Anglican Archbishop opposes same sex marriage

#1139 for broadcast on 2CH Sydney, 18 October 2015

In his opening address to the annual Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, Archbishop Glenn Davies called on Christians to oppose moves to legalise same sex marriage. He said:

The antagonism of the world to the word of God is perhaps seen nowhere more acutely than in the virulent challenge to the definition of marriage which pervades conversations in the media, the workplace and even in our places of leisure.

Dr Davies said “marriage necessarily has boundaries that even the adherents of the facile rhetoric of ‘marriage equality’ cannot deny,” citing children, siblings and those already betrothed as examples of existing restrictions placed on marriage.

He encouraged all Christians, especially Anglicans, to “enter the discussion and graciously and sensitively explain the reasons why our good Creator has made marriage the way he has.”

The Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, Anthony Fisher, also spoke out strongly this week against same sex marriage.
