Just as you've been saying for years, that the homosexuals and their liberal cohorts plan to use baptism as their route to homosexual acceptance. I recall how the Jude moderates lambasted you for making such an "unfounded" assertion.
1. The Cost of Membership, Rev. Mark E. Williams, [confessed openly gay] pastor, Woodland Park UMC "All Christians are called through their baptism to [a] ministry of servanthood in the world to the glory of God and for human fulfillment," (2000 Discipline, ¶125). As the United Methodist Church persists in baptizing infants regardless of the sexual orientation that they will grow to discover in themselves, what responsibilities are applied and implied in the sacrament of baptism? This workshop will survey current literature on sexual orientation, baptism, and the full rights and responsibilities of UMC membership in the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. Come to discuss, be challenged, learn and grow in claiming your own place in the Body of Christ as expressed in the UMC.
