The Australian Greens have warmly welcomed the Uniting Church decision to allow ministers to marry LGBTIQ couples.

“This is a great step forward by the Uniting Church and I would like to extend my thanks and congratulations from the Australian Greens,” said Senator Janet Rice, Australian Greens LGBTIQ spokesperson.

“Love is at the heart of Christianity - this decision from the Uniting Church is a reflection of that and will be welcomed by thousands of LGBTIQ Uniting Church members and the broader community.”
