Ain’t I a Christian?

Theological, Moral, and Ecclesiological Ground of the Simple Plan

Silence often is mistaken for consent. As The United Methodist Church prepares for the 2019 Special General Conference, and the One Church Plan gains momentum, we cannot remain silent. We cannot offer our blessing to a compromise plan that still permits discrimination against LGBTQIA+ Christians. While we recognize and give thanks for the hard and holy work done by the Commission on a Way Forward and the Council of Bishops, we lament any denominational future that does not seek justice for all Christians, and so we call on our denomination to seek yet a better way forward.

All three plans proposed by the Commission on a Way Forward have significant theological, moral and ecclesiological flaws: the Traditionalist Plan expands enforcement of oppression; the Connectional Church Plan resurrects the racist logic of the Central Jurisdiction; and the One Church Plan sanctions segregation regionally. Taken together, these plans either completely eliminate the quintessential connectional nature of our denomination, or keep us on a path towards localized congregationalism or flat out schism. How can we remain a connected denomination if identity-based segregation is condoned and enshrined in our doctrine?

While the compromise One Church Plan may be politically expedient, it remains theologically and morally bankrupt. Although it is better than the denomination’s current position, we reject gradualism as a legitimate strategy in seeking justice. We favor long-term justice over illusory short-term political gains, and we cannot endorse doctrines that favor some over the wellbeing of all. Moreover, we reject false unity and oneness premised on the notion that optional exclusions are necessary for the sake of the whole. We believe, with the Apostle Paul, that no member of the Body of Christ, and no conference of the church, can say to another, “I have no need of you” (1 Corinthians 12:12–27).

We advance and endorse, therefore, The Simple Plan to remove all restrictive language that excludes LGBTQIA+ Christians from full participation in the life of The United Methodist Church. Our experience of God’s blessings in the lives and loves of LGBTQIA+ persons, along with our first General Rule to “do no harm,” ground this proposal. We offer this statement as an act of conscience, biblical obedience, and principled commitment to the love ethic of Jesus Christ.


Human beings have always been fighting for recognition as human beings. We know this to be true of the first tenders of the American soil and its first inhabitants, Native Americans. We also hear it in the heart-wrenching cries of immigrants who have been cruelly torn apart from their loved ones by current U.S. government. During these present days when evil spreads like malignant cancer, once again our denomination, which grounds itself in its Christian identity and social holiness, is prepared to sanction discrimination. How is it that the Church is willing to perform theologically unsound litmus tests to cherry pick who is or is not Christian? Hearing echoes from Sojourner Truth’s groundbreaking “Ain’t I a Woman?” speech, we have come to the point of asking: Does The United Methodist Church not consider LGBTQIA+ members Christians?

Although we are baptized Christians—received by local congregations into full membership through professions of faith and vows of prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness—the Church through the Discipline’s language renders LGBTQIA+ second-class citizens. On the one hand, in Article IV of the Constitution, "The United Methodist Church acknowledges that all persons are of sacred worth"; on the other hand, in the Social Principles, the Church reaffirms the imago Dei in all persons, and then condemns homosexuality. This contradiction, embedded in the incompatibility clause, denies the Christianity of queer people.

The United Methodist Church through the Discipline’s language demonstrates its inability to recognize the expansive presence of God’s life and giftedness in non-normative persons. Once again in its history, The UMC is immobilized and diminished in the service of God. We invoke into our condition the irateness of Frederick Douglass in his address “The Meaning of the Fourth of July for the Negro”: "your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy—a thin veil to cover up [the brutal derelictions against our humanity]."

At the July 2018 convocation of the Love Your Neighbor Coalition in St. Louis, Missouri, titled after the hymn “For Everyone Born,” renewed dissent to this discrimination emerged, inspired by plenary addresses, Bible Study, and worship. Building upon decades of organizing and resistance, and in view of the momentous decisions that will be made in February, we declare the inadequacy of the compromise One Church Plan, and we propose a simpler, more just alternative. Underlying this One Church Plan is the presumption that ‘church unity’ must come at all costs and that the preservation of The UMC, in its current form, is paramount.

