Minister defrocked by United Methodist Church over same-sex marriage but will appeal

The Rev. Frank Schaefer was defrocked Thursday for refusing to abide by the United Methodist Church's policies on homosexuality, writing another chapter in a case that stirred a wider call for social change when he was put on trial for officiating his son's gay wedding.

Schaefer, of Lebanon, Pa., had hoped the church's Board of Ordained Ministers would allow him to keep his credentials, effectively letting him stand as a voice for gay rights in a church deeply divided over its ban on same-sex weddings and gay clergy. Instead, that group met for just 15 minutes at the Norristown offices of the church's eastern Pennsylvania conference before making its decision.

"I said to myself, 'I just cannot see them take my credentials.' I mean, what I did was an act of love for my son," Schaefer said Thursday at a news conference at the First United Methodist Church of Germantown. ...

"I said to myself, 'I just cannot see them take my credentials.' I mean, what I did was an act of love for my son,"

No, what you did Mr.Schaefer was out of contempt for Gods word.

Ah, at least one ex-Methodist should make a comment on this article! Now of course most here know that the United Methodists at the End of the Mainline are getting further and further away from Christianity. The prominent role of a woman bishop, Women Preachers is just one indicator of that.

The false minister's so called feeling and acceptance of his children's heinous sins (no doubt nurtured in his home?) is condemning his children to hell, when not pointing out The Bible Says Homosexuality is Sin, but most assuredly one that keeps you out of heaven.

1 Corinthians 6
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.---NASB

This Methodist family has to renounced their sins and accept what the Bible says. Something the UMC also has to do.
