Where Do Religions Stand on Marriage Equality

Written by scott on June 19th, 2014

Marriage Equality and Religion

The Pew Research Center has a great chart on where the major religions are these days on marriage equality.

Pew reports:

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) plans to hold a historic vote on same-sex marriage this week that could reverberate beyond the church’s nearly 2 million members. Church leaders gathering in Detroit are expected to decide as early as today whether to allow gay marriage or to continue to prohibit it, a move some Christian leaders believe could influence other centrist and liberal mainline Protestant churches as they also grapple with the issue. In the last two decades, several religious groups have moved to allow same-sex couples to marry within their traditions. This includes the Reform and Conservative Jewish movements, Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ.

Will the Presbyterians come around tomorrow?

    (Russian) Orthodox Catholic Church – needless to say. We all know – major non flying zone. :/

    It is not catholic, but rather Orthodox Cristian Church – lapsus calami…

    ELCA Lutheran synod has TONS of “pray away the gay” material on their website, so I would assume condemnation on their part.

  4. Aleta Turner says:

    In the image, the UU name is incorrect. It should be Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.
