Quaker views of sexuality

add intro


Quakers are divided on the issue of homosexuality. Unprogramed Friends are the most tolerant with many monthly meetings, and some yearly meetings providing full equality for homosexuals, including marriage. Because of the nature of Quaker decision making, the number of Quakers who support equality for homosexuals is larger, and perhaps significantly larger than the preceding statement would indicate. However, the Friends United Meeting[?] and Evangelical Friends International[?], which represent programmed Quaker meetings, have taken official stands condemning homosexuality.
