LGBT inclusion in American Christianity

While The Episcopal Church continues to struggle toward full inclusion of LGBT Christians, other denominations do as well. The United Methodist General Conference voted down by 61% to 39% a proposal to drop language from its Book of Discipline that reads:

“The United Methodist Church does not condone the practice of homosexuality and considers this practice incompatible with Christian teaching.”

One reason for the lopsided vote is that United Methodist General Conference includes delegates from other United Methodist conferences throughout the world. More here.

Meanwhile, Billy Graham has put his stamp of approval on the proposed North Carolina Amendment 1, that would enshrine discrimination against LGBT citizens in the state’s constitution.



One thought on “LGBT inclusion in American Christianity

  1. It’s a shame. Graham has rightly earned a reputation as one of the more reasonable and kind religious leaders in the country. Now that reputation will be put to the service of hurting people.
