Update, 5/8/2017: Bishop Karen Oliveto says that she is grateful for “overwhelming support” for her continued leadership in the United Methodist Church. “It’s been really powerful—I’ve learned that people in the pews are really in a different place than the rules of our church,” she told Mother Jones.

Oliveto added that she does not want to see the church schism. She wants LGBT people and young members of the church to know that “they are one of God’s beloved” and “God will find a way where there is none.”

In a 6-to-3 vote that was made public on Friday, April 28, the United Methodist Church’s Judicial Council—its highest court— ruled that the elevation in 2016 of Karen Oliveto to bishop was in violation of church law, because she is married to another woman.
