Marriage is for companionship not procreation

Published 17/02/2014

WITH reference to Cynthia Campbell's letter about same-sex laws (Write Back, February 12).

As marriage is ordained by God in the first place as being not for procreation, but for companionship (Genesis 2:18), then you might consider that anything suggested by man as being a marriage does actually make it one.

Procreation is not mentioned until after the Fall.

As the founder of Faith and Pride, I would like to invite all gay Christians and their friends to any of our meetings. For details visit
