Homosexuality and Religion
This section does not attempt to support one position or another,
although the Institute and Hartford Seminary affirm the worth of all
people regardless of sexual orientation and the full inclusion of
everyone in God's community.
Rather, this section provides articles and research on the
intersection of homosexuality and religion. We also provide links to
numerous groups that work to affirm gay religious rights and those
which oppose this.
