PA Pastors To Defy Church, Perform Gay Marriage Ceremony



A group of Methodist ministers will jointly officiate the marriage of a same-sex couple — in violation of church doctrine — to show solidarity with a colleague facing possible dismissal for presiding at his gay son's wedding.
 
More than 30 pastors from the eastern part of the state have pledged to officiate the same-sex marriage next month, despite the risk it poses for their careers.
 
The group is acting to support the Rev. Frank Schaefer, who leads Zion United Methodist Church of Iona in Lebanon. He faces a church trial on Nov. 18 for officiating his son's 2007 wedding in Massachusetts, where gay marriage is legal.
