ajobbins:Klipspringer: Over 50% of kiwis are Christians so yes we really should be getting a Christian perspective.
If this debate was about changing a law that affected your rights and beliefs are a Christian, sure. It isn't. The law leaves all religious aspects of a marriage fully intact and changes only the legal aspect.
Religion has no relevance in this debate.
Then why do the gay rights advocates choose to make their arguments 'religious' in nature? Why do they insist that anyone objecting to their POV must be a hateful, bigoted christian?
BTW as any law change affects all New Zealanders, we all have the right to have an opinion on the law change, yet so many of those that support the law change say those who dont want it changed should not be allowed to have that opinion or be heard.
BTW I support the law change.
