US Methodists Plot Ways to Resist New LGBT Rules
On Thursday evening last week, 300 United Methodist clergy and laypeople gathered outside their denomination’s regional headquarters in Garner, N.C., to protest a recent vote that bans LGBT people from marriage and ordination.

Their protest was one of many.

Across the country, from Iowa to Michigan and Texas to Wisconsin, thousands of United Methodists who support LGBT rights are rising up to denounce the denomination’s recent decision to strengthen its ban on gay clergy and same-sex weddings.

These United Methodists are signing petitions, taking out newspaper ads and, in some cases, withholding their dues to the denomination. ...

Great question, Frank. I think with the UMC, one has to look at the individual congregation. There are some who hold positions pretty close to where we are. My wife and I know of one or two, and when we bumped into one church's pastor, he claimed that his is part of a larger group of more conservative churches. How they keep themselves from being assimilated into the rest is beyond me but they apparently have a strategy.

I've more recently heard of fundamentalist Methodist groups which one might assume have split from the mainline denomination, but I don't know much about them.

Good analysis, 'ladybug' of the problems of the denomination from the very start. By allowing women to preach, they were continuing the Isaiah 3:12 curse, where children and women rule. Any society where that happens is doomed.
And, 'Adriel' one answer to your question about why they continue to call themselves a church: "Gee, we've always done it that way"

From article:-
""from Iowa to Michigan and Texas to Wisconsin, thousands of United Methodists who support LGBT rights are rising up to denounce the denomination’s recent decision to strengthen its ban on gay clergy and same-sex weddings.""

Why do these clearly NON-Christians challenge God and reject the Word of God??

Why not just stop pretending to be a church and call themselves 'Secular' religious groups?

Today Satan is a Methodist!!

2Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not."

The Methodists were doomed from the start, their co-founder, heretic J. Wesley, was a promoter of free will and other grievous errors, including sinless perfection. Even in his day, he allowed and condoned women preachers, "Women preaching followed in the 1760s (pp. 159-160) with Wesley giving them rules (p. 167). Sarah Crosby “travelled nearly 1,000 miles a year, speaking at over 200 public meetings and 600 class or band meetings” (p. 175). Mary Bosanquet, another woman preacher, “married Wesley’s close friend and defender John Fletcher in 1781, and the couple operated virtually as joint ministers in his Madeley parish” (p. 190). As Tomkins says, Wesley “was a pragmatist;” this was “his deepest instinct” (p. 160). source - https://justifiedbychristalone.com/2008/04/11/john-wesley-the-false-apostle-of-free-will/

JOHN WESLEY WROTE: "I do not love God. I never did. Therefore I never believed, in the Christian sense of the word." source - https://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details3.asp?ID=13559

This denomination has never had a solid biblical foundation, for it was birthed from error by Satan's minions.

"A recent PRRI poll found that 62 percent of Americans — and 68 percent of white mainline Protestants — say gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to marry legally. That’s a 10 percentage point increase from three years ago."

PRRI poll October 2016
"With only three weeks remaining in the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton maintains a double-digit lead over Donald Trump among likely voters (51% vs. 36%, respectively)."

When a contrary-to-reality illusion is desired, present a poll that says so.

On Thursday (April 4), a group of 30 clergy, bishops and activists led by megachurch pastor Adam Hamilton will gather in Decatur, Ga., to strategize a future for those churches that feel they cannot remain in a denomination that denies LGBT rights. The group met last week in Dallas and has already planned a longer two-day meeting at Hamilton’s 22,000-member Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kan., next month.

A recent PRRI poll found that 62 percent of Americans — and 68 percent of white mainline Protestants — say gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to marry legally. That’s a 10 percentage point increase from three years ago. Same-sex marriage has been the law of the land since a 2015 Supreme Court ruling that such couples have a constitutional right to marry.

The above is from the article.

Why any bible believing born again Christian would ever attend a Methodist church is beyond me. Their leaders are hirelings and their followers are cultural christians. Methodists are works based and encourage and accept female leaders. The mere fact that they wrestle with these decisions makes them in all probability guilty. What is there to consider regarding LGBT issues?

This like the movie, “ Grizzly Man”, an unstable man welcomes and befriends bears , singing songs , laughing, such a wonderful time. Till an old bear decides he’s hungry and rips open “Grizzly man’s” tent, eats the happy camper and then eats his girl friend.
Do not affiliate yourself with unrepentant , unregenerate visitors who usurp power and authority over the repented believers in the church. The church is for the saved, and for the glory of God.

The conflict may have already hurt the denomination financially. Receipts from member churches, called apportionments, are down 15.6 percent so far this year compared with 2018. Receipts in March alone — one month after the special General Conference in which the church voted to strengthen LGBT restrictions — were down 20 percent over March 2018, according to financial reports posted by the denomination online.....
