Which Churches Allow Gay Marriage?

FAITHS ALLOWING SAME-SEX MARRIAGES

United Church of Christ: The United Church of Christ was the first mainstream Christian church to fully support same-sex marriage and perform marriage ceremonies.

Jewish: Reform Judaism embraces same-sex marriage and rabbis can perform ceremonies.  Some conservative and re-constructionist synagogues do as well.

Quaker: The willingness to perform gay marriages varies by meetinghouse, but there is some acceptance and performance of same-sex marriages among Quakers.

Metropolitan Community Church

Unitarian Universalist

Unity Church

FAITHS ALLOWING LIMITED SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

Episcopal: In the Episcopal Church, priests are authorized to bless same-sex wedding ceremonies but not declare the marriage official or sign the marriage license. Certain dioceses can perform full marriage ceremonies.

Lutheran: Lutheran churches can decide, on a church-by-church basis, whether or not to perform same-sex marriage.

FAITHS DISALLOWING SAME-SEX MARRIAGES

Baptists: Southern Baptist and Conservative Baptist churches will not conduct same-sex marriages, nor will they allow them to be held in their churches. Some American Baptist churches are open and inclusive.

Methodist

Catholic

Presbyterian (some will bless ceremonies)

In addition, we are not aware of any Eastern religions which sanction gay marriage and perform same-sex marriage ceremonies.
