Methodists in Minnesota
I’m rejoicing as I read Mary’s mention that the Methodists in Minnesota have voiced their Christian view that includes gay marriage and gay clergy, barring language that wants to make homosexuality incompatible with Christianity. This is a social justice issue that is at the heart of God’s self revelation today.
An example is the 40 lesbians and gays who were banned and beaten in Moscow for making public their existence. I’m reminded that love, the deepest sense of God, is threatening to society and endangers those who risk bearing witness to love.
