He campaigned against same-sex marriage. Now, he’s blessed his daughter’s wedding to a woman.
The head of an Australian Catholic lobby group against same-sex marriage has attended and “blessed” the wedding of his daughter and her female partner.
Peter Westmore is the president of the National Civic Council of Australia (NCC), which has actively campaigned against same sex marriage for decades.
According to The Age, Mr Westmore has previously rallied against the legalisation of gay marriage in New Zealand, and lobbied the Australian government to not recognise international same-sex marriages.
As stated on its website, the NCC considers “the family” as one of its core values, and supports “policies which enhance intact families, rejection of lifestyles which undermine family values.”
However, on Tuesday Mr Westmore confirmed he attended his daughter Trish’s wedding to partner Christy in New Zealand last year.
