Perhaps Margaret Wilson should actually follow the prayer

I object most strenuously to having atheists ruling our country.

How do I know they are atheists, well because Helen Clark doesn't even know that Seventh Day Adventists are in New Zealand and proved that by asking dumb questions of one and ignoring the fact that ADRA is one of the largest development and relief agencies in NZ in receipt of government funding and for her unending attacks on the Exclusive Brethren for having the temerity to put their money where their beliefs lie.

Further evidence is the intoning of the Parliamentary Prayer each day by Margaret Wilson without ever honouring the intent of the prayer.

[quote]Almighty God, humbly acknowledging our need for Thy guidance in all things, and laying aside all private and personal interests, we beseech Thee to grant that we may conduct the affairs of this House and of our country to the glory of Thy holy name, the maintenance of true religion and justice, the honour of the Queen, and the public welfare, peace, and tranquillity of New Zealand, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.[/quote]

Powerful words, how about the Speaker starts by upholding them and holding our government and our atheist Prime Minister to account. For someone who went to a cCatholic School she should know better.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
