A new anti divorce group said today it is setting up billboards around Malta to oppose divorce because 'Christ does not want it'.

The group - Kristu Iva, Divorzju le - says it is composed of lay people who are not directly linked to the Church.

The billboards show the face of Christ with the words Kristu Iva, Divorzju Le.

Spokespersons  Josette Bonello and Clyde Attard said this morning that the choice for the Divorce referendum was a straightforward one. For Christian, the choice was between the word of God, who does not want divorce, and the voice of those  in the world who wanted to break up what God had united.

Christians, they insisted, should base themselves on the word of God and have faith that even when there were marriage problems, God  would help them through.
