WHEREAS, the UUA has distinguished itself by its repeated support of the
employment rights of minority groups; and
WHEREAS, many of the UUA member societies which have considered openly gay,
lesbian, and bisexual candidates have been unwilling to accept the candidates
because of their sexual orientations; and
WHEREAS, the hiring of religious leaders by Unitarian Universalist members
societies is a matter of local conscience;
BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1980 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist
Association urge the UUA and its member churches, fellowships and organizations
to renew their commitment to end discrimination against gay, lesbian, and
bisexual persons through educational programs at the local, district, and
continental levels and calls upon the Unitarian Universalist Ministers
Association and the UUA Department of Ministerial and Congregational Services to
lend full assistance in the settlement of qualified openly gay, lesbian, and
bisexual religious leaders.
