Ithaca United Methodists Respond To Decision to Ban Same Sex Marriages, Ordinations


ITHACA, NY (WSKG) – This week the global meeting of the United Methodist Church voted to maintain a ban on same sex marriages and ordinations. It’s the third largest faith community in the United States. Many American Methodists hoped for a different outcome.

WSKG’s Celia Clarke spoke with Lydia Dolch and Sara Haefli, two lay leaders. They sat down in the sanctuary of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Ithaca a few blocks from WSKG’s studio.
