“VERDICT: Methodist Pastor Has 30 Days To Renounce His Gay Children Or Be Defrocked“
This was the headline on a popular “progressive” blog site in November, introducing an article that detailed the disciplining of a renegade UMC pastor who was conducting “gay marriage ceremonies”.
The key problem is though, that the article provided scant basis for the claim that he was asked to “Renounce His Gay Children”. Articles elsewhere likewise illustrated practically no basis for the claim, and in fact some more responsible publications pointed out that the denomination takes a historically Christian approach of accepting gay and lesbian members (but considers homosexual relations to be sinful).
The article is just another example of “progressive” publications that mislead.
