Transcript 2 The Star/Nov. 11,1983 Gay Membership Splits Council of Churches Orthodox churches will "reaccess their situation," according to a spokesman, should the National Council of Churches approve membership eligibility for the Universial Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches, a 27,000 member denomination and haven for gay Christians, reports the Religious News Service. Withdrawing from the NCC is one ofthe options open to the nine orthodox members of the 31-member ecumenical council which voted on the issue Nov. 9. The November vote will grant only eligibility, not membership—that vote will be taken in May 1984. Orthodox representatives say that an affirmative eligibility vote is enough for them to consider separating from the council. Claire Randall, NCC general secretary, said she is "very concerned" about the Orthodox view and the division that may result, and said that the governing board will consider all aspects of the question. The six Eastern and three Oriental orthodox religions have unanimously agreed to withdraw from NCC if the homosexual church is allowed membership. The Metropolitan Church was founded in 1968 by a former Pentecostal pastor for gay church goers- Bible Belt Gays in Baptist Conference Evangelical Outreach Ministries, a Southern-based pro-gay ministry, staffed a booth at a national Southern Baptist Conference on social justice issues held in Atlanta, October 6-8. Prominent over the EOM booth was a large sign proclaiming "Evangelical Outreach Ministries, A Voice for Lesbian and Gay Men in the Bible Belt." The booth featured pro-gay religious and secular works for sale and free literature. Responses to this unprecedented event ranged from "shock" and "grim resignation" to "glad you are here" and even "it's about time we started addressing this issue." EOM spokesperson David Chewn- ing stated, "We are elated at the warm reception we received." THE STAR Circulated in Austin.

The group stages a black-tie dinner annually in Dallas to raise money for political candidates who favor gay-rights issues. John Thomas, chairman of the Dallas Dinner Committee, announced the advisory board members. They will serve for the next year and will be honored at the Human Rights Campaign Fund Black-Tie Dinner at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas Nov. 19. Texas Legislature members named were state Rep. David Cain, state Sen. Lloyd Doggett and state Sen. Oscar Mauzy. Also named were state Agricultural Commissioner Jim Hightower, Other board members, mostly from the Dallas area, are John and Susan Albach, Roger Albright, Don Baker, James C. Barber, Jerry Birdwell, Ed Cloutman, Juanita Craft, Rev. Don Eastman, Dr. John and Harryette Ehrhardt, George Goodwin, Steve Gutow, Anne Hall, Adlene Harrison, Dallas City Councilman James You're Reading THE STAR America's Newest Gay Community Newspaper Hart, Rev. Mark Herbener, Dallas Councilman Craig Holcomb, Eddie Bernice Johnson, Dr. Jesse Jones, Betsy Julian, Cay Kolg, Richard Longstaff, Ricardo Medrano, Ken and Linda Molberg, Judge Barbara Rosenber, Dallas Councilwoman Annette Strauss, Charlotte Taft and Dallas County Commissioner Jim Tyson. Virginia Apuzzo, executive director of the National Gay Task Force, New York Congressman Bill Green, Republican representative for New York's Manhattan Congressional District, will share the speaker's platform at the fund-raiser. Apuzzo is known nationally for her testimony before Congress regarding homosexual rights. She recently appeared as an expert witness on the effectiveness of government programs relating to AIDS funding and patient care. She has appeared on Nightline, the PA/7 Donahue Show and 20/20 as a spokesperson for the gay community. U.S. Rep. Green is co- sponsor ofthe Gay Rights Bill in Congress and is a member of the House Appropriations Committee, which is crucial for considering AIDS funding legislation. The Dallas Dinner Committee's annual $150 per person event benefits the Human Rights Campaign Fund and the National AIDS Federation Lobby Project, according to Thomas. "Visions" is the theme of this year's dinner, borrowing from the lyrics of "Visions" by Mark Franklin Miles of Dallas. The 1982 dinner at the Fairmont raised more than $6000 for the Human Rights Campaign Fund. Invitations for the 1983 dinner have been mailed, according to Thomas, and advance ticket sales netted 240 responses; seating is available for 500 persons. Members of the Dinner Committee are Rick Aishman, Jake Jacobs, Ray Kuc- hling, Jay Oppenheimer, Mike Stewart, John Thomas, William Waybourn and Dickie Weaver. Thomas is also a member of the Human Rights Campaign Fund Board of Directors in Washington, D.C. All proceeds from the dinner will be used to elect candidates determined to work to secure the civil rights of all persons, particularly gay men and women, and by the National AIDS Federation Lobby Project to urge Congress to appropriate more federal funds to find a cure for AIDS.
