Changing the Methodist Denomination’s stance on marriage equality

A national campaign for marriage equality in the United Methodist denomination is sending nearly 50 volunteers to attend this year’s UMC General Conference. The group hopes to strike discriminatory language in the Book of Discipline, which prohibits the recognition of the relationships of fellow gay and lesbian United Methodists. Volunteers include Foundry’s choir, invited to sing at the closing ceremonies of General Conference, Doors to Equality advocacy leaders, and pivotal volunteers from allied Methodist social justice based organizations.”
