Many are disappointed

Thank you, E. Daniel Martin, for “Why Lancaster Conference Got an Annulment” (Letters & Comments, March 12). He clearly states why so many are disappointed with Mennonite Church USA and leaving it in unprecedented numbers. As an example of my disappointment, MC USA policy states that pastors are not permitted to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies. Unfortunately, some pastors have chosen to ignore this guideline and the Scriptures on which it is based. Not only are they permitted to keep their credentials, but some are elevated to leadership positions in the church. It seems MC USA is more interested in conforming to the secular culture and the politically correct environment than in remaining true to its historical and biblical roots.
