May 08, 2013

NEW YORK (UMNS) — New York Area Bishop Martin D. McLee notes because of confidentiality requirements he cannot go into detail about
the case involving the Rev. Thomas Ogletree, a retired professor and elder facing charges under church law. Ogletree officiated at the same-sex wedding of his son in October. The bishop reminds church members that "As United Methodists, we are not a one-issue denomination." Read Bishop McLee's letter here.
