United Methodist Church To Consider Gay Question


Gay and lesbian equality activists hope to convince the United Methodist Church’s General Conference to open its doors to the LGBT community as it gathers in Tampa, Florida to make decisions on “everything from pensions to prayer books.” Liberals will argue that a more inclusive UMC could attract young Americans, but conservatives will likely contend that a new policy “could jeopardize the church’s growth in Africa and the Philippines, where homosexuality is denounced.”


The “Doors to Equality” campaign is advocating for the change in the “Book of Discipline” on the issue of marriage equality.
