Is it a “church” or a club?

This could be the end of the Methodist Church.

I will go Bible home-school when Methodist start granting gay marriages.

Not a church. A den of sin, and a den of liars. The people who would attend such a place are not Christians, and I will never recognize them as such.

And when people of faith take their marriage elsewhere, the church loses money and dies. Not like there is a Pope to Xcom anyone so I do not see an issue.

Other than homos closing ANOTHER church...which is the intent to begin with.

In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.

First wife was UMC so naturally we attended her denomination instead of mine. We had one pastor who was great friends with Tom Harkin, the guy who ran Nicaragua and Gov. Vlasick. Another was a female pastor who lasted exactly one year. EVERY single sermon was about gay rights.

From that house of worship's website:

Green Street is a Reconciling Congregation, open and affirming of Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, Transgendered and Straight people. While the United Methodist denomination continues to wrestle with issues around sexual identity, Green Street seeks to be a witness to the wider church community by living out the motto of “open minds, open hearts and open doors.”
