Anyone hoping to get married in the Trinity United Methodist Church in Kansas City had better hurry – or plan on tieing the knot elsewhere. The church will stop performing traditional weddings this spring because United Methodist rules forbid same-sex unions to take place in its churches. An official with Trinity says between 30 percent and 40 percent of the 275 members of that particular chruch are homosexual, and they think gays and straights should be on the same footing when it comes to marriage. This decision means the church will stop performing straight marriages this spring and will, instead, have special worship celebrations for couples – then have the couples actually get married somewhere else.
