Another Ohio College Cuts Ties With United Methodist Church

Officials at the University of Mount Union have ended their 150 year affiliation with the United Methodist Church over renewed bans on LGBTQ clergy and same-sex marriage. 

The private school in Alliance wants a diverse campus and says  the denomination's recent actions don't mesh with those values. Baldwin Wallace University has also cut ties with the church, and Ohio Wesleyan University is reviewing its ties.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
