Text:One of New Zealand's most outspoken political opponents of equal rights for gays and lesbians has found a new job – as a police prosecutor. Former Christian Heritage leader Graham Capill has begun a new crusade to bring criminals to justice, confirming at the end of last month he had provisionally been awarded the "substantial" promotion to police prosecutor, just one year after stepping down from the hustings and starting work at the Police Southern Communications Centre in Christchurch as a radio dispatcher. Mr Capill said there was no scope for personal feelings or bias to get in the way of doing his job. He was bound as a lawyer to adhere to Law Society rules. "The moment I actually showed any bias at all in my comments, that would actually go against me." Mr Capill's successor as leader of Christian Heritage is Ewen McQueen, who is one of the confirmed speakers at Destiny Church's hate march to Parliament on 23 August.
