Letter: Alum calls on Divinity School to support LGBTQ+ students

(11/15/19 5:00am)

I was pleased, though saddened, to see the report of the failure of my alma mater, The Divinity School of Duke University, to address adequately the continuing discrimination within The United Methodist Church regarding people who are LGBTQ+.  This discrimination, which I will call institutional bigotry, prevents people who are LGBTQ+ from being ordained in ministry in The UMC, further preventing clergy from conducting a same-sex marriage and holding same-sex marriages in UM church facilities.  At this point, United Methodist Church law is discriminatory, biblically unfounded, theologically bankrupt, and separated from the ways of God.
