VIDEO: The Other Convention - A Church Votes On Gay Rights
Professor Randall Miller & PSR are featured in a documentary that will appear soon on PBS about the recent UMC General Conference’s deliberations on LGBT rights.
From the producers:
"United Methodists from around the world gather for a convention in Tampa, Florida, where they will decide the future of the church and its official policy on gays and lesbians.
The church currently holds that the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching. Progressive Methodists want to see that statement removed from church doctrine, while conservative evangelical Methodists want to retain the church's traditional stance. Both sides clash at the convention. Who will prevail?
The Methodist convention took place April 24 - May 4, 2012."
