Civil Union Celebrants

Back on Jan the 10th I criticised the NZ Herald story which was headlined “Marriage celebrants ‘shun’ civil unions”.

As has also noted, the headline was wrong as today we read in The Press that there is a rush to become civil union celebrants with 138 applicants in just a week.

And in an act of stupidity an 84 year old marriage celebrant has quit because he does not want to do 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 , so that I won’t have to drink any more vodka!
