Seven years after he officiated his son’s same-sex marriage — and after enduring a trial, appeals and a defrocking before his ultimate reinstatement — Rev. Frank Schaefer shares his emotional and spiritual journey on this week’s show. Rev. Frank details his experiences and his disagreements with the Church in the new book Defrocked: How a Father’s Act of Love Shook the United Methodist Church.

Frank tells Welton why defying his denomination was the only option he could choose as a parent and as a faith leader.
