Capill Dismayed At Same Sex Marriage Idea
Shipley And Clark’s Same-Sex Marriage
Christian Heritage Leader Graham Capill has expressed dismay at the lack of moral leadership coming from the women in charge of the two largest Parties in the House.
Capill observed, “There appears to be a race between Jenny Shipley and Helen Clark over who will be the first to destroy the traditional family unit.
“That homosexual partners would push for greater recognition and the right to adopt children is bad enough. That our two women leaders, who should have the needs of children closest to their hearts, should endorse such moves is morally sick and irresponsible,” said Mr Capill.
He made these comments as the government received a discussion paper on giving greater recognition to homosexual relationships.
“Both Shipley and Clark have endorsed these moves, not only through their lack of leadership to stop these initiatives, but by attending the Hero Parade and specifically endorsing promotion of degeneracy.
“A large majority do not want homosexuals to adopt children,” Capill said.
Elements of both sides of the House have been promoting greater recognition of same-sex and de facto relationships. Sponsorship for these initiatives have centred this year on the De Facto Relationships (Property) Bill.
The Christian Heritage Party Leader went on to point out that research in the UK, Australia and New Zealand demonstrated that “de facto relationships are six times more likely to split than traditional marriages, while in Sweden, de facto and co-habiting relationships are four times more likely to break down.
“As for Shipley and Clark’s same-sex marriage,” noted Capill, “this flies directly in the face of what the people of New Zealand think on this matter. In fact, a recent survey by Massey University found that 62% of New Zealanders think that it is always wrong or almost always wrong for two adults of the same sex to have sexual relations.
“Shipley, and her partner in crime, Helen Clark, would have us take some leap into the dark and allow homosexual marriages in complete ignorance of the extensive literature that shows that de facto and same-sex relationships are less stable than traditional heterosexual marriages.
“Who will suffer?” asked Capill. “Those who cannot defend themselves – our nation’s children. Shipley and Clark have a vision of nothing less than a Frankenstein society, one in which social policy is determined by ad hoc vague ideas driven by policy gnomes in Wellington with nothing better to do than prepare papers with little regard to how their shallow and immoral policies will effect our children.”
Capill predicted that leadership would be a
real issue in the upcoming election and that “people wanted
leaders who were not politically correct weaklings, but were
prepared to take a firm stand on what is best for children
