    Peter Cullinane: Time to exercise the conscience vote - 18-Aug-2005
    It is in the interests of political parties and candidates to know what the public wants. So it comes back to us, the public. What do we want? More important, what are our wants based on?
    The focus of this reflection is our own values and attitudes, because what we expect of candidates comes back to what really matters to us.

    Tapu Misa: Economic hardship society's true evil - 22-Jun-2005
    I had occasion recently to dine with a group of what we have come to know these days as fundamentalist Christians. And very nice people they were, too. They were earnest and sincere, their eyes shining with the kind of light that comes from doing good deeds for one's neighbours.

    Bishop fulfils his destiny - 19-Jun-2005
    God looked down on the ordination of Bishop Brian Tamaki in Manukau yesterday afternoon and lo, he was much pleased.

    100 years of worship for church on the edge - 16-May-2005
    An image of a stained glass window hangs on the rear wall of the Reverend Glynn Cardy's office at St Matthew-in-the-City church.
    "It's really three photographs pasted together," the Auckland-based Anglican minister said, as he looked at the abstract swirl of colour and shape. "You don't get the feel of the colour here. It's quite radical."

    Wellington's new archbishop both diplomat and priest - 9-Apr-2005
    Pride may be a sin but I think we can forgive the newly installed Archbishop of Wellington, John Dew, for wanting to show off a little. In any case, it is a thing - albeit a grandly named thing - he is keen on showing off.
    He leads us through his lovely pink cathedral to one of those odd, musty, utilitarian rooms which exist in the back areas of churches and here we behold his cathedral.

    Garnett Milne and Dictatorship? - 18-Mar-2005 would like to point out to Garnett Milne a flaw in his press release in which he states that the “PM fails to stack up to St. Paul’s ideals”. We firstly would like to point out to Mr. Milne that New Zealand is a secular country, and as such has full freedom of religion. We wonder if Mr. Milne is aware of the irony inherent in his position when first he claims:
    “Since Mrs Clark rejects the Word of God which is able to correct the faulty ethical viewpoints now pervasive in fallen human nature, it is inevitable that her ethics will be depraved. Her innate sense of right and wrong will produce ethical conclusion which are consistent with fallen human nature.”

    Usually, the rot begins at the top. - 14-Feb-2005
    Charles is not only very compatible with the gutter morality of our present government who have foisted homosexual marriage and legalised prostitution upon us, just to name two of Labour’s “achievements”, but the prince is also on exactly the same religious wave length as our universalist “tolerateeverythingbarbiblicalChristianity” political comrades.

    Destiny's children on a mission - 12-Feb-2005
    They think New Zealand is going to hell in a handcart. Homosexual behaviour is an abomination. Sex before marriage is a sin. The husband is the leader; the wife is there to support him. Their kids choose abstinence over safe sex.
    They are fundamentalist Christians. The Bible is the word of God, followed to the letter. They believe the time of the Rapture is near - when the trumpet will sound and those who believe in God will be lifted into the clouds, leaving the rest of us to eternal damnation.
