Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren ready to bless same-sex unions
Pastors of the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren will be able to officially bless same-sex unions if they wish to do so, the spokesman for the church Jiří Hofman said in a press release. The synod approved the decision at a three-day conference in Prague. The church leadership concluded that although there is not full agreement within the church on this matter the clergy should have the right to make their own decision. The Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren is the second church in Czechia to allow the blessing of same-sex couples, after the Old Catholic Church.
