Albert Mohler: Methodists Say “No” to the Sexual Revolution

The United Methodist Church has defied mainline Protestant history by saying “no” to the sexual revolution in a crucial vote.

The news came as a result of action at the St. Louis meeting, there was a special general conference of the United Methodist Church—the last mainline Protestant denomination that had not fully surrendered to the LGBTQ revolution.

One day Congress will wake up and notice its primary powers are lost.
