Gay Marriages.


A proposal containing two optional statements on same-gender marriages is to go before the Uniting Church in Australia National Assembly.

One statement preserves the 1997 position that marriage is between a man and a woman.

But a second statement says that marriage is between two people.

If the proposal is accepted Gay Marriages will be celebrated in the Uniting Church.

This is a major move for the Church.

And it is great news for the Gay Community who have been told that God hates them.

The celebration of Gay Marriages is a positive step that would help to redress years of persecution by the Church.

If we can spread the good news that not all God's Churches preach gay-hate then we may go a little way towards realizing the truth:

God loves gay people as they are.
