The score for church websites that do not clearly communicate non-affirming LGBTQ+ policies.
Unclear websites locate policies in peripheral sections of the website (e.g. sermons) OR are located in a denomination's website and are not directly linked from church website's primary pages.
Non-Affirming policies place restrictions on individuals based on their sexual orientation and/or gender identity (e.g. people who identify as Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex or Queer). A church may welcome LGBTQ+ people, but if it will not ordain, hire or marry LGBTQ+ people, their policy is non-affirming. If a church has non-egalitarian policy, that will be counted as non-affirming since it discriminates based on gender identity.
