UCC Advertisement Features Lesbian Wedding

Check out this new video from the United Church of Christ. Pay attention to the scene of two women getting married at the 36-second mark. The video also appears to feature two dads with a son at 1:17.

The UCC passed a resolution at its 2005 general synod meeting in support of same-sex marriage. This wasn’t the denomination’s first time to blaze a trail on lgbt concerns. In 1972, with the ordination of William Johnson, the UCC became the first mainline Christian denomination to ordain an openly gay or lesbian person. 

This isn’t the first time that the denomination has taken on LGBT issues in their innovative advertising. Check out these previous videos, which were banned on some television networks, here and here.
