Quit cherry picking scripture.
And if you can't love everyone, you are devoid of the Holy Spirit either way.

I firmly believe that you were born that way and no one has the right to tell them otherwise. Do you really think that they would choose to be ridiculed. Get over it! God lives us all gay or straight!!!!!

Hard for people to believe that god loves everyone when the church does not.

This is why church participation is increasingly declining in the US.

Not christian but for those who believe, this is what I mean by standing up to your church’s hypocrisy. Kudos to these young people. If the majority of church members would stand up like this the churches could shed their mean spirited dogma.

Important--American Methodists are not anti-LGBTQ--but they are a part of a global Methodist church body--and other nations think differently.

Good for these kids, standing up for their beliefs, standing up for what is right, standing up for Christian love. The UMC has turned into a huge disappointment.

My grandparents were strict Methodists . Basically anything fun was forbidden. My generation ( born 1950’s) are all atheists. The joke we enjoyed was “ why are Methodists so opposed to premarital sex? It might lead to dancing“
