United Methodist clergy in Baltimore are asking for the denomination's highest legal authority to review a bishop's decision to reappoint a transgender pastor to lead a city congregation.

As Jessica Kartalija reports for CBS affiliate WJZ, Bishop John R. Schol decided last week to continue the appointment of the Rev. Drew Phoenix as pastor of St. John's United Methodist Church.

Phoenix, 48, has led St. John's for nearly five years. In the past year, he changed his name from Ann Gordon and received medical treatment to become a man.

The Methodist church bans sexually active gay clergy but does not have any rules about transgender pastors.
