Dave Smith Quotes

One Quote by: Fr Dave Smith of Anglican Church, Sydney, Australia Parish priest.

From a Christian point of view, marriage is an institution designed to serve two social needs: 1. contribute broadly to social stability
2. provide a stable environment for the nurturing of children.
If this is the case then the only questions Christians need to concern themselves with when it comes to the issue of gay marriage are these two:
1. Would gay marriage lead to greater social stability?
2. Would a married gay partnership be likely to provide a more secure environment for the nurturing of the children of a gay couple than an unmarried one?
I think the answer to both these questions has to be ‘yes'.
