UCC General Synod Affirms Dignity of Trans Persons
To huge cheers, and also many tears, the United Church of Christ’s 34th General Synod overwhelmingly approved a resolution affirming the dignity of trans and nonbinary persons.
The final count of the July 4 vote was 633 in favor and 10 against, with six abstaining. The resolution “reaffirms the historic commitment of this church to recognize and affirm that every human being is created in the image of God and is due respect for their inherent human dignity and rights so that they may not only survive but thrive.” It further encourages “all settings of the church, working with local partners, to advocate for the full legal equality of transgender, nonbinary and gender diverse persons.”
A recent Religion News Service article explored how trans individuals in the Jewish, Muslim, and Christian faiths search for their gender identity brought them closer to God.
