I came across an interesting debate this weekend on the Faith Experience website. Foundry United Methodist Church is located in Washington DC and is undergoing a “summer of discernment” about weather to perform same sex marriages in the church. Washington DC recently opted to allow same sex marriages within the city. Foundry is currently a Reconciling Congregation. The current debate is about the Institute on Religion and Democracy’s displeasure with a group of visiting Bishops invited to speak at Foundry in the month of July. Foundry’s senior Minister Dean Snyder presents Foundry’s side of the issue here. Mark Tooley from the Institute on Religion and Democracy explains why he thinks Foundry is going to far here.
Please let me know what you think.by
