|Rev. Adam Hamilton speaks in support of referring issue of LGBTQ inclusion|
to the Council of Bishops, asking them to craft a non-binding resolution.
An interesting thing just happened on the plenary floor of General Conference. A motion was put forward to have the issue of LGBTQ inclusion referred to the Council of Bishops, asking them to craft a non-binding resolution. The motion was supported 428 - 364. Now, as Bishop Ough reminded us all this morning, the Council cannot put forward legislation themselves. I’m curious to see how this ends up playing out. My thought, and the thoughts of a few others that I have spoken to is that the bishops will craft a proposal and put it in the hands of an elected delegate. We’ll see. Afraid to be hopeful. Too desperate to see the end of the harm to LGBTQ persons not to be. #umcgc #itstime
For the remainder of General Conference, I’m probably going to do a lot more of this Tumblr-like mini-blogging. Also, check out my Facebook page. I’ve been posting other related information and articles there.
