Colin Craig has taken the Chris Christie approach to same-sex marriage, which is a half way house. At¬†least¬†he has the courage thought to say he opposes it:
Conservative Party leader Colin Craig says he is opposed to marriage between same-sex couples but he would support a referendum on the issue.
The Conservatives are yet to win representation in Parliament but they are polling higher than some of the Government’s current coalition partners.
A poll conducted by Colmar Brunton has found that 63 percent of New Zealanders think same-sex couples should be able to marry, while 31 percent are opposed. Civil unions between same-sex couples have been allowed in New Zealand since 2005.
Mr Craig told¬†Q+A¬†today that he would support a referendum on the issue.
Supporting a referendum is gay. We don’t really need to spend several million dollars to find out….for a man who is opposed to waste I would have thought wasting money on a referendum for a law change that will affect a few hundred people every year, costs nothing to implement and has no negative effect on society would¬†have¬†been something he would oppose.
