The Seventh-day Adventist Church leadership in Uganda has rejected the proposed marriage and divorce bill although parliament has insisted on passing it.
The Seventh-day Adventist leader in the Central Uganda Conference, Bishop James Kaggya says that the bill is totally useless as it is likely to tantamount the godliness of marriage.
Speaking at Mityana Seventh-day Adventist Church on Saturday, Bishop Kaggya said that marriage matters should be left to churches and religious leaders not politicians.
“Marriage is an institution established by God and the most proponents of godly matters are the pastors. But to my surprise, I have not seen any Member of Parliament coming to consult from me over the matter,” Kaggya said.
He said that in church marriage is considered a lifetime commitment and no one can institute divorce other than God.

It is pretty much covered in three scripture passages found in three different places in the Bible. Mathew 24:14; 28:19-20; ‘Three Angels Messages’ in Revelation 14:6-12.
