dc.description.abstractOne of the most contentious issues among Christian denominations today is focused upon the rights of gays within the church. Historically, Christianity has been opposed to lesbian and gay orientation in both the church and wider society. However, recent social attitudes and legislation has become more liberal regarding homosexuality. This leaves the church as one of the last bastions against the gay cause. This article considers the key issues through an examination of the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement in the UK. It overviews the principal aims of the movement in advancing gay rights within the church and traces its development over the last three decades. The article also considers the ways that the LGCM has mobilized its cause, not least of all its recourse to the secular language of "rights." Likewise, the article considers the strategy of conservative Christian organizations in resisting the gay movement in the churches.en_US
