Sign the petition: The “Nashville Statement” is an affront to our values as Christians!

The "Nashville Statement" does not represent us as Christians. Sign our alternative UCC statement.

The "Nashville Statement" signed by a number of evangelical leaders condemns lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people. The following is the UCC's response. Please sign and send a message that we stand with God's LGBTQ family!

The Nashville Statement is an affront to the still speaking God who will not be contained by the narrow mindedness of God’s people. The work of creation and the life and ministry of Jesus are a testament to God’s inclusive nature as the source of diversity and God’s concern for the marginalized. Sexual orientation and gender identity in all their diversity are divine gifts which are integral to human personhood. They are bestowed on each of us in different ways that each of us may experience life in abundance. The love commandment of Jesus--to love God with your whole being and your neighbor as your self--calls on people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions to live out these gifts in ways that are just and loving toward ourselves and in our relationship with others.
