Methodists To Divide Over Gay Marriage

January 14, 2020

In May 2020 delegates for the United Methodist Church will convene in Minneapolis to decide how the United Methodist Church and its 13 million members will settle a fight over gay marriage and gay clergy that has been going on for the last 40 years. Join Gregg and Pastor Dana Everhart, the newly installed Senior Pastor of Saint Marks United Methodist Church in Atlanta to discuss the fight and a possible solution that is gaining traction. This solution would result in the church separating into two sects: those that allow for gay marriage and gay clergy…and those that do not. This kind of separation is not without precedent with the last one occurring in the late 1800s in connection with those Methodists that condoned slavery and those that did not.
