The UCC Files Landmark Lawsuit in North Carolina
The General Synod of the United Church of Christ (UCC) filed a lawsuit, Monday, April 28, 2014 in U.S. District Court in Charlotte, arguing that North Carolina marriage laws limit ministers’ choices, violate the principle of “free exercise of religion” upon which the church is built, and restricts the freedoms of religion and expressive association guaranteed in the First Amendment. Hear a word from the Rev. Geoffrey A. Black, General Minister and President of the United Church of Christ, on the denomination’s decision to join this landmark case.
