The congregation of Raleigh’s Pullen Baptist Church has made a decision to stand behind their pastor on a very controversial issue.  The church’s 650 member congregation released a statement saying that they disagree with the current North Carolina law that prohibits same sex marriages and their pastor Nancy Petty will no longer sign marriage certificates for heterosexual couples if she can not do the same thing for gay couples.  The statement said “As people of faith, affirming the Christian teaching that before God all people are equal, we will no longer participate in this discrimination.”

Pastor Petty who is openly gay herself said earlier this year that she felt a burden by not being able to marry homosexual couples. Petty said she will continue to perform marriage ceremonies, but will not sign the marriage license required to make the marriages legally binding.

In a statement to the News-Observer Petty stated “Their counter-witness to those who preach about a God whose love is exclusive and unwelcoming is nothing short of amazing grace.  The church is attempting to make a stand for gay rights and hopes to convice the government to recognize unions between members of the same sex.
