United Methodists Transition from Liberal to Global

posted on May 16, 2012

The United Methodist Church has changed recently; it is “no longer a predominantly liberal U.S. denomination.” By looking at the church through the lens of its debate and “disapproval of homosexual practice,” Mark Tooley, writing for The American Spectator, points out how “United Methodism is fully global in membership,” unlike many other U.S. denominations. He states that it is the globalization that will drive liberalism out of Methodism. With most of the global membership living in Africa, Tooley remarks “in 2016, the Africans will likely have about 40 percent of delegates, making any inroads for sexual liberalism almost impossible.”
