Legislative Committee ReportClose Window X
The version of the Petition printed in the Advance Edition of the DCA on page 318 was adopted with the language which is lined out reinserted with the exception of "or destroy" in the second sentence, which is to be deleted.
The reinserted sentence should read:
"We reject all sexual expressions that damage the humanity God has given us as birthright, and we affirm only that sexual expression that enhances that same humanity."
(Please note that there was a typographical error in the petition and the text that was struck out did not exactly match the existing text found in the 2004 Book of Discipline.)
