LLAPH is short for Life, Liberty And the Pursuit of Happiness.

It is pronounced the same as “LAUGH”.

Please use commenting to share your opinions about what else we might call it, in official paperwork at least.

LLAPH Church, LLAPH Temple, LLAPH Space, or what?

LLAPH will be a place where we don’t pretend to have any answers.

One MUST be gay, lesbian, intersex, bisexual or transgender, or the spouse or child or family member of someone who is gay, lesbian, intersex, bisexual, or transgender, in order to be a full Member of LLAPH.

There will be an Auxiliary for those who do not qualify to be a full Member of LLAPH.

To discriminate against a Member of LLAPH for being gay, lesbian, intersex, bisexual, or transgender, is to discriminate against them because of a requirement that they must fulfill in order to to be Members of LLAPH. This would be religion-based discrimination, which is illegal everywhere in the U.S.A.

LLAPH will officially be a separate, independent, customized church under the auspices of the Universal Life Church. The ULC is international, and is fully recognized throughout the U.S.A. as a legal church. The ULC also does not claim to have any answers.

“Irrev.” Allan, the founding atheist "pastor" of LLAPH, is a legally ordained "minister", an official "Rev." in the Universal Life Church. Once we decide to activate LLAPH, we'll get the minimal Board of Directors in place (3-4 people), Allan will file the simple paperwork for LLAPH with ULC, and we’ll be ready to finish putting the details of the official information on this website.

Then we’ll start accepting registrations from Members of LLAPH via the LLAPH website!
