Back on Jan the 10th I criticised the NZ Herald story which was headlined “Marriage celebrants ‘shun’ civil unions”.
And in an act of stupidity an 84 year old marriage celebrant has quit because he does not want to do gay civil unions. Doh! As long as he doesn’t apply to be a civil union celebrant he would not be able to perform a gay civil union ceremony so there is no need to quit as a marriage celebrant. It’s like me quitting drinking red wine, so that I won’t have to drink any more vodka!
