"We Don't Care Who's on Top"



Or so the billboard said a couple of months ago.

"An Auckland church has erected a billboard in support of a bill to legalise same-sex marriages.

The billboard, outside St Matthew-in-the-City, shows two model brides kissing atop a wedding cake, with the text 'We don't care who's on top'.

It comes as Labour MP Louisa Wall's bill on marriage equality is expected to pass its first reading in Parliament later today." (read it all at the NZHerald)

St Matthew-in-the-City is the infamous "church" in N.Z. that put up some outrageous Christmas billboards a couple of times in the past. Archdeacon Glynn Cardy was the instigator then, and I guess he is still at it (judging by the title of one of his recent sermons "Jesus Did NOT Die for Our Sins").

Folks, this is the picture of the progressive church that you have all been clamoring for.

A church where you can have your cake and... er....um... eat it two.

  1. Hello, UndergroundPewster -- I think that's the same church that put up the controversial Christmas hoarding (billboard) a few years ago. It is a progressive parish and enjoys that kind of thing.

    All the best

  2. I'm so sorry -- I missed your paragraph above where you recount the story about Glynn Cardy and the Christmas controversy. My apologies; please feel free to delete my comments on this post.
