LGBTQ Policy

Unclear: Non-Affirming

"You Must Be Dreaming: Gay Marriage" (Sermon by Rob Fuque, Jan 2015) Listen starting at 26:35.

Excerpt: "If a person is made by God the way they are, it's not a sin, I don't believe Jesus would look at it that way, and I believe the church as a community of a holiness and grace should afford the rights of its services and its blessings to everybody, but I can't make that decision for St. Luke's. I am a United Methodist Pastor and our church law is not there yet."

Notes

This church's denomination, the United Methodist Church, is non-affirming. The church's actively enforced policy is not located on website's primary pages, but embedded in a sermon dated January 11, 2015, and indicates that the church will not actively resist its denomination (e.g. officiating same-sex weddings), thus its score.
