Individual religious groups' policies
and beliefs about homosexuality
This section will necessarily beuntil policies stabilize
A note and an appeal:
This section contains dozens of essays which describe the current
policies, beliefs and practices of various faith groups about homosexuality.
The essays were written and are being continually updated by our site's main
author who was raised a Christian and is now an Agnostic.
We receive many angry E-mails in which religious folk express their
belief that nobody outside of their denomination or tradition can write
accurately about their faith group. We disagree. We have tried to present
these topics clearly, accurately, objectively, comprehensively, and in an
unbiased and balanced manner. Although no essays about such a controversial
topic can be truly without bias, we feel that our essays are far more
objective than most on the Internet.
If you feel that we have misrepresented your faith group, please
But be sure to mention the essay's file name (hom_chur.htm in this case).
