A Father’s Love for His Son


A father’s loving hands, a father’s loving heart.


Setting the scenario:

* A Methodist minister.

* He loves his church.

* He loves his son.


(The Rev. Frank Schaefer, right, and his son Tim.)

* His son is gay.

* His gay son wants to get married.

* Dad conducts the ceremony.

* Dad gets in big trouble with the church.

* A tough, tough, tough situation.
