Gay Weddings in Methodist Churches

United Methodist Church ministers in California have begun conducting weddings for gay and lesbian couples. The Los Angeles Times reports that “Ministers in Santa Monica, Claremont, Walnut Creek and other cities have already performed ceremonies”. The state Supreme Court recently overturned a ban on same-sex marriage. But conducting same-sex weddings violates Methodist church law and bishops are warning there could be disciplinary action taken against ministers who ignore the policy.
