New England Annual Conference Report 2004:  Pro-homosexuality Wreckoncilers Parade Symbol of Eternal Death in God's House

Thursday Afternoon Business - Demonstration

During the presentation by the General Conference delegation, the slow pounding of a drum signaled a break in the report for an otherwise silent protest. Many persons came down the center aisle, went across the front of the chapel, and returned up the sides. Several persons carried two coffins. This was a protest against the supposed unity found at General Conference, in a time when many issues remain unresolved and highly contested -- among them, the issues of homosexuality and United Methodist clergy. At the end of the brief demonstration, the two coffins, covered with banners bearing the word ""Peace" remained at the front of the chapel, just before the worship center.  (see photo)
