There are six things that the LORD strongly dislikes, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.[Proverbs 6:16–19]
Opening on the front foot here, The Conservative Party are a bunch of religious zealots that haven’t bothered to read-up on the recent failed attempts by similar ‘morally based’ political parties in New Zealand, that have tanked.
Future New Zealand, Christian Heritage, United New Zealand, United Future, Peoples Front of Judea (just taking the piss), Christian Democrats, Kiwi Party: all toast at the ballot boxes over the last two decades.
The Conservatives membership base, like their candidate for the Christchurch East by-election (Bi election?) Leighton Baker largely comes from the ashes of these failed parties.
So who is Leighton Baker, builder by day and moral crusader in his spare time?
In cases like this Google is a true ‘blessing’.
This is Mr Baker’s god-bothering rant/submission to Parliament against same-sex marriage.
Here are Mr Baker’s predicable opinions on Stem Cell, Abortion and Contraception.
That’s right Mr Baker was then with the Kiwi Party not so long ago.
So Leighton Baker is a ‘template’ for what a Conservative Party Candidate should be.
There is only one reason why the Conservative Party exists in the first place.
His name is Colin Craig and he has a lot of money.
The Conservatives are the vanity project and the public voice for millionaire Craig.
Mr Craig believes in compulsory military training, looney chem trail conspiracy, doubling tax on alcohol and modelling his political career on Sarah Palin.
Oh yeah silly of me to leave out Mr Yahweh from Mr Craig’s eclectic mix.
Gods book says beating kids is fine: so it's okay by him.
Craig clearly didn’t earn all his dosh by making stupid decisions.
He knows to be tainted as a ‘Christian Party’ in New Zealand is the equivalent of endorsing Graham Capill as deputy leader.
So let me spell this out clearly for the punters, just to piss them off: The Conservative Party in New Zealand is a Christian political front-group.
So why not be brave, honest enough to say so Mr Craig?
