As far as “progressives” go they do want the end of the world ………. the world according to anyone else other than themselves.
Think it’s a joke? No.They “believe” in global warming,rising seas,hatred of our traditions,destroying western culture with mass immigration from the Muslim world,tearing apart the middle classes and our values…….. not funny at all.
“….The progressives…..tearing apart the middle classes and our values….”
They do this by getting society to value everything the same, hetrosexual relationships are now exactly the same as homosexual relationships, sodomy is anal ‘sex’, the anus is seen as being the same as a vagina, etc….but when society values everything the same, they infact value nothing.
But with the anti-abortion protest being taken-up by the next gen at university, and with the next gen joining en mass to religions of one sort or another, the progressives have made a grave miscalculation – they forgot where they came from – the ‘counter culture’ of youth! Cheers kowtow.
Me, I’m just holding out from the frothing fundies getting really hysterical and ranting about marriage-equality-leading-to-the-long-feared-zombie-apocalypse, myself.
And Harriet, everyone knows how abnormally countrified and inbred Queensland is. That’s why anyone with any sense or academic higher qualifications flees that state toward the relative sanity of NSW or Victoria as soon as they graduate-so it’s hardly an indicator of sane and sensible anything ie Joh Bjelke Petersen, Kevin Rudd and Pauline Hanson. And when it comes to New Zealand, society is becoming thankfully more secularised.

You can stop waiting and look in the mirror. Some of us would consider using the term “marriage equality” to be frothing in the first place, given that the term in no way describes what is being proposed.
Er, I was- I’m citing the latest census data from NZ. And teenagers drop their initial religious allegiances as soon as they leave childhood. Insofar as the older religions go, Christian adherence is nosediving, while Buddhism, spiritualism and Wicca are growing, as are Hinduism and Islam, in that order. It’s not Christianity picking up adherents here- it’s people revolted at the militant fundies and their temper tantrums and abject stupidity. Insofar as the other faiths go, they’re nothing near as bad.
Okay, obviously we’re not talking about al Qaeda, the Bharatiya Janata Party or Shiv Sena, or the Islamic Republic of Iran, or the Taliban other than here. Kiwi Muslims and Kiwi Hindus are gentler souls and thoroughly un-militant, as are Kiwi Buddhists. Loudmouth obnoxious fundie Christians, on the other hand…
