It is very encouraging to have MP Tim McIndoe declare himself in favour of the traditional Christian marriage between a man and a woman.
He was quoted in The Waikato Times (July 28) as saying he was not convinced further change was necessary, citing his respect for marriage as a Christian institution.
As a consideration, most marriages start with words to the effect that "marriage is an estate between a man and a woman instituted by God for the purpose of raising a family and promoting faithfulness within the marriage", he said.
It is all very well for Rochelle and Amy Michelle-King saying "marriage was a cornerstone of society and they wanted to be part of it". The trouble is that the "marriage" of two same-sex people is not the cornerstone of society . It is simply transgressing God's laws and pandering to self-interests.
