Standing On The Side Of Love

“Historically churches have been major perpetrators of injustice for gay and lesbian people and as a church that welcomes people of all sexual orientation, as both members and clergy, we feel it is our duty to stand up on the other side. “We are standing on the side of love here and that is our stance.”

Church minister Andrew Pakula from the Newington Green Unitarian Church explains their unanimous decision to stop all full wedding ceremonies because of inequalities in  Britain’s civil partnership laws. He said:

When we realised the extent of the injustice in the existing civil partnership law which completely prohibits any connection between religion and civil partnerships, we decided it just wasn’t something we could take part in.”
