Right to Life deplores the judgment of Justice Simon France in the High Court in Wellington on 31 August 2018. The judgment declared that the Charities Board was correct in cancelling the charity status of Family First, it is incoherent and unjust. Justice Simon France stated; “Its core purpose of promoting the traditional family unit cannot be shown to be in the public benefit in the charitable sense under the Act.”
The High Court and the Charities Board are inferring that all forms of family are equal. The traditional family of exclusively one woman and one man has been accepted by mankind since the beginning of time as the foundation stone of a healthy society. New Zealand was founded on the traditional family. Those who planned and organised the colonisation of New Zealand carefully selected traditional families to be the foundation of this new nation.
The claim of the Charities Board and the High Court that the traditional family is not the foundation stone for a healthy society is outrageous and an insult to every traditional family in New Zealand. It is the traditional family that gives security to women and to children. In marriage a man makes a public commitment to protect the mother of his children and to provide for his wife and children. The Judge has failed to explain why the traditional family does not serve society nor has he presented another form of family which is now superior or even equal. Now is the time for the traditional families of New Zealand to protest at this attack on the family.
Those citizens who are concerned for the future of New Zealand should be aware that there is an organised international campaign by the population controllers at the United Nations and in the European Union to promote the LGBTQ agenda with the objective of destroying the traditional family.
Right to Life fully supports and applauds Family First’s intention to appeal this shocking judgment to the Court of Appeal and encourages every citizen to support this appeal on behalf of the traditional families of New Zealand.
Right to Life calls upon the Labour led government to uphold its policy included in the Labour Party Manifesto in 2017. “Labour will ensure that community and voluntary organisations can engage in advocacy without fear of losing government contracts or their charitable status.”
