Stories From This Week's Episode

Is homosexuality compatible with Christianity? This question is debated fiercely in A Church Divided, a television 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. As the U.S. Supreme Court stands poised to decide the future of same-sex marriage, A Church Divided is a timely examination of a complex and divisive issue.
