Pastors on our side
There will be a marriage protection amendment on the ballot in Minnesota in 2012. At the Minnesota Annual Conference (statewide meeting) of the United Methodist Church they are getting ready -- and in a way that is so good to hear. Forty active pastors signed a statement saying they would marry same-sex couples. The presiding bishop reminded them the denomination rules forbid pastors from officiating in gay weddings, but agrees there is no harm in signing the statement.
