Disturbing solidarity

Daily Item

---- — It was disturbing to read the article in Monday's Daily Item of 31 pastors associated with the United Methodist Church who will jointly officiate the marriage of same sex couples next month, in violation of their church doctrine, showing solidarity with a colleague facing possible dismissal for presiding at his gay son's wedding.

Unfortunately too many liberal pastors have invaded the church with programs and ideas and turned it into a human institution rather than the living Body of Christ. More states and nations may legalize same-sex marriage, but human laws cannot "make moral what God has declared immoral."
