This includes support for the District of Columbia’s Marriage Equality Act as well as the Stop the Trials initiative. (stop the trials link, http://www.nationalchurch.org/stop)

The Metropolitan Church affirms that all individuals are of sacred worth without regard to race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, religion, education, marital circumstances, economic status, physical and mental condition, or criminal history. We declare ourselves in support of the reconciling movement and welcome the full participation in the church of gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered persons and their families, as a reflection of God’s unconditional love. At the same time, we recognize differences of opinion on issues of sexuality and seek to journey together in faith toward greater understanding and mutual respect.   – See more at: http://www.nationalchurch.org/Serving/Reconciling_Community#sthash.OUYTcSZ8.dpuf
