It is the position of Building Christ's Body that the ordination of openly/actively homosexual pastors/priests/bishops represents a departure so far from catholic Christian orthodoxy that any denomination that endorses such ceases to be recognizably Christian. This list is compiled from denominational websites, and lists those denominations that have proclaimed their desire to leave Christendom by "ordaining" openly/actively homosexual pastors/priests/bishops. In many cases, it is hard to decide which organizations to place here, as many that take this step away from catholic Christian orthodoxy also heap up to themselves other heresies such as theosophy, and are likely not to be thought of as "Christian" by even the irreligious. Those on this list represent those that are still widely viewed as "Chistian" denomintions, despite having clearly and recognizably departed from the Christian faith.

Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
Episcopal Church
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Mennonite Church USA
Presbyterian Church (USA)
United Chuch of Christ
United Methodist Church
Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Communiy Churches

Neal Davis (ps. Turin Turambar: @admin What I mean is that I don't know which denoms have been assessed and NOT found wanting. We need to track those as well.

Neal Davis (ps. Turin Turambar: @admin If so, needs to be some sort of threshold, recalling the old saw "let's make like a Baptist church and split."

Neal Davis (ps. Turin Turambar: @admin 7DAs, some Quakers (very few I admit), some Reformed, others seem solid on these issues.

Neal Davis (ps. Turin Turambar: @admin On further consideration, I suppose one could do worse than start with the female pastors list below as well.

Moose Norseman: @abroadandampleroad I hadn't thought of a list of those assessed and not found wanting, however, I believe I checked all of the churches

Moose Norseman: @abroadandampleroad ...on the female pastors list. We can consider that the "Master List" for now.
