      Congregation embraces transgender minister as his secret is revealed

      Rev. David Weekley hopes his story will help change United Methodist Church
      doctrine

      By Christine Mcfadden

      As soon as he raises the topic of gay rights to his conservative clergyman
      friend one day at lunch, he knows it's a mistake.

      He knows that the United Methodist Church long ago retained the right to
      turn away openly gay clergy members.

      So Weekley listens to his friend espouse the opinion of the church, and
      buries his secret deeper. No one can ever find out that Weekley, a married
      father of five in Southeast Portland and a Methodist clergyman of 27 years,
      was born female.
