Sexually Active Lesbian Commended After OK'd by UM Appeals Committee To Continue As Church Pastor
February 6, 2003
Last week I sent you a United Methodist News Service story:
Appeals committee upholds decision in lesbian pastor case
Here is an Associated Press story on that decision.
LESBIAN METHODIST MINISTER CAN RETURN TO MINISTRY
(Seattle-AP) -- A Methodist minister from Seattle who told her bishop that she's been in a lesbian relationship has a green light to resume her ministry.
A United Methodist appeals committee has voted to uphold the dismissal of complaints against the Reverend Karen Dammann.
A minister on the appeals committee said that instead of being punished, the Reverend Dammann should be "commended for her courage and honesty."
But a dissenter on the appeals panel said they'd "made and egregious error of church law by dismissing the complaint."
