Marriage Gives NZ Archbishop The Sadz

"We find it bizarre that what has been discarded is an understanding of marriage that has its origin in human nature and is common to every culture.  We know many New Zealanders stand with us in this.  Marriage is the essential human institution that predates religion and state. It is a committed union between a man and a woman which has a natural orientation towards the procreation of new human life. We’ve been assured that our religious freedom to teach and practice marriage according to our religious beliefs is protected, and we will continue to ensure that this freedom is upheld." -  Archbishop John Dew, expressing his "profound sadness" over the passage of same-sex marriage in New Zealand.
