Family Integrity: Calling Good Evil
I converted to Christianity at age 23, some 33 years ago, from a life of hedonism. I understand the terms "debauchery" and "licentiousness" and how destructive they are.
But this Government has tried to remove the social stigma attached to the irresponsible lifestyles of debauchery and licentiousness by enhancing the legal status of homosexuals and de factoes, fully legalising prostitution, allowing younger people freer access to alcohol, refusing to replace the unrepresentative and thoroughly desensitised film censors, pushing condom use in schools, allowing party drug use to grow, fostering an abortion-on-demand environment and ensuring contraceptive and abortion supply are the only medical areas where children don't need parental knowledge or consent. "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil," says Isaiah 5:20.
Being personally convinced of the Bible's definitions of what constitutes good and evil, like thousands of other New Zealand parents, I am unafraid to shoulder my responsibilities toward my children and toward society by using reasonable force, including smacking, to correct my children's expressions of evil, anti-social behaviour. Woe to me if I don't. This is a social good the Government is trying to claim is an evil by repealing Section 59.
Why is this Government being so irrational, anti-family and anti-Christian, that it will gladly commit untold damage to good families via Police investigations and untold abuse and trauma to children via CYFS intervention?
