Comments: Methodists hold consultation on same sex marriage and civil partnership

This consultation seems, as they say, just after the nick of time... and it makes me sad that a multi-year consideration is now beginning. Has this question not been of obvious concern for years? It is especially painful to see how Methodists in the US are moving on this issue with various presentments and inhibitions. It makes the Methodist Movement appear quite reactionary and mean spirited. Its hard to see the fingerprints of John Wesley on such sluggish and non-pastoral action. Its hard for me to see any future for the Methodist Church beyond the next 20 years if it can not get beyond this present state.

And it was this denomination who kicked my paternal grandfather out for enjoying a drink and dancing!
