Religious Denominations / Churches


This web page with its following list of denominations is relatively new. The list is preliminary, as described in the following note:

Note: additions will be made for more religious denominations / churches that meet the same criteria as for the list below: a denomination (meaning an organization) that has an official position on Medicare for All and has roughly a million members. That criteria might exclude some of the denominations of the initial list, below, if it is impossible to determine a denomination’s position.

Among the religious denominations listed below. those denominations which are endorsers/supporters of Medicare for All are highlighted in green.

For details of their support, refer to the popular support section of the Single-Payer Support Monitor: see the Churches that are endorsers/supporters.

Note: as implied, those not identified as supporters are not necessarily against single-payer, Medicare for All. Neither I nor anyone else, as far as I know, has attempted to do any significant amount of research that would determine the entire list of denominations that are endorsers/supporters. — Bob
