The Archbishop of the church of Uganda ,Stanley Ntagali cautioned Parliament against rushing to pass the Marriage and Divorce Bill .
Archbishop Ntagali says that that religious leaders are holding prayers to get a better position on the controversial Bill .Ntagali was speaking at a press conference held by the Uganda Inter Religious Council (UIRC) at their offices today.
“We are in praying to get a better position on this Bill to take care of the marriage institution. Marriage is a foundation of unity in our country. If it is passed carelessly, we might get problems in future,” Archbishop Ntagali said
The Archbishop added that legislators need more time to study the bill more carefully to come up with a good law on marriage .
He also revealed that religious leaders have not been comprehensively consulted on the Bill .
Ntagali also stressed that the cohabitation clause should not even have surfaced anywhere in the Bill because it has never been marriage at anyone moment.
Meanwhile the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church, Pastor Samuel Kajoba noted that if the Bill is passed in its current form, it is likely to promote domestic violence and moral degeneration in the country.
