A complaint filed against a Michigan United Methodist Church pastor who officiated a same-sex wedding might lead to a trial.
The Rev. Michael Tupper, pastor of Parchment UMC, knowingly violated the denomination's Book of Discipline which forbids clergy from performing gay weddings.

At the Southern Evangelical Seminary's annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics, Turek hosted a panel discussion on marriage titled "What Do We Do Now?" in which he asserted that Christians and supporters of traditional marriage have to make broader arguments about its benefits to society and family.
