We are NOT in favor of the Ordination of Gay and Lesbian individuals in the Moravian Church

An influential minority within the Moravian church has changed church doctrine incrementally for over thirty years. Through multiple resolutions addressing homosexuality that were not widely publicized or published for widespread congregational consideration; this minority group is attempting to overrule the majority opinion of the people in the Northern Province and advocate the ordination of lesbians and gays into the ministry of the Moravian church; in violation of the Holy Scriptures and tradition. We present this petition so that the leaders of our church will understand there is not a consensus on this issue and that further action taken that contradicts the Bible on this matter, would be an act of human desire and not a mandate from God. While all people are welcome and included in our community, not all people should be leaders within the church.



  • Marilyn Blickensderfer I fear that if this Proposal is allowed to be instituted it would have a profound deleterious effect on the Moravian Church.

  • Weldon Harris "...all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God". Homosexuality is just another manifestation of our desire to exercise our will over the will of our loving Father.

  • Joseph Patashinsky I do not support any agenda in favor of gay or lesbian as leaders in the church as dictated by the book of Jesus Christ. It is a sin period and with Christ's teachings, all sins can be forgiven as long as we accept our sin is against Gods will and we need to refrain from that sin in the future.
