Sat, Feb 16, 2013 -- 1:00 AM A Church Divided

Is homosexuality compatible with Christianity? This question is debated fiercely in this documentary narrated by Peter Coyote and hosted by Scott Shafer. It takes viewers behind the scenes of the United Methodist Church's global convention in Tampa, Florida. At stake is the church's official policy on gays and lesbians. Progressive Methodists want to amend church doctrine declaring homosexuality incompatible with Christian teaching, but conservative Methodists want to retain the church's stance calling homosexuality a sin.
