“All Persons”

May 1, 2016

Paragraph 162 of our denomination’s current Book of Discipline, but the highlights are mine —

We affirm all persons as equally valuable in the sight of God.

“We therefore work toward societies in which each person’s value is recognized, maintained, and strengthened.

“We support the basic rights of all persons to equal access to housing, education, communication, employment, medical care, legal redress for grievances, and physical protection.

“We deplore acts of hate or violence against groups or persons based on race, color, national origin, ethnicity, age, gender, disability, status, economic condition, sexual orientation, gender identity, or religious affiliation.”

— Boom. What say ye?
