WHEREAS the persistence in our midst of homophobia and heterosexism sorely
tests our commitment to our Principles and Purposes;
WHEREAS Unitarian Universalists have consistently committed ourselves through
the General Assembly to the dignity and rights of gay, lesbian, and bisexual
persons and to their full inclusion in our movement; and
WHEREAS the Welcoming Congregation program has been proposed by the Common
Vision Planning Committee and approved by the UUA Board of Trustees as an
effective response to the aforementioned concerns and as a model for training in
the practice of inclusive community;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the 1989 General Assembly of the Unitarian
Universalist Association adopts the recommendation of the Common Vision Planning
Committee that the Welcoming Congregation Program be established as set forth in
the attachment hereto (Attachment A); and
IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the 1989 General Assembly urges the Unitarian
Universalist Association Administration to implement this Program through its
Office of Lesbian and Gay Concerns.
