Love, do not judge our neighbors

By Letter To The Editor

The St. Louis United Methodist General Conference has been reported for its 53 percent to 47 percent vote (a 54 vote world-wide margin) that homosexual practice is incompatible with Christian teaching. Moves for stricter clergy rules and tighter guidelines on weddings were also considered. These hot-button items have long been used to trigger intense reactions. Some, including me, believe they are selectively designed and worded to appease narrow, mean-spirited conservative persons who want church facilities kept and staffed for asexual or heterosexual persons only.
