In conservative Oklahoma, a group of United Methodists are signing a statement in support of marriage equality ahead of an April global policy conference of the church, which prohibits marriage equality. Retired Oklahoma City minister Jim Gragg is collecting signatures and said 62 clergy and 203 members have signed the statement calling for “full equality and inclusion to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the life of the Church.”
