Church council demands gay marriage rights
Therefore, the council has now written letters to both the parliamentary committee on ecclesiastical affairs and to the Minister for Ecclesiastical Affairs, Birthe Rønn Hornbech, urging them to safeguard equal rights for homosexuals, writes daily newspaper Berlingske Tidende.
– We can no longer accept that politicians are on the fence on this issue, so we have now made them aware of our wishes, says president of the parochial church council, Torben Larsen.
