(Philadelphia) -- A complaint has been filed against 36 United Methodist ministers who blessed a same-sex wedding in Philadelphia.
Bishop Peggy Johnson of the church's eastern Pennsylvania conference said in a statement she is following the church's disciplinary process and is prayerful that "a just resolution can be achieved."
Details of the complaint weren't available, including the name of the person who filed it.
The pastors blessed the November 9 ceremony at Philadelphia's Arch Street United Methodist Church to show support for a colleague who faced church discipline for presiding over his gay son's wedding.
The Reverend Frank Schaefer of Lebanon County was defrocked following a church trial, but had his ordination reinstated by an appeals panel last month.
The church accepts gay members but forbids pastors from conducting same-sex weddings.
