This certainly is interesting.  Ukraine Orthodox has split from Russian Orthodox Church, sanctioned by the main Orthodox body in Istanbul.  All political of course (don't mention the war).

 

The Constantinople-Moscow split is a difficult issue for many Orthodox churches in Eastern Europe, Mr Shterin says. And their leaders will have to take sides.

The Serbian Church is close to Moscow; the Greek Church less so, but many Greek clergy feel close to both Russia and Serbia.

I know the topic is about the Russian Orthodox church v. Ukraine Orthodox church.

However, I read that the United Methodist General Conference is having a special session this month, February 2019, to vote on a plan regarding same-sex marriage and the acceptance of LGBTQ clergy in the church.

 

United Methodist was founded in 1968 and is the second largest Protestant denomination behind Southern Baptist.

 

One plan under consideration is to let each congregation decide for themselves. Perhaps a name change will be in order? The Methodist Cafeteria church? Pay at the door - Pick and Choose as you wish.

Everytime this still gets me in bewielderment, to think they think Jesus or God approves of such.

This was why my husband came out of UK's RAF as a conscientious objector. He saw this going on there. In fact a British clergyman becoming a pastor in the RAF can automatically get the high rank of Wing Commander - good wages and perks as well.

 

My husband was reading the Bible himself - he was not a JW when he got honorable discharge as a conscientious objector from the Royal Air Force, Swinderby;Scanton;Finningly;Catterick. They were sad to let him go as he had had 2 promotions and they said he would have made a good sargeant. 2 years later (1977) he was called on by a local pioneer and Circuit Overseer and his study was started, 6 months later baptised and pioneering a year after that - been an elder a number of years now.

"This meeting is the first time the church called a special session on a single topic . . . since 1970. That year, the topic was merging another denomination into the United Methodist Church. This time, the topic is whether to break apart."
