An interesting ministerial case (music minister) from Minnesota. Among
other things it dramatizes the proposition that the ministerial exemption
has nothing to do with the tenets of the defendant church. The defendant
Methodist congregation that was held exempt from sexual-orientation
discrimination laws was a "reconciling" congregation, one that proclaims
itself welcoming of lesbians, gays, and bisexuals as parishioners and staff.
