Christians for Civil Union sign now

"Christians for Civil Union" supports the Civil Union Bill and the Relationships (Statutory References) Bill currently before the New Zealand Parliament. These Bills affirm the dignity and equality of all people.

PLEASE SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE BILLS BY SIGNING THIS PETITION.

We welcome and support the Civil Union and Relationships Bills as a contemporary way of dealing with real issues around the recognition of the diversity of relationships in society. The Bills will provide legal status and respect to all couples, what ever their sexual orientation.

We are concerned that the voice of the Christian Right opposing the Civil Union and Relationships Bills has been the loudest voice in the media, and yet these individuals and groups by no means speak for all Christians.

Many church leaders and congregational members within the mainstream Protestant Churches, and others within the Roman Catholic Church, hold the view that our norms of sexual behaviour have been based on now outdated scientific theories, passages of scripture used out of context, and a literalistic and legalistic interpretation of the Bible.

Our support for the Bills is a practical way of demonstrating the inclusiveness of the Christian Gospel towards the marginalized.

We SUPPORT the Civil Union and Relationships (Statutory References) Bills as a way of affirming the dignity and equality of all people, and pray for their successful passage through Parliament.
