Homosexuality and bisexuality

Menu:

The United Church of Christ & homosexuality

Sponsored link.


This is not part of the United Church of Christ's web site. It is a section on the ReligiousTolerance.org web site that describes the beliefs and practices of different faith groups concerning homosexuality and bisexuality.

The United Church of Christ (UCC) is an American Protestant denomination with a long history of fighting discrimination based on race, gender, and now sexual orientation and gender identity. Being from the liberal wing of Christianity, they have tended to tackle matters of bigotry and discrimination long before many other denominations.

In 2005, the UCC became the first major Christian denomination in the U.S. to promote same-sex marriage. They confirmed this position in 2007.

Topics covered in this section:

bulletOverview of the UCC and homosexuality
 
bulletStatements of inclusivity and General Synod resolutions
bulletEndorsement of same-sex marriage by General Synod 25 (2005)
 
bulletItems in the media
 
bulletThe UCCA TV ad that was "too controversial"
