United Church of Christ Splits over Same-Sex Marriage Endorsement

The decision by the United Church of Christ in July to endorse same-sex marriages has created a split among members of the denomination.  Estimates of churches that have voted to leave the denomination since July range from 49 to 77.  The UCC has a tradition of support for gays and lesbians. In 1972 it became the first major Christian church to ordain an openly gay minister.
