Concerns Raised Over Minister and Gay Agenda

Concerns Raised Over Minister and Gay Agenda

Press Release 8 November 2007

The Society has grave concerns about the appropriateness of New Zealand having an "openly gay" Minister of Education, given his track record of aggressive pro-gay rights activism.

It is alarmed that the Minister, the Hon. Chris Carter, is now responsible, among other things, for ensuring that all our children and young persons are inculcated with the recently announced New Curriculum Values programme - that stresses among other things, "celebration of diversity" as a "core value" - a PC- code phrase for the acceptance and celebration of the homosexual and lesbian lifestyle as a valid alternative to normal heterosexual relationships and marriage.

The Society believes that most New Zealand parents DO want diversity celebrated - but only in the best sense of the word and this does NOT include celebrating immoral lifestyles. We greatly value cultural and racial diversity, the distinctive and unique contribution of the two genders, varied religious traditions and beliefs, as well as all the wonderful diversity among individuals. However, we do NOT want unnatural, unhealthy, immoral sexual practices central to the promiscuous heterosexual and/or homosexual/lesbian lifestyles, eithe
r taught, demonstrated, advanced, normalised, legitimised, validated, or proclaimed, in any shape or form in New Zealand school curriculum. Instead most New Zealanders want the lasting benefit of committed marriage between a man and woman, life-long fidelity, and good, loving, moral family values emphasised in any values programme.

They detest the fact that our schools are becoming the recruiting grounds for tax-payer funded and/or subsidised homosexual prosyletising activities run by Rainbow 'health' zealots, bent on foisting their "safe sex" and unnatural sex practices on vulnerable school children. These social engineering programmes are well underway - led by by those who have believed the lie that by normalising and celebrating homosexual sexual activity, young people will gain self-esteem and true happiness.

National won 46% of the vote with Labour on 35.8%. NZ First won 7.5%, with the Greens on 5.8%. ACT held on to Epsom, but failed to get more MPs. The Maori Party were wiped out of Parliament.

There are still special votes to be counted, but clearly National is in the box seat to form the next Government.
