This post is open to anyone to comment on any topic that isn’t spam, illegal or offensive. All Your NZ posts are open but this one is for you to raise topics that interest you, or you think may interest others.. 

If providing opinions on or summaries of other information also provide a link to that information. Bloggers are welcome to summarise and link to their posts. Comments worth more exposure may be repeated as posts. Comments from other forums can be repeated here, cut and paste is fine.

Your NZ is a mostly political and social issues blog but not limited to that, and views from anywhere on the political spectrum are welcome. Some ground rules:

  • If possible support arguments, news, points or opinions with links to sources and facts.
  • Please don’t post anything illegal, potentially defamatory or abusive.

FIRST TIME COMMENTERS: Due to abuse by a few, first comments under any ID will park in moderation until released (as soon as possible but it can sometimes take a while).

Sometimes comments will go into moderation or spam automatically due to mistyped ID, too many links (>4), or trigger text or other at risk criteria. If they pass muster they will be released as soon as possible (it can sometimes take hours).

    I see One News didn’t show the gay folk who turned up at Destiny Church receiving koha. Each received $200 of other peoples money. Great work if you can get it.

    Richard Lewis must think Christmas has come early.

      I see that you didn’t see that they didn’t keep it.

        A koha is, by definition, other people’s money. Who is given or gives themselves a koha of their own money ?

        Rainbow Youth refused the money which was given to two speakers who were invited to attend and didn’t just ‘turn up’ at Destiny.

        Richard Lewis hasn’t been with Destiny for some time, I believe.

    I’m going to hell! Oysters and polyester!

    “The Levitical laws were received by Moses from God as the guidelines which the Israelites (who had fled Egypt during the Exodus) were to abide by in order to retain God’s favour. There are 613 of these laws and they also command that the Israelites were not to eat shellfish or wear garments made from mixed fabrics.

    If Folau and Tamaki are going to base their homophobia on Bible verses written thousands of years ago without any recognition of the need to contextualise these, I would ask them if they then refrain from eating oysters and always check to make sure a t-shirt is pure cotton and not blended with polyester before wearing it?” 😊

      The shellfish rule made sense in the days before most people could keep things cold and fresh in a hot climate.

      The weaving rule is only for wool and linen, nothing else. They are specified.

        Does it say that eating shellfish and weaving two fabrics together is punished by being sent to Hell ?

        If so, where ?

        I think that they result in ‘defilement’ but not eternal damnation, unless I have missed something.

      They are not quite right about the idea that homosexuality wasn’t recognised until the 19th century (in the sense of people being it, not just having gay sex) I am sure that the Ladies of Llangollen were before the c.19, and there are other famous gay couples (Edward II and Piers Gaveston were among them)
