Minneapolis pastor and church expelled over gay marriage

I head of individuals being expelled from a church.  But, not a whole church.  I applaud the move though because any church who permits Gay marriage is committing a serious offense against Biblical teachings.  Anyone who argues otherwise simply don't know what their talking about.  

Fox News reports leaders of the Evangelical Covenant Church voted to defrock a Minneapolis pastor and expel his church for permitting gay marriage.
The Rev. Dan Collison had his credentials removed by a 77 percent vote at the Evangelical Covenant Church's annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, on Friday night.

Leaders also voted to expel Collison's First Covenant Church, a founding member of the 134-year-old denomination.

Collison, who became a pastor at First Covenant in downtown Minneapolis in 2009, told the Star Tribune he was "not surprised" but "saddened" after he was voted out.
"I feel grounded in the path we have chosen. I feel grateful for the pastors and churches who stood up for us. I feel compassion to those caught in the middle," Collison said.
