The complete text of the letter from Charles Sineath ("A") and all aspects of this case are at the internet website located at: Cover Letter from Charles Sineath, [pastor of] FUMC-M, Georgia: "The material in this report is not meant to be an indictment of The United Methodist Church. - Charles Sineath You made a statement that Charles Sineath is not an effective leader due to the apportionment withholding. Please understand, Bishop Davis, that Charles Sineath did not make this decision on his own. I found it in the love, preaching, teaching, integrity, leadership and humility of my Senior Pastor, Charles Sineath. Cc: Charles Sineath, Pastor Sineath, who turns 60 this month, is five years from retirement. The announcement comes nearly a year after the church voted to withhold $58,427 in funds from the local conference over the national church's stands on social issues, including homosexuality. But the Rt. Rev. Lindsey Davis, bishop of the North Georgia Conference, said in a release that Sineath is just one of 50 ministers in the conference who will be reassigned this year. Jenkins acknowledged that the transfer would be linked by supporters of Sineath to the dispute, but said the action was simply a personnel matter. Since then Sineath has announced his plans to retire in June from the United Methodist ministry. "Now that Charles has been taken out of the picture and is not being reappointed, the action reflects what the board wanted to do a year ago."....[People] in the church...believe the cabinet's decision to move Sineath was...punitive action. Sineath has advocated the withholding of certain general church apportionments because "conscience compels us not to be part of what is displeasing to God. "We're not dealing with persnickety things," he said in an earlier interview. "As of 1 A. M. EDT today, Charles (Sineath) has been relieved of all responsibilities, by Mr. Davis [i.e., Bishop Davis], as pastor of FUMC-Marietta. - Source: Internet, E-mail from B. J.
