Methodist Church votes to allow same-sex marriages

Methodist Church votes to allow same-sex marriages



The Methodist Church has become the largest religious denomination in the UK to permit same-sex marriages.



The Church announced on Wednesday that same-sex couples will be allowed to get married on its premises. After debates on the topic at the Methodist Conference, the proposals to allow same-sex marriages were passed with 254 votes in favor and 46 against.



The Methodist Church said ministers who oppose the changes will not be forced to carry out same-sex marriages.



Dignity & Worth, a campaign group in the Methodist Church, said the vote was a “momentous step on the road to justice and inclusion” after many years of sometimes painful conversations.Latest Post Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
