The Judicial Council Rulings on the Traditional Plan
April 29, 2019 / By UNY Communications
In its April 23-26 meeting, the United Methodist Church’s Judicial Council reviewed the Traditional Plan, which was approved the Special Session of General Conference in February. This plan retains the current stance of the Book of Discipline regarding same-sex marriage and the ordination of practicing homosexuals.
The Judicial Council ruled that seven of petitions of the newly adopted Traditional Plan remain unconstitutional, and the rest of the plan is valid as church law.
