Malaysian Methodists at odds with UK Church over same-sex marriage – UCA News

The Methodist Church in Malaysia has broken ranks with its British counterpart by refusing to endorse same-sex marriages. In a decision that was deemed “momentous,” the Methodist Conference in the United Kingdom decided last week to change the definition of marriage to include same-sex unions as well with a vote of 254-46 in favor among the 300 delegates. The decision means that ministers of the Methodist Church, which is Britain’s fourth-largest Christian denomination with more than 4,000 churches, can officially perform weddings for same-sex marriages, although they won’t be forced to do so if they oppose such unions out of religious conviction.
