Is a married PM important?

LETTER

New Zealand has not had an unmarried Prime Minister for 75 years, since Michael Joseph Savage, the first Labour Prime Minister. History records that all of our Prime Ministers believed that the state was at the service of the natural family, which consisted exclusively of one man and one woman. They were all committed to defending and promoting the natural family, which they believed was the foundation of a healthy society.

New Zealand is fortunate in having a married Prime Minister with six children. This is a great example for our children and grandchildren. A married Prime Minister also has a compelling interest in the future of our country, because of his children.

A government orientated towards the public welfare and responsible parents owes it to the next generation to prepare them for natural marriage exclusively of one woman and one man and family.

The electorate has a right and a duty to ensure that they elect those who are going to defend and promote the family, and be role models for our children and grandchildren.

Manu, idiots are still people and are allowed to be alive and have an opinion - even if you don't agree with them.

Shirley what are you on? What a load of garbage!

Totally agree Peter - on the contrary, I welcome idiots sharing our opinions and I'm not entirely opposed to us being alive. I'm just surprised there are some still alive with opinions like this one. I thought these kinds of views were so out of date that those who held them would have died out last century.
