United Methodist Church Drops Ban on ‘Self-Avowed Practicing’ Gay Clergy

The United Methodist Church decided on May 1 to drop the denomination’s 40-year ban on gay clergy.

Via UM News:

Without debate, General Conference has removed The United Methodist Church’s ban on the ordination of clergy who are “self-avowed practicing homosexuals” — a prohibition that dates to 1984.

General Conference during the morning plenary approved the change alongside 22 pieces of legislation on the consent calendar, which allows delegates to pass multiple petitions in bulk if they have overwhelming support in legislative committee and have no budgetary or constitutional impact.

The vote on the consent calendar was 692-51, with approval at 93%.
