October 04, 2012

OKLAHOMA CITY (UMNS) — In an opinion piece, A.W. Martin reflects on General Conference's rejection of proposals to change church policies regarding gays, lesbians and transgender people, and suggests that in some cases, "moving on" from the denomination would be preferable to scenarios that include "donnybrooks every four years." Martin notes, "Some of our conservative friends have extended their hands to help us depart in an amicable way. ... (It) is time, as we also shake their hands, to express our thanks, accept their help, move out and move on."
