The good Rev. Frank Schaefer, a pastor probably not unlike the one I idolized as a child, has been suspended by the United Methodist Church for officiating the wedding of his gay son. It is a blow that, even after nearly a decade away from the church, leaves me filled with anger and despair.

If the United Methodist Church in southeastern Pennsylvania eventually defrocks Rev. Schaefer, it would be a great shame. This is a man who can teach the church and the community real life lessons about love, compassion and doing the right thing.
