Having attacked the same institution for its irrelevancy, it now champions it as a ”protected right”.
That’s the mindset of the Left. The real objective of course is to further dilute the idea of man and woman marriage, once and for all, if means everything, than it means nothing at all.
Archbishop Kari Mäkinen, leader of Finland’s state-supported Evangelical Lutheran church, has hailed Friday’s vote allowing same-sex marriage.
“I know how much this day means to the rainbow community, their loved ones and many others. I rejoice with my whole heart for them and with them,” he wrote in a Facebook post on Friday afternoon.
Mäkinen also praised those behind the citizens’ initiative that brought the issue to a parliamentary vote, and those who took part in the debate in various ways.
“Time for reconsideration”
“Our concept of marriage needs a fundamental examination. Speaking for myself, I think it is time for reconsideration. It will take place from the standpoint of the church’s own principles,” he said.
