How Can Evangelical Christians Love Their Homosexual Neighbors?


Resolution:
Human Sexuality and Civil Rights
A proposed resolution for the U.S. Congress and the Legislatures of the
Several States:

HUMAN SEXUALITY AND CIVIL RIGHTS


Whereas:

All persons hold the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and property, and
therefore they hold equal dignity and protection under due process of law;

And whereas:

The historic family unit, rooted in heterosexual faithful monogamous
marriage and the raising of children is the basic institution in society;

And whereas:

There are those who by choice, circumstance, or the brokenness of adversity who are unable to participate fully or partly as members of the historic family unit;

We affirm:

1. Marriage is defined as the union of one man and one woman in mutual
fidelity;

2. No punitive laws shall exist to restrict private association, whether
heterosexual or homosexual; and

3. All persons shall accept accountability for the public consequences of
their private associations and actions, and they shall in no way deprive
others of life, liberty, or property.


This resolution is sponsored by the Theological Education Institute (TEI), 150 Trumbull St., 4th Floor, Hartford, CT 06103; 860/246-0099 ph/fax. Resolution #3, rev. 05/97.
