June 25, 2011 - PRLog -- The Universal Life Church Monastery ( has always taken the stance that any person – ULC minister or no – should have the right to perform any act or action as long as it does not harm another or impinge on another’s rights. With this principle in mind, the ULC Monastery sees no reason why officially-recognized matrimony should be denied to anyone, especially the gays and lesbians of America.

The brave decision by New York State’s government to legalize gay marriage is commendable to the umpteenth degree. While New York State is not the first state government to legalize gay marriage, the size and stature of the Empire State causes their state legislature’s decision to be especially important. We at the Universal Life Church pray that the passing of this landmark legislation kick-starts a sea change across America that both gives gays and lesbians their natural-born right to enjoy the same legal, emotional, and societal privileges stemming from legally-recognized marriage and decreases ignorance and prejudice toward gays and lesbians in American society.

So, as county clerk offices across the great state of New York gear up to begin handling the influx in demand for marriage license thanks to this law, the Universal Life Church Monastery would like to reiterate its stance towards gay marriage: everyone in America, including gays and lesbians, deserve the right to be married in a meaningful and intimate way and enjoy the legal, emotional, and societal privileges that extend from matrimony. The ULC Monastery, as always, will provide the necessary credentials and documentation to legally ordain the friends, relatives, or even acquaintances of gay and lesbian couples through its online ordination process so that these loving couples can enjoy the matrimonial benefits so many Americans take for granted. Those who wish to become legally ordained can for their lifetime can do so by visiting the ULC Monastery’s website at

The Universal Life Church Monastery also pledges its support for gay and lesbian marriage rights and will fight to expand gay marriage to all fifty states. The ULC Monastery will also strive to end the hatred leveled toward the gay community by religious organizations – including other online ministries – across the county.
