Don’t put aside morals

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

With re­gard to Porirua City Coun­cil’s de­fi­ant en­dorse­ment of same-sex mar­riage, your pa­per re­ports that coun­cil­lor ’Ana Cof­fey says that Je­sus ‘‘put aside moral and cul­tural con­ven­tions of his day’’.

If she takes this to mean that ho­mo­sex­ual prac­tice is there­fore ac­cept­able to God this is mis­lead­ing. What Je­sus did put aside was the hypocrisy of the Pharisees, the reli­gious lead­ers.
