Bob McCoskrie is running the old “gay marriage leads to polygamy” line…despite no evidence of it ever have done so in the world…anywhere.
Family First national director Bob McCoskrie says the push for same-sex marriage in New Zealand is a stepping-stone to legalising polygamy.
Mr McCoskrie said a new poll by Key Research that showed 53.9 per cent of respondents supported gay marriage was an indicator that fewer people were in favour of marriage reform compared to a year ago.
He said the number had dropped from 63 per cent in a May poll, as people “got past the slogan of “marriage equality’ and debated the real impact of redefining marriage”.
“There is absolutely no need to redefine marriage to provide legal recognition and protection for same-sex relationships,” he said.
If the argument was “about real equality” then it would mean a push to legalise multiple marriages or marriages between teenagers, Mr McCoskrie said.
“If you’re talking about real equality that means it should be available to anybody. That includes three or four who want to get married, that includes teenagers who want to get married, …married people who want to marry somebody else at the same time.
“It’s on the agenda and everybody knows it. It’s on the long-term agenda.”
Show us the evidence of this agenda, Bob. It only exists in your mind…but since he raises polygamy…where is the problem?
My policy is this…if someone wants to have multiple Mothers in Law then they are welcome to it.
The next line Bob will run is that gay marriage leads to people wanting to marry their dog or pet goat.
One thing is for sure Family First is not about all families, it is only about families that Bob likes.
