Posted on 09/13/2008 3:33:46 PM PDT by xzins
ATLANTA - The United Church of Christs rule-making body voted overwhelmingly Monday to approve a resolution that endorses same-sex marriage, making it the largest Christian denomination to do so.
Roughly 80 percent of the members of the churchs General Synod voted to approve the resolution. They debated for about an hour before voting.
Traditionally strong in New England, the liberal denomination of 1.3 million members has long been supportive of gays and lesbians.
In the early 1970s, the UCC became the first major Christian body to ordain an openly gay minister. Twenty years ago, it declared itself to be open and affirming of gays and lesbians.
The same-sex resolution was submitted by the Southern California and Nevada Conference. The resolution specified that bisexual and transgender persons merit the same support and protections as gays and lesbians.

“The United Harlot Church of Christ”
God does not dwell in that church.
What a queer decision..?../>?
Interesting choice for Barak Obama. His wife is at the National Baptist convention in Cincinnati this weekend. I'm sure there were plenty of NBC's in Chicago to join...and they aren't gay churches now or 20 years ago when Obama joined his UCC.
Interesting choice to join a gay approving church 20 years ago.
It’s like God said: there will be a falling away, and then He comes back.
“The parents of Larry Sinclair request the honor of your presence at ...”
Yep, in Revelation he says that if they don’t repent He will remove their candlestick.
Why waste a perfectly good candlestick on a church that has no light to offer?
For reasons unknown to me there are lots of atheists who insist on calling themselves....and on being called....Christians.
You suppose Charlie Gibson will pressure Obama to answer questions about his church doing this?
Maybe Obama is gay, or maybe he is just a straight sexist pig.
Plus, all their members are homosexuals.
Obama’s church was “TRINITY UCC”, a different denomination entirely. They are into black liberation theology. Although they probably have more than their fair share of gay guys, I don’t think Rev. Wright was into making that stuff public.
I recall a thread about b.hussein homo-sexually involved with the male choir director, Donald Young, who was murdered late last year. Anyone else remember that story?
Aren't mooslimbs into homosexual & pedaphilia activities?
I guess Satan has redacted their bible...
The UCC stands for United Church of Christ.
The “Trinity” is just a local congregational name.
It is about the UCC denomination (United Church of Christ) AND it mentions Obama’s church.
My understanding is that this is a completely independent church with no ministerial or other affiliations outside the congregation.
For them it's just a name ~ a word.
There. That's what the editors obviously left out.
It is not the only spot.
The UCC is a denomination. They wouldn’t permit their trademark to be violated.
Beside, liberation theology is right down their alley.
Trinity UCC is considered one of the largest churches in their denomination.
