Pro-homosexuality Conference Financial Woes May Be Motivation For Attempts To Take Over Christian Campground

Why, o Why, don't you part company with this rebrobate conference? There are many people who would help you make DesPlaines a spiritual center if only you would break your ties with the UMC.

This article saddens me. When a campground claiming to be United Methodist not only discriminates based on sexual orientation, but also tries to shut out a straight family who is supportive of allowing the gay couple to stay in the campground, well, something has gone a rye. What is missing in this action is the gospel of Jesus Christ. This article makes it look like the conference is doing the damage. It looks to me like the conference is merely trying to preserve a little dignity for the United Methodist Church when one of its campgrounds takes on actions that are analogous to the Ku Klux Klan. Jesus said "As you've done it unto one of the least of these you've done it unto me." Those at the campground who closed the door on Christians who are protected by the Discipline, regardless of whether one believes in their sexual orientation, are those who have disobeyed the United Methodist Church and have gone against the gospel of Jesus Christ. If they do not repent of their discriminatory actions, they will simply lose what they so desperately tried to hang on to. I pray that they repent, lest they lose a lot more than a campground (see Matthew 25). The article "Pro-homosexuality Conference Financial Woes May Be Motivation For Attempts To Take Over Christian Campground" is another embarrassing public display of a prejudiced group of people trying to justify their sin of inhospitality by pointing the blame elsewhere. Having stayed as guest once at the campground and having grown up in another United Methodist campground in Michigan, I find this case all the more tragic. It also seems ironic that this article is posted on a web page associated with the Confessing Movement, since the Confessing Movement claims that obeying the Discipline is of extreme importance. Does the Confessing Movement want to associate with a group that disobeys the United Methodist Discipline by discriminating against people based on sexual orientation? Deeply Concerned,
