United Methodist Church vote keeps gay clergy, marriage bans

Delegates to a conference of The United Methodist Church, America’s second-largest Protestant denomination, have rejected a move to ease the faith’s ban on same-sex marriage and gay clergy. Voters defeated a proposal that would have let regional and local church bodies decide for themselves on gay-friendly policies.

Once you cross that threshold you're not a real Christian denomination anymore, you're a joke. Read your Romans and Leviticus people!

As a Methodist for over 50 years, I am thankful that the Church decided to stay Wesleyan.

It would be Pravda on the Hudson (NYT) that claims banning gay clergy and marriage ceremonies would hurt the Methodist Church. Good on Reuters for sticking to facts.

Wtf? A church that sticks to some principles? And no, they're not stopping you from being gay.

I personally believe religion is fiction but I respect peoples beliefs ... I you don't agree with the values then you don't have to be part of the congregation... plain and simple.
