Op-Ed: 10 Pro-LGBT Religious Women You Should Know
by Joseph Ward – March 19, 2013
Full article printed here.
As the new pope is celebrated today, it’s worth noting that not everyone who wears the cloth is antigay. This being Women’s History Month, here are 10 LGBT and allied women who are looking out for all of us.
8. Reverend Dr. Christine Wiley
Reverend Dr. Christine Wiley is co-pastor of Covenant Baptist UCC, the first traditionally black church in the District of Columbia to perform same-sex unions. In 2009 she cofounded D.C. Clergy United for Marriage Equality, putting her on the front lines of the LGBT rights movement.
“The black church and the black community have been characterized by some as being united in opposition against same-sex marriage,” she said at a gathering in 2009. “This could not be further from the truth. Black people are not monolithic. We are diverse just like all other human beings. And because Covenant Baptist Church is a beloved community with a long history of celebrating the richness of our diversity, we have gathered here today to affirm in the immortal words of the late Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
Join us before and after the United for Marriage Rally in front of the Supreme Court on March 26 as people of faith show broad-based support for the freedom to marry and LGBT equality.
