>(Note that the UMC filed two briefs in the Dale case -- one by the Church
proper in support of Dale, and one by the UMM in support of the BSA.
that for solid, unequivocal principles?!?)
Just for clarity from the amicus of the United Methodist Men:
"Neither the United Methodist Men or The GBS (General Board of Church
and Society) speaks for the entire denomination. That right belongs
exclusively to the the Church's General Conference."
The Church's General Conference ("the Church proper") is the body that
voted not to get involved by not supporting the UMM. The issuue of
supporting the GBCS position supporting Dale did not come up.
