USA, Pennsylvania: Church “Trial” for Pastor Who Officiated At Gay Son’s Wedding

Monday, September 30th, 2013

Pastor Frank SchaeferA Methodist pastor in Pennsylvania who officiated at the wedding of his gay sn is being put on trial by the church.

Pink News reports:

Frank Schaefer, a pastor of the Zion United Methodist Church, said in an interview on Monday with the Patriot News that he felt he was following Christian principles, when he agreed to help his son and his partner marry, back in 2007. “We just love him so much it was an honour to be asked. Had I said no to him, it would have negated all the affirmations we gave him for all those year…that we believe you are just as worthy and precious in God’s sight as anybody else,” he said. Schaefer may face disciplinary action, or may be defrocked for officiating at the wedding. “To me this is a human rights issue,” he continued. “If being of a certain sexual orientation is who you are as a person, if that is genetic, who are we to say that these persons do not have the same rights as everybody else.”

So much for Christian love. And if this happened in 2007, why is it just coming up now?
