The Baltimore-Washington Conference of the United Methodist Church sponsored the discussion, which is timely given the recent slaying of Matthew Shepard, a gay University of Wyoming student, and a Supreme Court ruling allowing Cincinnati to keep anti-gay laws on its books. The slaying has put hate crime legislation atop of national and state political agendas and has drawn attention to prejudice against gays.
