Swiss Protestant church network votes in favor of same-sex marriage
“The member churches gathered together in the Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches agree that the fullness of the divine act of creation is reflected in the variety of sexual orientations,” a draft of the legislation reads.
In June, the federation’s assembly of delegates adopted an official position stating that “God wants us the way we were created.”
“We cannot choose our sexual orientation,” the assembly’s position statement reads. “We see it as an expression of created abundance.”
The part that stood out to me is the consistency between the teachings of Christ that we are loved in the fullness of our creation and the scientific fact that sexual orientation is not a choice.
Question: Should Christians be sorrowful for the slow rate of progress on this issue or simply pleased that it is finally happening at all?
