Open Letter to United Methodist Bishops in Texas – From Laity

If you are a Texas United Methodist lay person, please consider signing the Open Letter to Texas Bishops, which was written by a team of 5 United Methodist laity representing all 5 conferences in the state of Texas (Texas, Rio Texas, North Texas, Central Texas, and Northwest Texas). It was written by laity – for laity – and is intended to share concerns regarding the exclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons in The United Methodist Church.

The timing of the letter reflects the anticipation of marriage equality reaching Texas as a result of the Supreme Court ruling expected in late June. While the court could issue a partial ruling requiring only that states recognize all marriage licenses from other states, legal experts say a sweeping ruling in favor of marriage equality is more likely. View the letter and the 919 names of Texas United Methodists that have already signed the letter at:
