GPAC Resolution

GREAT PLAINS ANNUAL CONFERENCE RESOLUTION:
DISAVOWAL OF THE TRADITIONAL PLAN

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS: YES

WHEREAS, using appropriate, quality biblical scholarship, there is no biblical mandate to discriminate against LGBTQ+ persons and relationships.

WHEREAS, the United Methodist Church is capable of great nuance in the matter of biblical interpretation as displayed in its treatment of issues such as divorce and the ordination of women, but reverts to simplistic literalism when it comes to the full inclusion of LGBTQ+ persons in its life and ministry.

WHEREAS, the United Methodist Church has singled out LGBTQ+ persons for special punitive action while ignoring the “clear biblical teaching” on other matters such as pensions (Matthew 6:19-20).

WHEREAS, much of the Traditional Plan had already been ruled unconstitutional before it was voted upon.

WHEREAS, the first general rule that John Wesley gave the people called Methodists concerns “doing no harm.”

WHEREAS, United Methodists promise “to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves.”

WHEREAS, by passing the Traditional Plan, the denomination has done great, and perhaps irreparable harm to our LGBTQ+ siblings.

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the Great Plains Annual Conference (GPAC) condemns the decision of the 2019 General Conference to pass the Traditional Plan and apologizes for the harm that it has caused LGBTQ+ persons, their families, their friends, and the body of Christ. “We affirm that all persons are individuals of sacred worth, created in the image of God,” but we also assert and affirm that no human being is incompatible with Christian teaching.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, no GPAC funds or monies (either directly through payments or indirectly through the time of employees of the conference) shall be expended for the purpose of background investigations, complaints, just resolutions, or clergy trials pertaining LGBTQ+ ordination and marriage.

Dear Friends,

We have been overwhelmed by the response to John’s petition. We expected 300 supporters total not more than 300 supporters in less than 24 hours. We are unable to keep up. For that reason we have switched to a Google Form (link below) If you cannot get the form to work, we’ll migrate your information for you.

Blessings, John Collins

A note to persons who are not a member of the Great Plains Annual Conference, or an official member of a local church within the Great Plains Annual Conference: please know that you have not been forgotten. We value your support. I plan to include you in a category of “co-signed” as soon as I can get to it.
