Dallas church shows peaceful protest against homophobic Methodists

Northhaven Church tweets an image of its altered sign

An LGBTQ-friendly church has covered up the words “United Methodist” on its sign in protest of a decision by the international church organizing body.

Last week General Conference of the United Methodist Church’s voted to reaffirm its anti-LGBTQ teaching that “the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching” and to punish individual churches that violate its ban on same-sex marriages and LGBTQ clergy.

Before service, Reverend Marti Soper promised that nothing would change at the church. Soper wore a rainbow stole.
