Gay jihad in California

"Gay jihad in California" Continued...

Issue: "Daniel of the Year 1998," Dec. 5, 1998

An evangelical leader in the conference, Scott Field, pastor of the 800-member Wheatland Salem UMC in Naperville

since 1979, has mixed feelings about the case and others like it. Spiritual renewal is taking hold in many congregations, and people are turning to Christ, but they "may not want to stick around in a church with connections to a denomination with these kinds of problems," he told WORLD. "The question now is whether the judicial and executive side will enforce the law. If they don't, the only power left to local churches will be the ability to derail the UMC's economic engine."
