PORTLAND, Ore.—Earlier this week, demonstrators wearing rainbow-patterned stoles marched into the room where thousands of United Methodists had gathered for their much-anticipated denominational meeting in Portland, Ore. They chanted slogans calling for unity. During another meeting, gay-rights supporters, some lying on the floor with their hands and feet bound, called on bishops to change the denomination’s policies on homosexuality.
