March 22, 2004 A statement from Bishop Mike Watson and Bishop Lindsey Davis:

The Discipline is the connecting covenant within our Church. We support The Discipline and on this issue we believe that The Discipline is clear. We are profoundly disappointed in the recent church trial court decision in the Seattle Area. It is a clear sign of rebellion when a group chooses to flagrantly ignore The Discipline, substituting their own perspective for the corporate wisdom of the General Conference. While we as bishops have neither voice nor vote at General Conference, we call upon elected General Conference delegates to go to Pittsburgh in April prepared to discuss this situation and to consider an appropriate response which will respect our connectional covenant.
