“What God has made clean, you must not call profane.”
Statement of Purpose
Acts 10:15 is McCormick Theological Seminary’s student group of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people and allies organized in intentional community to speak with “prophetic voices” for ourselves and as advocates for one another. We seek to build a community of mutuality and trust so that together we:
- proclaim a gospel of respect, love and justice;
- pursue policies and processes that support full participation and full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people in the life, ministry and witness of the McCormick community and in our various denominational and religious communities;
- overcome the barriers that diminish our common humanity by excluding or judging people because of their race, gender, class, or physical and mental abilities;
- empower people to undertake the education and the work of inclusion and justice where they are.
