What religions/churches are most accepting of ALL people???

I have been trying to go back to the Catholic church for the last few years and the current Pope really has been nice to see- however- our local Catholic churches are VERY tied to politics and speak at mass about voting against abortions, etc. I am neutral on that subject I guess and pro gay rights so I guess I don't belong in the Catholic church- though my son does go to Catholic school.... I have tried and tried but I just can't get past some of their political stances. What other religions can I look into that might be more accepting of everyone gay, straight, married or divorced, etc??

  • I don't know if this is the kind of answer you wanted but I'd suggest Buddhism. Very positive and all-embracing.

  • Universal Unitarianism - that is it's definition by name. Most pagan faiths, though some are prone to infighting, and a lot of individuals who practice it have some understandable animosity towards Christianity due to how they were treated as children and forced to practice it.

  • I guess it depends on where you live in the USA. Here in NY the Catholic Church's are very accepting of everyone & anyone.

  • http://www.uua.org/directory/congregations/results.php?state=NM

    There's a list of UU congregations in NM. You can also learn more about Unitarian Universalism on that website, too. It really sounds like it is what you are looking for.

  • f you're looking for Catholic-style liturgy without the guilt issues, then I'll suggest the Episcopal Church. Pope Francis sounds positively Episcopalian! http://www.dioceserg.org
