A US Presbyterian minister accused of breaking church law by marrying two women goes on trial before church officials on Wednesday. Janet Edwards, a parish associate at the Community of Reconciliation Church in Pittsburgh, was accused of violating the church's position on marriage by presiding at the June 2005 wedding. The constitution of the Presbyterian Church (USA) reserves marriage for a man and a woman, although ministers may bless other types of "holy unions." The Permanent Judicial Commission of the Pittsburgh Presbytery will conduct the trial. The Rev. James Mead, pastor to the Pittsburgh Presbytery, declined comment.
