One reason for the lopsided vote is that United Methodist General Conference includes delegates from other United Methodist conferences throughout the world. More here.
Meanwhile, Billy Graham has put his stamp of approval on the proposed North Carolina Amendment 1, that would enshrine discrimination against LGBT citizens in the state’s constitution.
