D.C. Church Urges Methodist Body to Drop Charges Against Bishop

A Washington, D.C., United Methodist church that has supported gay and lesbian rights for 27 years urged the United Methodist Church Council of Bishops today to dismiss complaints against a retired bishop who performed a same-sex wedding in Alabama.

The congregation of Dumbarton United Methodist Church urged the denomination’s Council of Bishops to rescind charges against Retired Bishop Melvin G. Talbert, the highest ranking clergyperson alleged to have broken the church’s ban on such ceremonies. The denomination could hold a trial that could remove the bishop’s clergy credentials.
