Minister Fired for Pro-Gay Column

"Gay and lesbian Christians are no different than the rest of us. They deserve full equality in the church and in society, for they are my brothers and sisters, people for whom Christ died." So wrote the Reverend Jeff Falter in a Feb. 26 article for the Inter-Mountain, a local Elkins, W.Va paper.

Last Sunday members of his church voted 100-72 requesting that the Presbytery of West Virginia dismiss Falter. The Reverend and his family will have until the end of the year to move out of the manse next to the church, where they currently live.
