Metropolitan Memorial Methodist Church in Washington DC launches "Stop the Trials"
While driving in to a Thanksgiving service elsewhere this morning, I happened to pass the Metropolitan Memorial United Methodist Church on Nebraska Ave in far NW Washington DC, near Ward Circle and in the highest parts of the city. I saw a sign with a rainbow and the words “Stop the trials”. These refer to “trials” within the Methodist denomination for performing same-sex marriage or union ceremonies, or possibly regarding homosexual behavior among clergy itself.
This church is protesting the behavior of its denomination, which it says lags far behind society. Here is its explanation of “Stop the Trials”, link.
