The United Methodist Church released a statement explaining that there was a level of improper voting at the special session of General Conference last month in which the denomination reaffirmed its official position against homosexuality.

Delegates at the special session voted in favor of a proposal called “The Traditional Plan” that reaffirmed the UMC’s official position labeling homosexuality “incompatible with Christian teaching” and promised stricter enforcement of its ban on same-sex marriage and the ordination of noncelibate homosexuals.

The UMC Executive Committee of the Commission on the General Conference reported Thursday that “a very limited number” of people who were not allowed to vote nevertheless got to cast ballots at the special session.
