Group Description

We are Christian Clergy:
grounded in the witness of the Bible; convinced of God’s unconditional love for all people; raising a voice against Christian intolerance that promotes condemnation, discrimination, and hatred; advocating justice for all especially Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, and Transgendered persons.

We believe that homosexual persons are people of wholeness and worth, entitled to a complete and full life. We are convinced that the Bible makes clear God’s unconditional love and acceptance of all people. We therefore welcome homosexual persons, as we welcome all people, into our Christian communities and organizations.

We regret that the judgemental pronouncements of some political and Christian leaders have characterized homosexual persons as inherently more sinful and/or immoral than their heterosexual counterparts. We disagree with these views, and feel that interpretations of the Bible used to support such views are inaccurate and incomplete. We believe that homosexual persons are no more sinful and are of equal character and personal integrity as any other group of people.

The divisive rhetoric concerning the issue of homosexuality has invaded our churches and denominations with inflammatory, misleading, and politically-driven arguments. Polarization and mistrust have often displaced communication and understanding. We hope for a renewal of meaningful discourse, and look forward to genuine dialogue with all persons regarding this issue.

We believe that there are many unheard voices who share these convictions and welcome all persons who are moved to stand together in support of the unconditional inclusive love of God. We are committed to work and pray for understanding and strength as the journey continues.
