1977 Business Resolution

WHEREAS, the bigotry and misinformation presented by the forces of the "Save Our Children" movement led by Anita Bryant encourage violations of the civil rights of gay people; and

WHEREAS, human rights are not an issue on which there should be a vote by which the majority can deny rights to a minority; and

WHEREAS, the false propaganda using a religious basis for persecution strikes at the very foundation of the basic tenet of the Unitarian Universalist Association, to seek the truth and support the worth of all humans;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association calls on all Unitarian Universalists to use their efforts in stopping such biased persecution and intolerance for the gay minority.
