Calvin Synod might leave UCC over equal marriage resolution
If passed, the Calvin Synod – which will send three voting delegates to Synod – may consider withdrawal from the UCC, according to its resolution.
The marriage equality proposal describes the Gospel as a place where a definition of marriage and family relationships based on affirmation of the full humanity of each partner is found. It declares that the state should not interfere with couples regardless of gender who choose to marry and share fully and equally in the rights, responsibilities and commitment of legally recognized marriage.
It denies that same-gender marriage meets the definition of marriage, declares that such “heresy is intolerable” to its members and ministers and calls on the UCC to “disavow this heresy.”
