Methodist Clergy Members: We'll Marry Gay Couples

Ad Feedback

In Minnesota, some 40 United Methodist ministers have announced that they're willing to marry gay couples.
The clergy signed a statement this week at Minnesota's Annual United Methodist Clergy Conference, saying they would "offer the grace of the Church's blessing to any prepared couple desiring Christian marriage."

"Groups have been meeting who want to challenge parts of the United Methodist policy with which we disagree -- that which relates to the lesbian, gay, transgender, and bisexual community and Christian marriage," said the Rev. Bruce Robbins, who serves at Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church in Minneapolis.

Meanwhile, Bishop Sally Dyck said the church forbids same-sex marriage and that clergy who perform such ceremonies could lose their credentials.
