Because Everybody Is Entitled To My Opinion

UCC Exodus Over Gay Marraige

DL Foster over at Perspectives in Motion talks about the UCC Exodus. The United Church of Christ is hemorrhaging members losing 97 congregations since sanctioning gay marriages last July.  The Christian Post points out that the liberal UCC has a history of supporting gay causes.

The first actively gay minister in the UCC was ordained in 1972, and by 1985 the church adopted an “open and affirming” position toward homosexuals. However, according to Thompson, less than 10 percent of the congregations adopted that policy.

Congregations are voting with their feet. Will the leadership listen or will they hold onto their support of homosexuality contrary to scripture?
