God’s work?

I sure as hell don’t think so.

The highest court in the United Methodist Church yesterday defrocked a lesbian minister in Philadelphia and reinstated a Virginia pastor who had been suspended for denying a gay man membership in his congregation.

The nine-member Judicial Council also rejected a declaration by Methodists in the Pacific Northwest that there is a “difference of opinion among faithful Christians regarding sexual orientation and practice.” The court said the declaration was a “historical statement without prescriptive force” and had no bearing on church laws.
