Hate speech exists. Yes, even in our mountain towns, recently-expressed words and sentiments of transphobia and homophobia remind us that there is still much work to be done in making our community a safe and healthy place for all, explicitly including those who identify as 2SLGBTQ+.
In 2019 RCMUC committed itself to be an Affirming Ministry, embracing Christ’s love and desire for justice, inclusion, and affirmation for all. In July 2022 we recommit ourselves to these goals, and stand with those in the broader community who are working for inclusiveness and safety for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
