Which Protestant churches as of today officially recognize homosexual marriage unions? Is there any such information available?

    This is kind of listy. Is there a reason you want to know? – wax eagle Aug 14 '12 at 17:05

    A lot of Protestant organisations are highly decentralised. Individual congregations may differ. It would be very hard to come up with a comprehensive list. – TRiG Aug 14 '12 at 17:21
  • @waxeagle - I want to find out which Protestant churches do this, so that I could later ask them here directly about their basis in the Bible for this. – brilliant Aug 14 '12 at 22:43
  • I don't think this question is unreasonable. Yes it sounds 'listy', but we know the answer is going to be a manageable number of churches, and it's likely that a reference can be found that lists most of them. – DJClayworth Aug 15 '12 at 13:26

I think these are the same churches that approve ordination of lesbians. You can find a list here.

When reading the list keep in mind that some traditional churches have a wide range of different churches under the same umbrella.  For example, one Lutherian or Anglican church might openly preach against homosexuality of any kind, while just a few blocks away, another might ordain a lesbian as their rector or senior pastor!
