    Absolute Abstinence Program Producing Results - 26-May-2005
    Destiny New Zealand leader Richard Lewis says the Absolute Abstinence program pioneered by the Auckland Youth Development Trust is proving that a policy of abstinence as the entry point to sex education does work.
    "After its first six months the program has produced a 96 percent success rate amongst 203 young people who have made a pledge of abstinence from sex before marriage. This is a great result considering the epidemic of STD's and unwanted pregnancies prevalent among New Zealand youth", says Lewis.

    Quite some queerness in Murray McCully' - 14-Feb-2005
    Leaving aside all the crap about the government "officially endorsing" homosexuality (rather less than it "officially endorses" heterosexuality, one would think), have you seen the ad he's talking about as if it contains wall-to-wall buggery? From memory, there's a second or two in which two young men kiss once and smile at each other. This, according to McCully, is a "graphic depiction" of a "sexual encounter". If it wasn't such a wholly terrifying subject for conjecture, I'd be tempted to conclude that McCully must be very dull in the sack.

    Email to Murray McCully - 11-Feb-2005
