AT the same time bills to legalise same-sex marriage were introduced in Federal Parliament yesterday a church in Wallsend was expressing its opposition.
Wallsend Presbyterian Church on Nelson Street updated its message board last week and session clerk Doug Smiley confirmed it was in response to the proposed legislation.
The message displayed read, ‘‘Even tradies know you need both male and female joints to make a marriage’’.
Mr Smiley was unashamed in expressing his position on same-sex marriage.
‘‘It’s against religious principles, the world runs around creation and the world was created by God,’’ he said.
‘‘God created man and woman to procreate children.’’
Mr Smiley said the message would stay as it was.
