    They want to make room in the pews for new, queerer LGBTQ+ members.

    Any religion can choose their own members and own polity. It will be interesting to see if the Light in the Loafers crowd starts to pack this sanctuary in the frozen north.

    Struggling Minnesota church asks older members to go away

    But they are hoping to attract young families. Doesnt mention LGBT at all. OP is a lie.

    Apparently you missed the other story earlier this month, where the Methodist religion is becoming open to Sodomy. You have to add two and two together. The "young families" that the Methodists are apparently seeking are queer.

    Not necessarily.

    There are a lot of LGBTQ churches out there. The Episcopalianist Religion is still moving along many years after turning gay.

    Invite one group of people to worship elsewhere so another group will want to worship there. What would Jesus say?

    Buttplug is Episcopalian.

    The Bible said it would be like this. I doubt if young families are scared off by a few older people. No doubt it was a group of gaystapo that linked older people and sinful lifestyle rejection.

    No, you lied. The church has denied the story anyway.

    Moving along the road to hell.
    Calling yourself a "church" doesn't make you God's church

    Still can't get over the "disinvited" thing by a church that claims to represent GOD. What sin have they committed?
