Bishop Targeted for Leading the United Methodist Church Toward LGBT Inclusion

Bishop Melvin Talbert stood in front of a crowd of about 200 supporters of full inclusion on May 4 and called for United Methodists to join him in performing pastoral duties to gay and lesbian people, including enacting marriages. Bishop Talbert’s call for what he called “An Act of Biblical Obedience” has now resulted in letters from opponents of LGBT equality asking the United Methodist Church to censure Bishop Talbert. A handful of other bishops who stood with Bishop Talbert have also been targeted by the anti-LGBT group.
