KL slams pastor's plan to marry male partner in New York

By Teo Cheng Wee, Regional Correspondent KUALA LUMPUR - A Malaysian pastor's announcement that he and his male partner are getting married has led the local authorities to warn that this could cause social problems in the country. Pastor Ou Yang Wen Feng, 41, revealed in a recent interview that he is planning to wed his American partner Phineas Newborn III, 47, in New York by the end of this month. The state legalised same-sex marriages in June. That would then be followed by ceremonies in both Malaysia and the United States, where the two currently live. Mr Ou Yang is studying for a doctoral degree in theology and serves at the Metropolitan Community Church in New York, while Mr Newborn is a Broadway musical producer.
