So, I’m trying to piece this together from threads and bits and pieces. You with better Internet skills than I can help out.
It appears that on Feb. 26 a guest preacher at a chapel service at United Methodist-related Boston University School of Theology included in a sermon that the preacher supported the United Methodist Book of Discipline on matters of sexuality. (Here’s a blog post about the sermon. I cannot find a link to the sermon or even the name of the preacher.)
This led to an outcry among students who felt attacked by this sermon, which led to the school’s spiritual and community life committee issuing the following statement.
While we recognize that denominations are divided on this issue, we are not. We, as a school are clear that the gifts that the church needs today will come from all of us. And we are convinced that there is no room for messages of exclusion and calls for Christian unity at the expense of our LGBTQIA sisters and brothers. We recognize that there are times when communities are called to speak loudly, prophetically, and affirmatively with those who are marginalized in an unjust world. This is one of those times.
