This thesis deals with being gay and Christian in the United States, the history of the beginnings of the Gay Rights Movement, and the past thirty years since the Gay Rights Movement. In order to gain a better understanding of the subject, twelve Christian denominations were investigated to analyze their positions on homosexuality, gays in the church, same-sex marriages, and their willingness to allow gays to be ordained as Priests, Ministers, or to hold offices in the church.
