Unknown Warrior hijacked for pagan purpose

6 December 2004

The hijacking of the Unknown Warrior for pagan purposes by Helen Clark and her government and the homosexual agenda

When the New Zealand troops went off to WW1 (1914-1918), my two grandfathers among them, they departed our shores to fight for freedom and decency. While not all churchmen, these men, nonetheless, had a high respect for Christian ethics, the Bible and the Ten Commandments. Theirs was an age when most believed God ruled from heaven; that there were moral absolutes or fixed ethical rules which could not be challenged by the ideas of men. New Zealand in those days was a land growing in prosperity through the universal values of thrift and hard work.

More specifically, the men and women of that era rejected much of what we see accepted today. They opposed prostitution; they abhorred homosexuality; and they were repelled by anything hinting of pornography. They held to the core biblical values of freedom, honesty and decency. When they went to war, they went to fight and die on the battlefields of the Somme and Gallipoli and other theatres of war precisely for their values.

You could not find a greater contrast between their social values and those accepted by many moderns than right here in New Zealand. And this is what made the recent ceremonies surrounding the return of the bones of an unknown solder from the First World War to New Zealand thoroughly profane and even blasphemous. By so blatantly associating themselves with this unknown soldier, his memory and the memory of all those who lived and died with him, the soldier and his world has been sullied in a most degrading manner.

Why is that? Well the values he fought for were poles apart from those of Helen Clark and the Labour government along with their soul-mates the Greens. In a year which has seen the most radical government ever to rule in this country impose upon New Zealand society and culture values totally foreign to our way of life, the government brought back the bones of a braver warrior to baptise the moral degradation and filth pouring out of Molesworth St. How cynical our government has become, when they would use the memory of the sacrifice of our brave men for biblical values to endorse the immorality of this Labour, homosexual-dominated government.

These men did not fight for the legalising of prostitution, the spread of pornography and the normalising of homosexual practices. They fought instead for what was good and right and true. We know, for they are our forbears, that were they able to speak today, they would denounce Helen Clark’s programme to normalise immorality; to encourage young teenage girls to abort without telling their parents, to ensure the growth of prostitution, and therefore STDs and organised crime; and to normalise homosexuality to such a degree that it will be taught in state schools as a valid alternative to heterosexual marriage.

They would denounce Helen Clark’s agenda to outlaw preaching against sin, especially the sin of homosexuality. They would be revolted by the homosexual dominated censor’s office which spreads vile and degrading videos and films through the homes of our suburbs and the cinemas of our towns and cities. They would be appalled at the appointment of anti-Christian transsexuals or transvestites to parliament and to the so-called Human Rights Review Tribunal.

Any members of this present parliament who would dare vote for the passing of this Civil Union legislation should stop and consider the values of our forefathers and look back to those paths which served us well. Mps like list member Mr Chowdray, who as a Muslim, may well want to see polygamy legalised in New Zealand, will change our culture and in the process destroy the lives of many. We urge Mps to listen to the voice of reason and to at the very least put this whole matter to a referendum. Or do they realise that were they to do so, the homosexual cause would be stopped in its tracks? It is time for all true patriotic New Zealanders to contact their Mps and urge them by all lawful means to vote down this evil bill to normalise homosexuality.
