This is a remarkable thing. Mic. reports
a congregation of prominent Conservative Jewish rabbis passed a resolution last week supporting the inclusion and rights of transgender people within the Jewish community.
According to the Washington Post, this resolution by the Conservative Judaism denomination comes almost a year after the progressive Reform Judaism sect passed their resolution in 2015. Three other Christian denominations — the United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church and the Metropolitan Community Church — also made statements expressing support for transgender and gender non-conforming people.
Perhaps religious communities can lobby Congress for a little Peace, Love and Understanding.
