Campaign Against Civil Unions 27 November

The Campaign against the Civil Union and Relationships Bills www.civil-unions.org contact@civil-unions.org

Press Release 27 November 2004

The Campaign against the Civil Union and Relationships bills believes New Zealanders should be warned that there is a clear pro-homosexual agenda aligned with and underlying the current social engineering programme of the Labour Government (supported by the equally left-leaning Greens), which seeks to destroy our Christian-based culture by making homosexual practices and lifestyle choice normative, mainstream and protected by “hate-speech” legislation.

Already we have seen that this government has appointed an openly anti-Christian transsexual Ms Jacquie Grant to the Human Rights Review Tribunal who considers the dissemination of literature opposed to homosexual practice and homosexual marriage or civil unions to be a “hate crime”. At the same time the Government Administration Committee is investigating proposing “hate speech” legislation to Parliament.

We challenge any MP to openly quote and identify in parliament anything on our website or in our literature that establishes that we have committed a “hate crime” and/or engaged in “hate speech” and provide the reasons and the grounds for the reasons for making such a claim(s).

We believe that all the opposition parties must oppose this government’s pro-homosexual agenda and vote down these civil union and relationships bills and refuse to be a party to this ongoing liberal social engineering, evident in the legalising of prostitution and the sanctioning of abortions on teenage girls being kept secret from concerned and loving parents by public officials.

This government has made homosexual appointments to key committees and quasi-judicial bodies like the Human Rights Review Tribunal, and the Censor’s Office, with the chief film censor, a Canadian, being a practising homosexual and one who has approved brutally violent sexually explicit films and sexually degrading videos to be disseminated legally in New Zealand via public theatres and for private home use. These decisions have been supported by his deputy, Ms Nicola McCully, a known lesbian.

Similarly, Englishman MP Tim Barnett, a practising homosexual and “gay” activist, has long had an agenda to change the society and values our grandparents and parents fought for on the battles fields of the Somme, Gallipoli in WW1 and in other theatres in WW2. We know that Barnett’s desire to change our society dates from not long after the time of his arrival to these shores.

Investigate magazine has quoted the 10th May, 2001 issue of the homosexual newspaper Express which had invited Tim Barnett “to outline his objectives for the future”. Investigate lists the key points:

"We will not have a queer-friendly government forever. I believe there is a real urgency to completing the equal-rights agenda, so that moving backwards becomes totally unthinkable and untenable, so that over ensuing generations, attitudes can finally come right." "We know much more than most about what Government could do and is doing, and we have the luxury of being full-time stirrers."

"As queer politicians, our mission is to deliver equal rights under the law, and ensure that the Government machine is working for our community." Under "unfinished business", Mr Barnett listed his agenda: "Recognition of our relationships, offering the same rights that marriage confers (I am currently working on a civil union model). "Access to marriage as an additional option to civil union." "Comprehensive action to make all our school environments safe for young people coming out as queer.

That should include access to counselling, protection from discrimination by staff, or fellow students – and inclusion of relevant studies in the curriculum." "Recognition in law of the existence and absolute unacceptability of homophobia (and other forms of hate), as a motivating factor in criminal acts." Investigate adds: ‘Prime Minister Helen Clark told the Express newspaper (21 June, 2001) that although she had not seen a draft of the bill,

"I did encourage Tim to take up the issue."’ Tim Barnett wants a pro-homosexual curriculum taught in all our public schools and “Recognition in law of the existence and absolute unacceptability of homophobia….” This self-serving immoral agenda must be resisted by all decent-minded New Zealanders.
