United Church of Christ backs gay marriage
Here's the story from the NYTimes. I attended the last UCC general synod in Minneapolis two years ago as an observer, and was struck by the progressive tone of the denomination--which will still feel the sting of a conservative backlash within its membership. After all, they were ordaining gays and lesbians to the ministry back in the 1980s. I applaud this latest action, and wish the other mainline denominations would join in the prophetic battle for equality.
