UMC Clergy Member to Be Tried for Being ‘Practicing Homosexual’
The Iowa Conference Committee on Investigation has decided that United Methodist Church (UMC) clergy member, Rev. Anna Blaedel, will face a trial. Blaedel has made no secret that she is an “out, queer, partnered clergy,” and is consequently facing discipline for violating the UMC’s rules which stipulate a clergy member cannot be “a self-avowed practicing homosexual.”

“I receive this news with deep sadness and grief,” Blaedel wrote in a Facebook post reacting to the committee’s decision. “I grieve what and who the Iowa Annual Conference and UMC is becoming. Is this the church you want to be?”

According to United Methodist News (UMN), Blaedel has been charged under Paragraph 2702.1 in The United Methodist Book of Discipline. There, the Book of Discipline states that a clergy member may be tried for a variety of offenses, one of which is “practices declared by The United Methodist Church to be ...

I don't know if the UMC is a church or a religious club.

Probably the latter.

On this one Jim Lincoln is right.

1). Putting aside her homosexuality / lesbianism, this lady is already disqualified from pastoral ministry, because she is a woman. The Lord established a clear order for the church, and while women can do many valuable and wonderful things in the church, leadership in the church is to be exclusively male.

2). This lady is, therefore, not only disqualified automatically for the pastorate, but due to her rebellious attitude and worse, her lesbianism, she is actually disqualified from being an ordinary church member, and should be excommunicated as a member from her congregation for that, until she repents from and renounced that attitude and lifestyle. Heresy is also involved as she teaches that the Bible affirms her lifestyle, which it most definitely does not. She would also have to renounce her teaching on that as well.

3). Sadly the UMC is in a real mess here, while it is welcome that some of the membership actually follow the Bible and what it says.

4). This lady does not need a denominational trial, but a church discipline administered by the local elders of her congregation. The UMC does however need to be very firm in this matter, without any ado, and get back to the scriptural standards.

As a woman she is not fit to be a pastor for that reason no matter if she was sexually pure, (Women Preachers)

As a practicing homosexual she should be kicked out of the church even she was just a member❗ One can't be a practicing homosexual and still be a member of a valid Christian Church

1st Corinthians 6:9 Or don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit God’s Kingdom? Don’t be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexuals,
10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor extortionists, will inherit God’s Kingdom.
11 Some of you were such, but you were washed. But you were sanctified. But you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God.---WEB
