Rev. Frank Schaefer
A complaint against 36 United Methodist ministers who blessed a same-sex wedding in Philadelphia in defiance of church law has been resolved.
Church officials have defrocked a United Methodist pastor from Pennsylvania who officiated his son’s gay wedding in Massachusetts.
Rev. Frank Schaefer, in dark suit, was surrounded by supporters after annoucing he won’t abide by Methodist Church rules banning same-sex marriages and won’t give up his credentials.
A Pennsylvania pastor who officiated a same sex marriage has reportedly been found guilty of “violating the church’s law” and “breaking the law and order of the United Methodist Church.”
