The “New Zealand Christian Network” thinks basically everything wrong with our society is down to filthy, filthy solo parents* and not enough respect for marriage.**
Why, when you see that solo parent families are more likely to be below the poverty line, marriage is obviously the answer and lack of respect for marriage obviously the cause. I mean, lack of childcare options or flexible working hours or even the ability to live well on a single income are just piffling side issues.
Because it’s obvious, my friends.
Marriage is just not respected, and anecdotal evidence shows that some teachers don’t talk about it in sex ed.
And the New Zealand Christian Network thinks teenagers have the right to make informed choices.
After all, if their teachers and the Ministry of Education don’t step in, how will they ever learn that heterosexual Christian weddings exist?
*And I think we all know what gender those parents are generally assumed to be, y/y?
**Love the attempt to pretend that “marriage” has been relegated to the status of a “naughty” word
