Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (UUA), issued the following statement today:
The repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) is a cause for celebration for all who believe in civil rights. Now, gay men and women will be allowed to serve their country with integrity and dignity.
I want to thank the many dedicated Unitarian Universalists who have been working to repeal this discriminatory policy for the past seventeen years. The repeal of DADT is another step on the long journey for full equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Americans.
Let us take a moment to celebrate this victory. And let us continue to stand on the side of love for those who serve.
The UUA is a faith community of more than 1,000 self-governing congregations that bring to the world a vision of religious freedom, tolerance, and social justice.
