The Methodists who want to split the church over gay rights must work harder. The church’s General Conference voted 869-41 yesterday against splitting, The New York Times says, but the conservatives are going to keep trying for divorce.
“They say the church is so deeply divided over homosexuality that the ‘covenant’ that holds it together has already been broken,” the Times reports.
Deeply divided, yes. Like a pitcher’s mound in Kansas towers over the rest of the state.
