Family First leads crusade to "protect" marriage

Mon 30 Jul 2012 In: New Zealand Daily News

Bob McCoskrie Conservative group Family First has launched a website which it says is designed to protect the current definition of marriage as “one man one woman”. The website is is in response to the private member’s bill of Labour MP Louisa Wall, which was pulled from the Ballot last week. “The website will provide research, latest news, quotes of interest, free downloadable resources about the role and function of marriage, and will host an online petition which will be presented to Parliament,” says the group’s frontman Bob McCoskrie. “Politicians have been hammered recently with the reasons for taking the twink bottle to the dictionary and to redefine ‘marriage’. This website will help balance the debate. Ultimately, the state – which did not invent marriage – has no authority to re-invent it.”
