Clergy Stand For Marriage Equality in Southern Oregon

Posted by goddesspdx on January 6, 2009

The First Congregational United Church of Christ in Ashland Oregon will be conducting same gender weddings underscoring their belief for the need of separation of church and state.

“We, as UCC ministers, believe the separation of church and
state is good for the church and for the state”

While the minsiters of the UCC Church will continue to celebrate the sacrament of marriage for all couples who wish to have thier spiritual union belssed by the church, the ministers will not be signing marriage licenses for any couple being married in thier church until they are legally able to sign marriage licenses for everyone.

“At First Congregational United Church of
Christ in Ashland we will no longer sign marriage licenses for any
one until we are able to sign marriage licenses for everyone.”