We stand firmly on the righteous teachings of Ada María Isasi-Díaz who reminded us in her classic work Mujerista Theology--A Theology for the Twenty-First Century: “Mutuality asks us to give serious consideration to what the other is saying, not only to respect it but to be willing to accept it as good for all” [emphasis ours]. There can be no unity or oneness when harm is continuously done to members of our so-called united body. We profess that the approach of “church-unity-at-all-costs” exchanges theological integrity for political expediency and does harm to those already marginalized in our beloved church:

  • Historically, we have been down a similar path before. In 1939, when the Methodist Episcopal Church and Methodist Episcopal Church, South, reunited after slavery, the compromise position resulted in the segregation of African Americans. Not only does the Connectional Church Plan call for the creation of non-geographical jurisdictions, but also the One Church Plan would allow conferences the ability to choose discrimination against LGBTQIA+ Christians. Similar to the Church's past sanctioning of segregation, both plans protect the Church’s choice to maintain the superiority of heterosexuals in certain geographic locations. In allowing “Boards of Ordained Ministry and bishops who choose not to credential or ordain self-avowed practicing homosexual persons” permission to object to and deny the call of God upon the lives of LGBTQIA+ persons, the One Church plan would give license to the geographical segregation of its clergy members and ongoing harm to the full body of Christ. This is antithetical to the Christian faith and the gospel message of love found in the ministry of Christ. As Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. ... Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

  • Ethically, we appeal to our Church to choose to do no harm. We implore our leaders to awaken their consciences to the brutal consequences of granting permission for discrimination justified by blasphemous faith claims about inherent human superiority. This false logic underpinned theological arguments supporting the global slave trade and U.S. slavery, and today is demonstrated in the behavior and words of the murderers of trans women. Such blasphemy requires repentance and not restoration in new guises.

  • Theologically, we find the concept of “conscientious objection” embedded in the One Church Plan to be dubious and duplicitous. Jesus is the Word of God, and the Word sets free those who are oppressed. The Bible gives us clues to the fullness of Jesus, who is God-consciousness. But the totality of Jesus Christ, who is the Word of God, always transcends what we find written in human words. It is for this reason that the earliest Christian theologians set forth the example of interpreting scripture according to life, character, and continuing revelation of Jesus. The United Methodist Doctrinal Standards affirm this mode of interpretation. In particular the “Confession of Faith of the Evangelical United Brethren Church” states plainly in Article IV: “We believe that the Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, reveals the Word of God” (2016 Book of Discipline, ¶ 104, page 73). We stand firmly on the broad theological perspective of John Wesley who “believed that the living core of the Christian faith was revealed in Scripture, illumined by tradition, vivified in personal experience, and confirmed by reason” (2016 Book of Discipline, ¶ 105, page 82).

  • Scripturally, the unity to which we are called is premised on adopting the mind of Christ (Philippians 2:5), and Jesus established the standard for recognizing bearers of the gospel: “you will know them by their fruits” (Matthew 7:15). Institutionalized discrimination against LGBTQIA+ Christians has wrought division and harm, yet queer persons have continued to bear forth the fruits of the Spirit in their lives and in their loving. At present, there is a failure of courage to love within The UMC. It is time, then, that the policies and practices of The UMC be modeled on the wisdom of early Christian communities that declared, "Perfect love casts out fear ... you cannot love God and hate others ... if we love God, we must love others in the faith." (1 John 4:18–21).

  • Intersectionally, we observe in the Traditionalist Plan the impulse toward increased enforcement and policing. If approved, it will harm those already most marginalized in our churches. We know this both from America’s history and present-day, where the logic of ever-expanding policing disproportionately harms people of color. Likewise, the legalistic, punitive spirit of the Traditionalist Plan will exacerbate the distrust and abuses endemic to overlapping systems of discrimination, such as racism, sexism, class, and ableism. Therefore, we unequivocally reject any notion of justice that aims at the policing of already vulnerable bodies and that gives preference to punitive rather than transformative measures of accountability.

  • Ecclesiologically, the Simple Plan preserves the connectional nature of our denomination by striving to uphold shared standards and values of human dignity and divine worth across the connection.

Yes, “there is still a more excellent way,” as the Apostle Paul declared at the start of his famous Love Poem to the churches at Corinth. We seek this way. And we believe that the Simple Plan is the first faithful step along this path.
