Transcript MCC full-fledged in Houston Incidents Focus Attention on by Jim Jaynes Everyone remembers when a person, calling himself a representative of the Metropolitan Community Church ame to Houston and started a church study group here. After holding a few Bible Raps and collecting a little money the imposter disappeared. Ever since that time, gays in Houston have been understandably wary when they heard of church-related activities. Consequently, Houston is the largest city in the country with no MCC for gay Christians. But the Metropolitan Community Church is coming to Houston. An MCC Study Group, with Mr. Arnold Lawson assigned as Worship Coordinator, has operated in Houston for the last several months; and has been recognized by the General Conference of the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches, held August 30 - September 2 in Atlanta, Georgia. Rev. Richard Vincent, Pastor of the Dallas MCC and District Co ordinator of the West Central District of the Fellowship, has authorized an intensive program to bring Houston gays a place to worship in freedom and security. Robert E. Miller, on the Min- istrial Staff of the Church in Dallas as an Exhorter, and qualified to administer the Sacraments when he is in Houston, will conduct the first full-fledged religious service on September 23. All interested persons, gays and straights alike are welcome to participate in these services. For information please call Mr. Arnold Lawson at 781- 1940.

"What is most disturbing," said the Rev. Richard Vincent, minister of a church whose congregation is predominantly homosexual, "is there are people who think that the mere fact that a person is a homosexual is reason enough for him to have turned into a perverted murderer. This is notonlygrossly unfair, it is grossly untrue." "They keep trying to tell us homosexuality is a victimless tiling and not a crime," said one man in a downtown office. "Well, just look at those murders. Is that victimless? You ought to string them all up." "And when some man goes out and rapes a young girl, do we go out and string up all the heterosexuals?" someone answered. A LOCAL psychologist feels the main problem is misunderstanding.
