About this product
- DescriptionThe pastor of a United Methodist congregation in a small Pennsylvania town, Franklyn Schaefer never expected to be the center of a theological and societal debate. But after officiating at his son's marriage to ather man, a church court demanded he vow to never again preside over a same-sex wedding-or he would be forced to give up his credentials as a pastor. Defrocked tells the story, in Schaefer's own words, of the events that led to the nation's largest mainline Protestant demination stripping him of his ordination.
- Author BiographyFranklyn Schaefer is a former ordained minister of United Methodist Church where he ministered for more than 20 years until December 2013. He is married to Brigitte and has four children. He was educated at Princeton Theological Seminary and also earned a CPE degree at Hershey Medical Center's residency program for chaplains. In 2013, Franklyn Schaefer was tried by a United Methodist court for officiating his son's same-sex marriage and was defrocked over his refusal to uphold the Book of Discipline, which meant virtually to denounce gay marriage rights. Now a United Methodist lay person, speaker and activist, he continues to advocate for human rights. Sherri Wood Emmons is a freelance writer and editor and has published three novels. She is a graduate of Earlham College and the University of Denver Publishing Institute. A mother of three, she lives in Indiana with her husband, two fat beagles, and four spoiled cats.
