Read this powerful article about the fight over full inclusion of LGBTQ at the UMC Conference.
Here is the statement that I find problematic:
“The United Methodist Church officially affirms the sacred worth of every person, regardless of sexual orientation.”
In other words, “You are a person of sacred worth. Sort of. You could do better. Too bad you are gay. If you weren’t, you would really be a person of sacred worth. Then we would ordain you and everything.”
