Community of Christ ChurchThe Community of Christ Church, with more than 250,000 members worldwide, is considering recognizing same sex marriages in its US churches. Dot429 reports:

The Community of Christ Church, formerly known as the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has entertained the recommendation that it change its policy to recognize same-sex marriages and allow all to enter the priesthood, regardless of sexual orientation, at their national conference on Sunday, attended by 1,500 delegates… Regarding marriage and civil unions, the recommendations include that the “sacrament of marriage be extended, where legal in the USA, to persons of the same sex/gender…” and in states where same-sex marriage is not legal, “…that a church-recognized way for two persons of the same sex/gender to publicly express their convent to each other be made available…” allowing for church-recognized ceremonies.

Yet another denomination may recognize the love between same sex couples – fantastic.
