Will Methodist leaders discipline renegade retired bishop?

A retired United Methodist bishop has violated church law in spite of direct advice from denomination leadership not to do so.

As OneNewsNow reported last week, two Alabama homosexuals traveled to Washington, DC, to get married, then returned to Alabama. But they desired a church wedding and invited retired Methodist bishop Melvin Talbert of Tennessee to do the ceremony. He accepted the invitation and performed the ceremony this past weekend in Birmingham.

John Lomperis with The Institute on Religion & Democracy said last week that Talbert’s actions, if he carried through, would show “a complete lack of biblical integrity.” Lomperis also said he expected UMC bishops to file charges against Talbert.
