Winston-Salem Journal’s write-up made the point, but it needs to be emphasized: Green Street United Methodist Church pastor Rev. Kelly Carpenter believes gay couples should be married in the Methodist church.

That belief was put into action when in 2013 the Green Street “announced that it would not conduct marriages for heterosexual couples until the denomination allows pastors to conduct same-sex marriages.”

And what does Rev. Carpenter’s support get him? A gay going going over his head to his boss and filing a complaint. Question is how far behind is legal action?
