Thought Control by a "Moderate" church

On Monday, the United Methodist Church convicted Rev. Frank Schaefer on two counts against the Church for officiating his son’s same-sex wedding. On Tuesday, the impaneled jury determined his sentence: Schaefer is suspended for 30 days, and if it at the end of that time he has not renounced his support for marriage equality, he will be defrocked.

Schaefer, however, was unapologetic, refusing the invitation to “repent of your actions”
Note again that he officiated at his OWN SON’S wedding.
In just a few years, the United Methodist Church is going to look back in embarrassment like those churches that fought against interracial marrage.

Another reason that religion sucks.

Look on the bright side--the guy may soon be ripe for The Clergy Project.

No, they won’t look back in embarrassment. At best, they’ll just sweep it under the rug and pretend it didn’t happen.
