Sweden: Pastors Told They Cannot Refuse to Marry Same-Sex Couples

The Swedish government has told the Church of Sweden that ministers cannot refuse to marry same-sex couples.

The Christian Institute reports that Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven declared that pastors of the Church of Sweden ought to be required to wed same-sex couples, paying little heed to their assessments on homosexuality and gay marriage.

“[N]o minister in the Swedish Church can decline to wed same-sex couples,” expressed Löfven. “On the off chance that you function as a maternity specialist you should have the capacity to perform premature births, else you need to accomplish something else. It is the same for clerics who would prefer not to perform same-sex relational unions,” he included.

At present, serves in the Swedish state church are permitted to quit performing weddings, submersions, and funerals for any reason, so this would be a noteworthy change in approach.

In spite of the fact that expecting priests to wed same-sex couples is not yet obligatory, Sweden’s national supporter SVT announced that the PM is in help of making it so.

Sweden legitimized gay marriage in 2009, yet the congregation has been a great deal more mindful of completely grasping it.

Acknowledgment of gay marriage in holy places around Europe is developing. Toward the finish of May, as ChristianHeadlines.com already revealed, the Church of Scotland voted to appoint pastors who were in same-sex relational unions. The Scottish Church does, be that as it may, enable individual assemblages to quit this modified position on marriage in the event that they pick.
