One Response to Anglican proposal for same-sex marriage blessing in New Zealand

  1. kiwianglo says:

    Not having a 'Magisterium', which would legislate for every Province of the world-wide Anglican Communion, each province – In this case the Anglican Church in Aotearoa/New Zealand and Polynesia – is at liberty to to enact its own legislative measures that do not deny the central doctrines of the Anglican Communion.

    Thus, the ability to 'Bless' Same-Sex Unions (i.e. Civil Marriage for Same-Sex monogamously faithful Couples) is contemplated as a way of including such committed relationships within our Church. This is also a pastoral initiative to honour those people who are members of our Church who desire God's Blessing on their relationshp.

    If one can 'bless' a battleship, a private household or a garden. then why not a faithful committed life-long relationship between two person of the same gender?

    No priest will be forced to conduct a Same-Sex Marriage Blessing.
