美國一聯合衛理宗牧師主持同性婚姻,現甘願接受宗派審訊

-100%+

The Rev. Michael Tupper notified his bishop Sept. 28 that he would not agree to a just resolution in a same-sex wedding complaint. His decision opens the way for a process that could culminate in a church trial.

The West Michigan Conference pastor said he would plead guilty at a church trial and he would not contest any penalty determined by a jury of his clergy peers. In a notarized letter, he also said he would not use an attorney and would waive his right to an appeal.

“God’s called me to highlight the need for a change in our Discipline at General Conference,” he said in another longer letter to Bishop Deborah Lieder Kiesey. “But God has also made it clear to me that I should be willing to pay the price for my disobedience to the present Book of Discipline.”
