    I confess myself ignorant about The Church of the Brethren, but Wikipedia lists them as a example of a traditionally conservative or orthodox organization that *is* supportive. That’s Wikipedia, though, with all the skepticism that warrants.

    “Religious arguments for and against marriage rights for same-sex couples are not always evenly divided among theologically conservative religious groups and liberal groups. While self-identified theological liberal organizations such as the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), support marriage equality, other more conservative and or orthodox organizations including some Mennonite churches, the Church of the Brethren, the Old Catholic Church,[24] and the Church of Sweden[25] also support marriage rights for gay and lesbian persons.[26]“

    Something else struck me in your description: Imagine: Christians who adhere to the New Testament. Who knew?

    There is a small, vocal group pushing LGBT acceptance inside the Church of the Brethren, but the denomination as a whole has not changed its stance, and does not currently support gay marriage.

    Anyone can edit Wikipedia, and apparently someone with an agenda did just that.
