Methodists Reinstate Lesbian Pastor

UMC, you can join the UCC and ECUSA over in the corner:

(AgapePress) – The United Methodist Church has once again put its stamp of approval on practicing homosexuals in the pulpit. An appeals committee within the UMC decided last week to reinstate a lesbian ministry from Philadelphia who earlier had been removed from her position after revealing her relationship with another woman.


[…]
According to the decision handed down by the appeals committee, Stroud was deprived of due process because neither the UMC’s General Conference nor the pertinent Annual [regional] Conference has defined the words “practicing homosexual” and “status.” In addition — as explained by conservative Methodist activists Mark Tooley — the committee claimed that the prohibition of extra-marital sexual behavior “was somehow an illegal new ‘doctrine’ invented by the [UMC’s] General Conference” in recent years.

*sigh*

So the United Methodist Church is taking pages from the Pharisees now? Is the Bible not clear enough on this topic?
