DETROIT – On Oct. 3, at a special congregational meeting, the First Unitarian- Universalist Church of Detroit unanimously passed a resolution supporting legal recognition of marriage between members of the same sex on an equal basis with marriage between members of opposite sexes. The Board of Trustees recommended the resolution to the congregation following its unanimous adoption at the Board’s regular meeting on Sept. 12.
The resolution states in part that, “Whereas, the Unitarian Universalist Association General Assembly voted overwhelmingly to call for the legalization of same-sex marriages in 1996 building on a long-standing and deeply held commitment to support full equality for bisexual, gay, lesbian and transgender people, going back to 1970, therefore, be it resolved that the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Detroit, Michigan adopts a corporate position in support of legal recognition of marriage between members of the same sex on an equal basis with marriage between members of the opposite sexes.”
