The United Methodist Church has found a way to skirt their official position on homosexuality. Rev. Drew Phoenix has done just such a thing. According to reports (I have no carnal knowledge of this) Rev. Ann Gordon had a sex change from female to male. While it is not clear what her orientation was or is, it is clear that it allows homosexuals a significant opportunity to mitigate the controversy of their religious leadership.
Pre-op or Post-op, it doesn't matter. Who's going to check!! So now homosexuals can just call themselves "transgendered" and at least the United Methodist Church will have no problem with it.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Mat 24:24
