist Church leaders from around the world are proposing a new conservative denomination that would split from the rest of the church in an attempt to resolve a yearslong dispute over gay marriage and gay clergy. https://t.co/EibnG85ykR— The Associated Press (@AP) January 3, 2020
Liberalism and Christianity are irreconcilable.
“Leaders of the United Methodist Church, the second-largest Protestant denomination in the nation, announced on Friday a plan that would formally split the church after years of division over same-sex marriage.
Under the plan, which would sunder a denomination with 13 million members worldwide, a new “traditionalist Methodist” denomination would be created, and would continue to ban same-sex marriage as well as the ordination of gay and lesbian clergy.
A separation in the Methodist church had been anticipated since a contentious general conference in St Louis last February, when 53 percent of church leaders and lay members voted to tighten the ban on same-sex marriage, declaring that “the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching.” …
These people who claim to be Christians who support gay marriage and homosexual clergy because it is fashionable to do so won’t be Christians a decade or two from now. Appeasing them will only continue to poison and destroy the church like it did with the Church of England.
Note: I was raised in a vaguely Methodist household and was alienated from Christianity because of this liberal garbage.
