70 United Methodist clergy in the state of Minnesota have signed a statement saying they will marry gay couples.
“We joyfully affirm that we will offer the grace of the Church’s blessing to any prepared couple desiring Christian marriage,” reads the statement introduced this week at the 2011 Minnesota Annual Conference.
“We are convinced by the witness of others and are compelled by Spirit and conscience to act. We thank the many United Methodists who have already called for full equality and inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the life of the Church.”
The Rev. Bruce Robbins, pastor of Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church in Minneapolis, read the statement to clergy Wednesday during a time of personal privilege, the United Methodist News Service reported. By the end the day, 40 clergy members had signed the statement. As of Friday, the number of signers reached 70.
“We repent that it has taken us so long to act,” continues the statement, entitled “Equality for All in Christian Marriage.”

Sodoma and Gomorra was destroyed because Abraham could not find 10 godly people in the twin cities. Homosexual perverts came to the house of Lot, and tried to rape him.
They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”
The Bible is very clear that men shall not have sex with men, and women not have sex with woman.
The Jewish Apostle Paul copies the Law of Moses, and calls this kind of sexual behavior a perversion. People who do not repent from such act, shall not inherit the Kingdom of God. Since there is only two exits from life, they will have to spend eternity in Hell.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men
To bless sin is wickedness. 70 pastors of the United Methodist denomination in the US had made Satan their father, and do his work in the “name of Jesus”.
1 Timothy 1:9-11
We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine 11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.
In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.
If you are a homosexual. I pray that Jesus will give you dreams and visions about the opposite sex. Only Jesus can save you. Amen.
