Texas UM Lesbian Wedding Elicits Bishop's Comment But No Action
From: "U.M. Cornet" firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello All, It happened! We are waiting for more news.
One of our sources reports that Bishop J. Woodrow Hearn of the Texas Conference, where
Bering Memorial UMC is located, issued this statement after the service last night:
"The United Methodist Church seeks to minister to the needs of all persons and all
people are welcome in our churches. However, the rules of our church provide that a union
service between same sex partners shall not be performed in our churches nor shall our
ministers conduct such services.
"If a clergy person is accused of being in violation of this rule, the laws of The
United Methodist Church provide a process whereby the complaint is addressed. This same
process also determines what action shall be taken."
