Lewis Caroll Lives On................

Seldom does Adolf agree with Matt McCarten but today he does - and with Bill Ralston.

Both writers put thrust their journalistic javelins into the heart of the collective folly displayed by Copeland, Tamaki et al. And quite rightly.

It's almost as though Copeland, Tamaki and Lewis orchestrated their own crucifiction. Of course they will still be arguing about who should be the Messiah and who should be the common thieves.

Readers will know Adolf is a committed Christian who has long considered overtly Christian political parties to be akin to the Pharisees who prided themselves on declaring to the world how Godly they were. McCarten, somewhat with tongue in cheek, suggests God decided to intervene and bring about the destruction of the God Party. I don't know about that. God may well have much more important business at hand and with idiots like these at the helm He surely could rely on them to bring bout the desired result without the need for divine intervention.

I'd like to see a list of MPs and candidates who are Christians. These are the people who will exert genuine influence. People like Bill English and Chris Auchinvole. Are there others? Probably but I don't know who they are because they do not wear their religions on their sleeves.

Agreed wholeheartedly Adolf. I would regard a vote for a wholly Christian party as wasted, given the low probability of such a party reaching the 5% threshhold. I would far rather see Christians using their influence within existing parties.

You can add Chester Borrows to your list. As well as being a good,sensible and down-to-earth bloke, he is a lay preacher in the Presbyterian church. That gives me the best of both worlds - a Christian candidate to support in my own electorate, and the knowledge that at least one of the main parties is not Christophobic!

Did Christians vote for smacking bill which undermines the rights of kiwi parents ? Didn't Chester kiss Sue ?

Talk about the blatant betrayal of Christ like values .

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

I was going to write that much as I am comfortable and appreciative of things Christian I don't want a Christian Party or even a within Party cabal of Christians. That's because I believe a Bill English should bring to the political arena his knowledge, experience, intellect and his Catholicism *and* then make decisions in the interests of NZ as a whole community. His religion can help him in that process but it can't be allowed to make decisions against the interests of NZ Inc.

Christian Parties or cabals spell eletism and special interests to me and I don't want a bar of them.

But with the knowledge that two members of the Govt. have said that they are only gunning for the EBs and not the catholics in the EFB before the House, things have changed.

Now is the time for Copeland, English et al to stand up for the EBs, the new Jews of our country. There cannot be one law for one religion and not another.. and the Catholic Church needs to be upfront on this as well, or prove the slander of the Church and the Jews in the Holocaust might have some basis after all.

So yes, lets break with a fine Western tradition and lets know who these Christians are in the Parliament, and lets excoriate them if they dont fight this odious legislation.
