New Zealand Church Stokes More Controversy
A provocative Auckland church that regularly stirs opinions with its billboards is doing it again with one showing two women getting married. As debate rages over the Marriage Equality Amendment Bill before Parliament, St Matthew-in-the-City unveiled a billboard showing two women in bridal gowns atop a wedding cake.
The billboard states "we don't care who's on top".
Reverend Clay Nelson said it should come as "no surprise" that St Matthew's endorses the bill as it has a long history of supporting the LGBTQ community in both the church and society.
"Our question is why would any church not endorse two people making a loving commitment to each other? Through our billboard we are expressing our solidarity with the many Christians in many denominations who are calling on Members of Parliament to support Louisa Wall's bill."
