Official Statements

For over 50 years, MCC has had a unique voice, particularly around issues of the intersection of religion and human rights. Sometimes, we are the only queer voice advocating most vociferously for the rights of the most marginalized; and among queer human rights activists, we are often one of the only progressive religious voices connecting justice with faith. Among other “open, welcoming, affirming, or reconciling” churches and denominations, we are unique as a queer religious voice. As events occur in the world, generally, and in the religious world, in particular … our contribution is important.

Here you will find official statements from MCC’s Moderator, Council of Elders, Governing Board, Staff, and other key leaders.
