Clarity (81297-FA-¶612.19)

Amend ¶612.19 as follows:  
19.  To ensure that no annual conference board, agency, committee, commission, or council shall give United Methodist funds to any gay caucus or group that promotes the acceptance of homosexuality, or otherwise use such funds...

Rationale

In light of some confusion that has arisen about the precise applicability of this provision, this addition would make it clear that this also applies to contributions to groups that are not primarily “gay caucuses” but which devote a significant portion of their work to promoting the acceptance of homosexuality.
