Church Divided

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

Is homoexuality compatible with Christianity? This question is debated fiercely in this documentary, narrated by Peter Coyote and hosted by Scott Shafer. This special report takes viewers to the United Methodist Church's global convention in Tampa, Florida. There, United Methodist delegates from around the world gather to vote on the future of their church and its official policy on gays and lesbians. Progressive Methodists want to amend church doctrine by removing language which states that homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching, but conservative Methodists want to retain the church's traditional stance. Other mainline Protestant churches, including the Presbyterians and Episcopalians, split over this divisive question. The question now is will it divide the Methodist Church as well? As the U.S. Supreme Court stands poised to decide the future of same-sex marriage and England and France debate the question in their parliaments, "A Church Divided" is a timely examination of a complex and crucial issue.
