United Methodists confront possible split over LGBTQ issues

Local News

Leaders of the United Methodist Church are in St. Louis to try to come to an agreement on whether to accept same-sex marriage and LGBTQ clergy.

Delegates from around the world at the conference hoping to have a decision by Tuesday.  

The decision could change the church’s historical stance on marriage.  

There are three plans that have been proposed: Keeping the Tradition, One Church Plan and the Connectional Conference.  

Keeping the Tradition reinforces the church’s current position, One Church Plan would allow same-sex marriages and the ordination of LGBTQ pastors and Connectional Conference would reorganize the church by conferences based on theological beliefs.
