The verdict of the "Committee on Investigation":

Committee quashes two most serious charges against gay Clifton UMC pastor...

The bishop referred the matter to the Committee on Investigation, which considered three possible violations of the denomination’s Book of Discipline:
•That as a “self-avowed, practicing homosexual,” he couldn’t be ordained as a minister;
•That he was living an immoral lifestyle;
•That he was disobedient to church law because he had participated in a same-sex wedding ceremony.
The committee found reasonable grounds to substantiate only the disobedience charge, which Meredith said is the least serious of the three.
Meredith is popular minister in the Greater Cincinnati area. Case in point: Meredith's congregation more than doubled in the first two years after he took over.
