England – the gay issue
Posted by Fr Mark on August 20, 2009
Unitarians in the United Kingdom bless civil partnerships in their churches.
From Derby Unitarians website:
Unitarians are delighted with the long overdue Civil Partnership law. However, true equality would see religious ceremonies also becoming lawful.
For decades Unitarians have championed gay and lesbian rights and our diverse community has been greatly enriched by our gay and lesbian ministers and members.
For many years Unitarian ministers have celebrated blessings for same-sex couples. These ceremonies are individually arranged to reflect the beliefs and aspirations of the couple.
If you and your partner would like a spiritual but dogma-free ceremony to bless your Civil Union in one of our beautiful chapels, or at a venue of your choice, or would like to talk over the options with our minister, please feel free to make contact. There is no obligation and you will not be pressured.
