The Charities Commission has advised Family First that,
The Board considers that Family First’s opinion(s)… are fairly described as controversial in contemporary NZ society”
We do not consider that Family First continues to qualify for registration as it has an independent purpose to promote and protect the traditional family-and this is not charitable.
Under the Act, promotion of a controversial point of view is a political purpose… Family First does not advance religion or education, nor promote a benefit to all New Zealanders as determined by the Act”
The Charities Act 2005 section 5  that a charitable purpose includes every charitable purpose whether it relates to the relief of poverty, the advancement of education or religion, or any other matter beneficial to the community.
Right to Life requests that the Charities Commission produce the evidence that the promotion of the traditional family is controversial and does not promote a benefit to all New Zealanders. Is the Commission going to suggest a replacement for the traditional family?
