Duke University Demands Methodist Church Change Its Beliefs

Duke University, along with 93 other colleges affiliated with the Methodist Church, is calling on the denomination to change its beliefs by embracing “gender identity/expression” and “sexual orientation.”  The members of the National Association of Schools & Colleges of The United Methodist Church (NASCUMC) unanimously called on church leaders to secure full access to all members of the LGBTQ+ community.  The NASCUMC claims that making this change will ensure that “all persons are of sacred worth and equal standing.”  The Methodist Church currently believes that “the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching,” and therefore, does not allow for members of the LGBTQ+ community to be ordained as ministers or serve in the church, according to its Book of Discipline.  Read more: https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/02/03/duke-university-demands-methodist-church-change-its-beliefs/
