Media Release Sunday 25th Aug 2013
Right to Life is disappointed at the government’s shameful promotion of New Zealand as an international tourist destination for homosexual couples to obtain a marriage licence.
Parliament gave great offence to God by defying Him and arrogantly passing without authority the Marriage [Definition of Marriage] Amendment bill. Further offence is given to God by the celebration and promotion of same sex marriage In New Zealand.
It is reported in the media that Tourism NZ hosted a same sex marriage at Te Papa. A spokesperson for Tourism NZ claimed that there were hopes of boosting foreign “weddings” by 1,000. It is understood that the government paid for eight guests and for the celebrations. In addition to this promotion a lesbian couple had their ceremony on board a flight from Queenstown after winning a competition run by our national carrier, Air New Zealand in which the government has the major shareholding. The actions of Tourism NZ and Air New Zealand are bringing the good name of New Zealand into disrepute. Right to Life requests that to protect the good name of New Zealand and the good name of Air New Zealand, that the government use its influence to stop any further promotions of New Zealand as a destination for same sex marriages.
These promotions are part of the agenda of the homosexual lobby to have the community accept homosexual relationships as normal, to be celebrated and promoted. The majority of New Zealanders who uphold what has been known since the dawn of civilisation, that the institution of marriage is exclusively for one man and one woman are offended by these promotions. They will never accept same sex marriages as being acceptable or normal. They are determined to oppose this farcical law by refusing to accept it, to co-operate with it and will not rest until this unjust law is repealed from our statutes.
