Civil Union critic issues a new challenge to her opponentsBy Alan Tristram
Deb Burton, of Waikanae, who used the Speakers’ Corner platform last Saturday to oppose gay marriage, has answered critics who’ve attacked her views in the ‘Comments’ section.
For some reason,her earlier replies failed to ‘stick’ in the Comments column (no interference editorially!), so we’ve decided to give prominence to her arguments in this piece.
“Who is the bigot?’By Deb Burton
Apparently a gremlin has spirited away all the comments I’ve made to you guys.
So who’s not listening, who is the bigot?
Defined as one blindly devoted to a belief… I’ve gone back and forth on the issue over the years – partly in response to some of the myths I’ve mentioned…
In fact the “10% are homosexuals” has only just exploded in my mind!! If you aren’t open minded, you are a bigot…
I’ve had to deal with homosexual issues in my family, and love is my first and formost response…
Alan Tristram is a good unbiased journalist in that he allowed me to appear in his paper – are you saying he should only print his own, or your opinions? That is bigotry I think!.
As for Jesus – he didn’t mention every crime in the world in the Gospels, that doesn’t mean drug dealing etc etc isn’t an evil thing… The argument isn’t sound.
Now I have to go to a work meeting (unpaid) I’ve set up to work out some cool ways of helping people feel at home in an institution… Looking forward to good discussions with those of you who who are open minded… Deb
