The Methodists and the United Brethren need to divorce each other
The 1968 merger yielded a conflicted denomination that cannot serve its customers adequately
Apparently; their slogan 'Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.' is a bunch of blooey they have no intention of fulfilling

I'm glad that Bishop Talbert is performing the ceremony! My wife and I are United Methodists, and we think it's great. Our church just two days ago voted to become what is known as a Reconciling Congregation, which means that GLBTQI's will be full and very welcome members in our church!
