A group of United Methodists in Oklahoma “are signing a statement in support of marriage equality ahead of an April global policy conference of the church, which prohibits gay marriage.” So far, 62 clergy and 203 members have endorsed the call for “full equality and inclusion to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the life of the Church.” The statement reads: “We joyfully affirm that we will offer the grace of God, and our blessings, to any prepared couple in our ministry context desiring Christian marriage. We are convinced by the witness of God’s love for all people, and are compelled by scripture, tradition, reason and experience to act.” Members of the church’s New York conference circulated a similar measure.
