Archbishop Joseph Harris does not agree with the term “same-sex marriage.”

Yesterday, he told reporters at his residence in St Clair, Port-of-Spain, after a press conference, that gay marriages “should not even be called same-sex marriage.”

“Marriage is between a man and a woman,” he said. “It is not between two men, or two women.”

Asked for his views on the issue of gay marriages, Harris said, “I do not believe by any means” that God approves a union between two men, or two women.

The provision in the marriage laws, which provides for only a male and female union, he said, was not archaic.

Marriage between man and woman, he said, is God’s law.

“We live in an age,” he said, “where people believe they don’t need God anymore, and God’s law doesn’t matter.”

Some think that their law is more important than God’s, he said, because they think their desires, pleasures, and whatever else, are more important than God’s law.

Certain values, he said, do not change simply because the world changes.

Religion in general, he said teaches values about love, and love for each other, generosity and lack of selfishness. “Those are values which are perennial,” he said, noting that because some of these values were not being maintained, society is experiencing many problems.
