Family First’s McCroskrie handed his balls by Lynda Topp

If you’re going to pick a fight with people, at least have the balls to stand behind your own words

Entertainer Lynda Topp has married her partner Donna Luxton at their home in Staveley, in the foothills of the Southern Alps.

And yes, Topp is adamant “marriage” is the correct word to describe their union.

In a fiery statement issued this week, Topp blasted an anti-gay marriage group for trying to hijack her ceremony.

Family First leader Bob McCoskrie tried to use Topp’s ceremony to make a point for his cause. In his blog on March 1, with links to Protect Marriage NZ, McCoskrie congratulated Topp and Luxton for choosing a civil union.

He said by doing so they showed there was no need to legalise gay marriage.

Topp, one half of country music duo the Topp Twins, retorted: “WRONG. We do not believe in civil union.

It is discrimination, My partner and I are getting married, so there. PS, would appreciate it if this website did not use our good name to promote … anti-marriage views for the gay and lesbian community.”

McCoskrie removed his comments and thanked Topp for “clarifying”.

Asked if he wished Topp and Luxton well, McCoskrie said: “I wish everybody well.”

      Already too much information about your private life , starbored .

      Try the comments section on Yahoo Xtra to communicate with your kinfolk .

      There ain’t none here.

        ” kinfolk “…lol ! You obviously haven’t been told today have you Ron.

    • Lion_ess

      Your comment made me laugh, even if I don’t share your sentiments. I used to think the Topp Twins were cringeworthy too, however after watching their movie “Untouchable Girls”, I think they’re really brave. New Zealand would be a better country if more people were unafraid of standing up for who they are and what they believe in.

      Oh my, homosexuals that you do not like, there is a surprise.

  • PlanetOrphan

    Amazing how people will try and put words in your mouth and make bullshit assumptions about your thinking.

    One wonders were they get the inspiration from …. Dreams are free I guess.
    McCoskrie the scab at work.

  • cows4me

    Good luck to them, I hope they have a happy life. Don’t agree with their definition of a marriage but I’m sure they don’t agree with mine.

  • LesleyNZ

    The correct term is “gay” marriage. “Gay” marriage will never be the same as traditional heterosexual marriage – no matter what Lynda Topp thinks or says.

    • Lion_ess

      I think you’ll find that the correct term is marriage and that most people are not bothered by others having sexual relationships with members of their own sex – no matter what you think or say.

      • Bunswalla

        It’s not a legal marriage, no matter what you think or say.

        • Lion_ess

          I was referring to the future state, rather than the ceremony performed last week.

        • Gayguy

          The law will say otherwise.

      • starboard

        Your assumption is wrong… many people are bothered by it…commonly known as the silent majority.

        • ever growing minority – get it right

          Lets see what the Census 2013 results will have to say for themselves. Going to see “it” slip below 50 for the first time?

        • Gayguy

          Prove it. Every poll done says otherwise.

          Even the Queen is speaking out for equality for all tomorrow on live television. You are a dying breed SB.

          • starboard

            No. you fucking prove it. What polls? Where ? When? No one asked me. I suppose if you polled within your own circle of deviants and sodomists the only outcome would be positive. Get real gg .

          • Gayguy

            Polls all over the media dumbarse. They have been everywhere, but not surprising that you pretend otherwise.

            And just because you were not polled does not mean it is not true. I have never been polled for a political poll, yet even though I prefer otherwise, National is still the Government.

            Your hate is blinding you to your own demise and by the end of this week we will be one step closer to people like you having a stroke because marriage eqauality is enevatable.

          • starboard

            Show me a poll then

          • Gayguy

            As requested here is one poll.


            Took me 0.24 seconds to search it.

            Now any other requests will have to wait till I get back from work.

            Bye hater.

          • starboard

            LOL ! A stuff poll..LMFAO…you loser.

          • Gayguy

            Idiot, read it properly. Stuff is reporting on the poll.

            Fuck you are stupid.

    • The correct term is marriage (although in a legal sense it is after the Bill is signed off by the GG)

      Lesley go study Social Construction again – marriage is technically one and you just did it quite nicely with “gay” marriage and “traditional heterosexual marriage” so job well done for splitting it into two…

      If I take the strict definition for marriage it is basically what it has been seen in most cultures since dot – a (often business) transaction and an institution: “Marriage (also called matrimony or wedlock) is a social union or legal contract between people called spouses that establishes rights and obligations between the spouses, between the spouses and their children, and between the spouses and their in-laws.[1] The definition of marriage varies according to different cultures, but it is principally an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged. ”

      Christian Marriage is a social construction and institution spawned off from the legal version as a part of “culture” that humans develop.

      As Christianity is not the world “standard” with our many peoples on this Earth – it can not and I do not expect the state to facilitate it – hold a monopoly

      Also I am waiting to see reactions if the identity of “Christian” drops below 50% of the population for the first time in NZ when the Census results come out.

    • Gayguy

      Wrong as usual. The correct term is marriage. And to imply that someones marriage is less than equal because of sexuality will be illegal.

      And before you get your knickers in a knot, it is already illegal to say a persons marriage is “less than”.

      • BR

        So it will be illegal to say things that might upset the poor widdle homosexuals?


        • Gayguy

          No dumbarse.

          The law that states it is illegal to denigrate anyone’s marriage, imply it is less than etc.. will be extended to protect all kiwis and the hate filled scum can be dealt with.

          • BR

            What law?


      • LesleyNZ

        Gayguy – traditional heterosexual marriage and homosexual marriage are not the same. You are the one getting your knickers in a knot.

        • Gayguy

          Yes they are.

  • BR

    McCoskrie should have said that he didn’t support homo civil unions either.


  • grumpy
  • Starboard, for someone who claims to be straight, a quick glance at your comment history reveals someone who seems to be obsessed with talking about gay sex… Its ok, come out of the closet!
