PUGHTOWN, Pennsylvania (AP) -- Last week's defrocking of a United Methodist Church pastor who broke church law by living openly with her lesbian partner was a victory for the denomination's conservative wing. But more broadly, did it signify a decisive turn for the denomination? Conservatives hope so. The church-trial verdict shows "we will not surrender to the popular culture on matters of sexual ethics." That's the contention of Mark Tooley, the Methodist specialist at the conservative Institute on Religion and Democracy.

Sexual ethics? So what is unethical sex? I would think rape qualifies, and knowingly transmitting disease to an unwitting partner, but outside of that, what's unethical about two women living together in a loving enviroment? Methodists, "Frankly, sir, I don't see any method at all."
