United Church Of Christ Marriage Resolution Demonstrates Leadership On Equality And Understanding

The General Synod of the 1.3 million member United Church
of Christ will consider a resolution endorsing marriage equality for
gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender couples at its biennial meeting
in Atlanta which begins July 1 and lasts through July 5. Human Rights
Campaign President Joe Solmonese made the following statement today:

"Fair-minded people of faith have come to depend on the UCC for
leadership on equality. For years, the United Church of Christ has been
at the forefront of leadership on GLBT rights. We applaud the
denomination's members and leaders for their thoughtful dialogue as they
have considered the marriage resolution in preparation for General
Synod. While some denominations work to shut down the national
conversation on challenges facing gay families, UCC congregations and
regional bodies have lovingly discussed the needs of these families,
whom they embrace as sisters and brothers. The head of the UCC –
Reverend Thomas – spoke our in favor of the resolution yesterday and
sent a strong message to millions of people of faith that every loving
family should valued and cherished. The formal debate and vote on
marriage equality at the General Synod offer another opportunity for the
UCC to lead on GLBT equality."
