IN the NEWS - Methodist Gay Clergy Protest

2 Questions for the UMC:
1) What are openly practicing gay members in the church in the first place?
2) Who promoted them to the status of clergy?

"A group known as the United Methodist Queer Clergy Caucus released a letter on Monday morning demanding that the UMC be more inclusive of LGBT members.
The letter came in response to the upcoming trial of openly gay Bishop Karen Oliveto before the denomination's highest court, the United Methodist Judicial Council.
Next week, the Judicial Council will determine whether Oliveto should no longer be bishop of the Mountain Sky Area region due to being in a same-sex marriage.
"While these questions, briefs and complaints are filed against some LGBTQI individuals, we consider them to be against all of us. These actions can also be considered as a general attack on the evangelism, discipleship, and mission potential of the United Methodist movement," read the letter in part.
The Rev. Alex da Silva Souto, one of the signatories of the letter, told The Christian Post that the letter was meant to express the views of LGBT United Methodists." CP
