Dear Church,

Bishop Michael McKee sent the following message regarding the decision by the Judicial counsel on the nomination, election, consecration and assignment of Karen Oliveto as a Bishop of the United Methodist Church. Bishop’s response.  

The Judicial Council ruled that the consecration of a gay bishop violates church law but also said Bishop Oliveto will continue as a Bishop of the church until an administrative or judicial process is completed
