Incest Debate A Predicted Outcome of Redefining Marriage

Incest Debate A Predicted Outcome of Redefining Marriage

Family First NZ says that nobody should be surprised that the debate to redefine marriage has now progressed to the status of incest between consenting adults.

“We predicted this would happen,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ. “And the ACT leader’s comments are not ‘academic’ answers. They are the reality of where this argument is headed now that we have redefined marriage.”

“As we argued in our submission on the gay marriage bill, “Allowing only same-sex marriage on the basis of love and commitment would discriminate against those seeking polygamous, group, and consensual adult incest-type marriages.” Why would discrimination against these loving adults be ok? They may be illegal now, but it wasn’t that long ago that same-sex marriage was illegal also.”

“At the time of our warning, the politicians acted horrified and offended – but anyone with logical thinking knew that this was the outcome, whether intended or not.”

“In passing the ‘shot-gun’ same-sex marriage bill, Parliament chose to reject the obvious cultural and natural character of marriage and the subsequent creation and care of children, and made marriage just about partnership,” says Mr McCoskrie.

“Ironically, marriage now has become meaningless. We are using the word to describe something else – not commonly or traditionally conceived, but conceived by politics and political correctness.”

“The argument for incestuous relationships between consenting adults is a natural progression of the flawed argument which led to redefining marriage.”

Pukeahu Park : ANZAC 100th Anniversary Dawn Service In Pictures

Roughly 18,000 people gathered this morning at Pukeahu Memorial Park for the Anzac day centenary. Anticipating the large turnout, patrons arrived as early as 4.30. It was virtually impossible to get near the Memorial after 5am. By 6, the crowds on Taranaki Street had stretched as far back as the Z Petrol station.

The screens erected around the park displayed the live events to those who had turned up. The heat generated by the huge number of people caused many to take a turn. Medics and ambulances were on hand for the fainting crowd members. Only twenty minutes into the ceremony, one medic said they had already dealt with 15 to 20 spells. More>>

War: What’s To Commemorate?

Beyond, that is, a fleeting sense of empathy with the thousands of soldiers killed or wounded on April 25 1915 and in the months thereafter, until the whole thing was finally called off in December 1915.
