Sydney Anglican diocese donates $1m to no campaign for same-sex marriage vote

From The Guardian-

The Sydney Anglican diocese has made a $1m donation to the no campaign in Australia’s postal survey on same-sex marriage.

Archbishop Glenn Davies announced the donation on Monday in his address to the 51st synod of the diocese of Sydney, telling the church that “removing gender from the marriage construct” would have “irreparable consequences” for society.

“Brothers and sisters, the stakes are high and the cost is high,” Davies said.

“Yet the cause is just and it is a consequence of our discipleship to uphold the gift of marriage as God has designed it – a creation ordinance for all people.”

He said he made “no apology” for encouraging Australians and Anglicans to vote no.
