In less than two weeks from now on Wednesday March 13th the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill will have its crucial second reading.
The Select Committee has reported back and recommended among other things that the terms “bride” and “bridegroom” be removed from marriage certificates, and that the terms “husband” and “wife” be removed from 16 other pieces of legislation. This is not mere redefinition, it is complete deconstruction of the very meaning of what marriage is.
If you value marriage, it is time to act with urgency. MPs need to hear from you. Their contact details can be found at www.parliament.govt.nz
For reasons why the Bill is based on false premises – see my submission.
