Homosexuality and bisexuality
The United Church of Christ & homosexuality
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.
