Annette King is suddenly all tolerant when Shane Jones and a few other MPs spoke at Destiny Church’s meeting at the weekend.
Asked about Mr Jones’ attendance at the conference, Labour deputy leader Annette King said MPs were allowed to go most places.
“I haven’t really got a comment to make whether he went to Destiny Church, Catholic church, to Presbyterian church or no church.”
She had no comment about Destiny Church’s views.
She does however have numerous views on whether or not people can make appointments or meet with the Exclusive Brethren

Hon ANNETTE KING … and now there is no accountability as to where that money came from, what trust it came from, whether it was from the Exclusive Brethren, or whether it was from the fishing industry, the insurance industry, or the tobacco industry. The money went into the …
Hon ANNETTE KING … vehicle it is—controlled and managed by Mr Browne, along with Mr McCully, to hide its donations from people like the Exclusive Brethren. I think any questions about the Spencer Trust would have to be directed to New Zealand First.

Electoral Finance Bill—Interpretation of Clause 80(d) 6 Dec 2007

Another classic case of weapons grade hypocrisy from Annette King. Every other denomination in new Zealand is fine for Labour MPs to meet but not the Exclusive Brethren. For them Annette King and Labour reserve nothing but denigration and abuse.
They are despicable hypocrites.
