The United Church of Christ has released a new video that illustrates the church’s policy of openness and acceptance and in one scene depicts a same sex marriage ceremony being performed by one of the church’s preachers. Historically, the Protestant UCC denomination has expressed progressive views on most social issues including gay rights, civil rights, women’s rights, and abortion. In 2005, the UCC was the first major Christian congregation to make a statement in support of gay marriage. You can watch the video below.
This isn’t the first advertisement the UCC has released that demonstrates its support of gay rights. You may remember the church’s controversial “Ejector” ad from a few years back.
