Political Correctness Seminars: Register Now!

Fri 13 Feb 2004 In: Features

The NZ anti-gay organisation Maxim is rallying the troops... you too can go along to their seminars and see what they're up to! In the wake of a call for Christian organisations (read: fundamentalist Christians) to get themselves onto school boards so they can insinuate their bigotry and apranoia into the nation's schools comes this call by the fundamentalist Maxim group which is targetting the New Zealand education system in it's crusade to clean up our country. The following is verbatim material from their website which you can visit at (Words in [square brackets] are's.) Maxim states: "The debate over PC, whether in the universities or in the public square, is a controversy central to an understanding of who we are. Promoters of a PC agenda seek to control society and culture through engineering "acceptable" language and thought. Opponents are labelled sexist, racist and homophobic. They in turn see and fear a tyranny of PC "do-gooders" and a threat to free speech. PC is the battleground that shapes the cultural war. The Maxim Institute Forum 2004 will explore the implications of this struggle on New Zealand society. Join us for a day that will inform and inspire you! Christchurch 20 March, 9.00am-5.00pm, Girls HIgh Auditorium $75.00 includes lunch
