November 10, 2008 by Brendan Malone Director Family Life International – NZ
[Family Life International – a Catholic pro-life organisation – was registered as a charity with the Charities Commission on 28 April 2008 (Reg. No. CC23462)].
Well we have a new government, but while all the attention has been focusing on John Key and the National party, the latest member of the Green party to make it into parliament has received very little attention.
His name is Kevin Hague, and he will be a concern for those of us who care about marriage and family issues in NZ.
Firstly, he is the former head of the NZ AIDS Foundation – a gay lobby group [and registered charity] that has been responsible for some of the most immoral and obscene “safe” sex campaigns in NZ (one recent campaign even involved a website which gave tips on “cruising” – the practice of meeting strangers in public places for anonymous homosexual sex).
Secondly, in a recent interview with GAYNZ.com he stated that he considers the following issues a priority for his time in parliament…
1. Gay adoption
2. Full gay marriage
3. “Resourcing” for gay youth groups
4. Removing the right of NZ schools to say no to gay activist groups like Rainbow Youth
Remember the Greens already have Metiria Turei back again – the Green MP who has a bill to legalise gay adoption in NZ, and who lists “anarchist activism” as one of the aspects of her life experience over the last 20 years.
Make no mistake about it, Hague is an MP who is almost certainly going to be of concern to those of us who care about marriage and family issues in this country.
