UMC jury to decide punishment for Osceola priest

Email

KAUKAUNA - A jury of 13 United Methodist ministers will decide today how a priest from Osceola should be punished, for breaking church rules by marrying a same-sex couple.

The jury heard testimony for parts of two days in Kaukauna, before it found the Reverend Amy DeLong guilty of performing a wedding of two lesbians in 2009. But on a 12-1 vote, the jurors found her innocent on a second-charge of being a "self-avowed practicing homosexual."
