      A difficult conversation: United Methodist [Wisconsin Annual] conference
      delegates discuss homosexuality

      It was not an easy conversation.



      In the circle were a pastor, a couple in their 70s from Richland County and
      Steve Webster, who wore a rainbow bandanna on his head and a multicolored
      stole to show his support for gay clergy. They all were members of the
      United Methodist Church, and the topic was homosexuality.



      The couple were surprised when Webster, 59, mentioned he and his husband of
      30 years had raised three children. But the man said he had never been
      concerned with other people's sexuality. The woman worried about her
      granddaughter and how to best support her.



      All agreed afterward it was a good experience.



      The discussion was part of the 2010 Wisconsin Annual Conference of the
      United Methodist Church, a four-day gathering at the La Crosse Center of
      some 900 clergy and lay delegates representing congregations statewide.
