A Presbyterian minister who officiated the union of a lesbian couple will face a regional church court on two charges later this year.Wait a second, listening to the standard Christian objections, I thought it was supposed to be the other way around.

The Rev. Janet Edwards will go before the Permanent Judicial Commission of Pittsburgh Presbytery on Oct. 1, facing charges of knowingly acting in defiance of her ordination vows and of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)'s Constitution when she performed the same-sex ceremony, according to the Presbyterian News Service.
