Dan Dick’s most recent post is titled “Baptism is Thicker Than Water.” It begins thus:
At what point should The United Methodist Church admit its failures and simply split over the issues of human sexuality raised by LGBTQI people and those in the church unwilling or unable to accept them? For me, the answer is simple — at the point that we admit that we do not believe God has the power to unite, reconcile and heal. To stay together is an act of faith. To separate is to reject God, renounce Jesus, and revoke our baptism.
I would encourage you to head over to his blog, United Methodeviations, and read the whole thing.
