Work for Marriage Equality: Sign Altar for All

See who already signed

Almost 3,000 United Methodist clergy, laity, and congregations across the world have signed statements committing themselves to fulfill their vow to ministry by marrying or blessing couples regardless of their gender. When parishioners come to their pastors to request that they officiate at their weddings, ministers face a conflict between their vow to minister to their whole congregation and their vow to uphold the Book of Discipline, which asks them to deny ministry to some of their members. In the face of these conflicts, clergy are making conscientious decisions for ministry rather than exclusion. These clergy believe that to do so is a faithful act of witness that claims Jesus’ command to “love God and neighbor.” Regional coordinators are maintaining the lists of clergy who are moving forward with ministry to all prepared loving couples.
