1992-03-15Baptist Minister blesses a gay relationship.

Reverend Mahan Siler, pastor of the Pullen Memorial Baptist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, blesses the same-sex union of Kevin Turner and Steven Churchill. This action provoked a negative response from the Raleigh Baptist Association and the Southern Baptist Association, both of which expelled the Pullen congregation from their association. The Pullen congregation has continued to support policies inclusive of LGBT people, including having a lesbian pastor.
