Why United Methodists Should Split Over Same-Sex Marriage
United Methodist Church There's a sharp division among the United Methodist Church—so sharp, indeed, that it threatens to slice the second-largest Protestant denomination in the United States in half. And maybe that's just what needs to happen.

Don't get me wrong.

We previously covered how a group of 80 pastors is suggesting the United Methodist denomination is facing an imminent split because of an inability to resolve long-standing theological disputes about sexuality and church doctrine.

"We can no longer talk about schism as something that might happen in the future. Schism has already taken place in our connection," said the Rev. Maxie Dunnam, a retired president of evangelical Asbury Theological Seminary in Kentucky, who joined the statement.
