Pacific Conference of Churches unmoved by NZ marriage law change

The Pacific Conference of Churches, which represents 38 Protestant and Catholic Churches in the Pacific region, says it’s unmoved by the passage, in New Zealand, of the same gender marriage bill

General secretary Francois Pihaartae has told Radio Australia’s Pacific Beat in his view, same sex marriage remains against God’s will.

“Pacific churches are very much conservative. And also really hard to convert to this new idea of same-sex marriage,” he said.

“I don’t think that the decision of the New Zealand Government will change the discussion.”

Pihaartae has warned gay couples in the Pacific who travel to New Zealand to get married will not have their marriage recognised by the church.
