Make the Marriage Pledge
It’s quite sad that our politicians have ignored thousands of our submissions, ignored calls for a referendum on this massive cultural change. As ProtectMarriage.org.nz aptly states, these politicians “have demanded their right for a conscience vote, yet have voted to ignore the consciences of celebrants, registrars, churches hosting weddings, and others in the wedding industry. They are ramming this bill through without giving it the due consideration and debate it deserves.”
These MPs of ours, however, cannot ignore us at the ballot box. So make a stand, make a marriage pledge, so you can be heard:
• Not use your electorate vote to vote for an electorate MP who supports changing the definition of marriage; and
• Not use your party vote to vote for a political party whose party leader supports changing the definition of marriage.
Unless David Cunliffe, the MP for New Lynn where we live changes his mind, my husband and I are certainly not voting for him come the next elections and will actively dissuade people from voting from him, too.
What about your MP, what is his/her stand on this pertinent issue?
