What would you do?
I have questions for credentialed church leaders. If you found out your child or grandchild is gay, would you welcome them into your church? Or would you hold the security of your official position more important than including them? Do you interpret Scripture in light of the teachings of Jesus, who included those not considered worthy of inclusion? What about the [Mennonite Church USA] Forbearance Resolution? If that resolution were followed, would [North Carolina pastor] Isaac Villegas still have his credentials?
Mennonite World Review invites readers’ comments on articles. To promote constructive dialogue, editors select the comments that appear, just as we do with letters to the editor in print. These decisions are final. Writers must sign their first and last names; anonymous comments are not accepted. Comments do not appear until approved and are posted during business hours. Comments may be reproduced in print, and may be edited if selected for print.
