"The United Methodist Church, the second largest sponsor of Scout units after the Mormons, expressed support for the policy change — saying it was in line with church policy opposing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation."

I guess this isn't considered church policy any more.


Jude1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

The inspired Word of God is the only authority we have in making decisions in Body of Christ. Who do people think they are when they sit down and decide to add to and take away from it. I guess when you worship after man made doctorine any thing is possible.This is why the Bible says to have Elders at each congregation to look over the flock. You don't have world headquaters where a few men decide what a few million are going to believe.My prayer is that folks will open their Bible and see if what they are doing is in the scriptures.

That's nothing...wait until you go to your brother in-law's Episcopilian Church in Maryland and see your nephew christened by an open, flaming homosexual pastor. And, an entire congregation that supports it! Whenever I leave little old East Tenn I realize just how sheltered I am...and I'm thankful for it. Satan is running rampant all around us, make no mistake, even if you don't notice it.

This is the goal of the liberals in our nation. They want to end any entity in our country that espouses Biblical principles and teaches our children. The Scouts are on that list of groups that must be brought down by political correctness..

The sad thing is my wife is Methodist and has tried to get me to join her church and I have never felt good when I visited hers. This might have a lil to do with that gut feeling I had. I just hope this will open her eyes to what the Methodist are really about, maybe not the common church goers, but the ones making the "policies" for the masses to " follow "

This really gives me the creeps. The Methodist Church used to be a fine organization. How could they have gone so wrong. Over the last years as a church it has become some kind of strange, unwelcoming place to Christians. The so-called leaders should be removed from their positions and a re-birth put in place only I don't know if it is possible. How very sad and at the same time very creepy weird. I guess it goes to show you how far you can fall.

I don't believe on judgement day anyone is gettin a free pass because someone else told them that's what the Bible says.Study to show thy self approved unto God rightly dividing the Word of Truth.That goes for all of us. People would be suprised how much of what they have been taught is found no where in the Bible.

The liberals objective is to attack, and destroy Christianity. They've already taken prayer, and Christmas out of schools, and want to force every organization, including churches, to condone and accept the gay lifestyle.

John 12:48 tells us we will be judeged by his word which is the scriptures. It is best for us to go by the scriptures not adding or taking away from. There are several OT examples of people doing things that they thought were better than Gods plan and they were punished for it.

Born and raised Catholic. I watched a really good denomination turn into a layer of liberalism. First, they defend the altar boy rapists then they fool their parishoners by parading around their false Pro Life stance only to support Obama.

I could go into more with a couple of big time lib priests in Nashville too.

I would love to go into Sunday school and ask a few questions myself. Just went and dropped off our Daughter at Church. Dam that was very hard!!!!!!!!! Its killing me to put up with this! I honestly dont know what I should do. I want to put my foot down. This is really putting a strain on my morals and in turn my family. I am not going to sell out I can tell you that! It might even mean my marriage, I feel that strongly about this.

I know of several Catholics that were told they would need to donate thousands of dollars to the church, then they would be allowed to go to purgatory , and eventually gain salvation.

This is why the Methodist Church broke off from the Catholics ....... Now it appears there right back in the same boat.

I just don't have the same issues with MY Methodist church. I attend the CMC, and from all my queries, they don't seem to be in line with the UNITED METHODIST CHURCH. They don't condone gay pastors, and don't condone women either to my knowledge behind the pulpit. I WILL however continue to research these accusations from the broader sense of the Methodist church tho for sure.
