Like a moron.
Like a fucking moron.
I had assumed that this crazy gay conversion therapy law was aimed at nutter Christians who had brainwashed some adult into some ceremony akin to an exorcism to pray the gay ghosts away which later in life resulted in terrible emotional harm.
I say crazy because we are seriously talking about putting a person in prison for 5 fucking years for a crime that Labour and the Greens can’t even quantify.
So that’s what I thought this gay conversion law was – an insanely punitive woke overreach punishment that was half virtue signal and half identity politics rage concentrated on Christians.
Personally I can’t see any justification whatsoever to waste legislative time on woke virtue signaling when we have 190 000 children in poverty, 4000 kids living in motels, 22512 people waiting on emergency housing, generations locked out of home ownership, the largest spike in inequality since Feudalism and a planet on fire.
But hey that’s just me.
Hilariously advocates of this new law to bash the homophobe Christians with, gasp inducingly complain the threshold is too high!!!!
The Government has unveiled its long-awaited legislation banning gay conversion therapy, but advocates fear the prosecution threshold is “unattainable”.
The law change will make it illegal to carry out conversion practices if they cause serious harm, and those who break the law could face prison sentences of up to five years.
Shaneel Lal was told they could be changed.
“A church leader walked up to me and offered to pray my gay away,” Lal told Newshub.
Paul Stevens had an experience too.
“I was told that there was fundamentally something wrong with me and that through counselling and through talking through the issues as they saw them, that I would be able to change my sexuality.”
The practice, called conversion therapy, is considered junk science and can be incredibly harmful.
So their threshold for activating this law to throw a person in jail FOR FIVE YEARS is not a ceremony or period of brainwashing, it’s just a Priest coming up to you to say they will pray the gay away????
What the fuck???
As an atheist, if I had a dollar for every time some Christian tried to convert me, I’d have more money than NZ on Air vomits down the open throat of The Spin-Off each month! To attempt to take that interaction of a Christian trying to convert me to a hate crime worthy of 5 years in prison is as fucking insane as believing a God magically made the universe in 6 days.
…look, I honestly belittle Christians who believe in a magical flying invisible wizard for their day to day life choices, but they are free to say what they want for crying out loud!
Insanely this all becomes one giant moot point because the Minister of self annihilation tells reporters on Friday this isn’t just about Christians praying the gay ghosts away, oh no, it extends to parents who stop their children from taking puberty blockers??????????
There’s concern parents could be caught out by the Government’s planned gay conversion therapy law.
Under the Bill, they could face jail time if they stop their children from taking puberty blockers.
Fresh from running and hiding over his Free Speech interview trainwreck, the Faff is back and this time he’s ensuring total political alienation by imprisoning parents who won’t give their teens puberty blockers!
What the fuck are you doing Labour???
You can’t see that this is political cyanide?
Criminalizing Christians is one thing, criminalizing parents who stop their teenagers from using puberty blockers by putting them in prison for 5years is another fucking world!
Are you on the hunt for the most politically alienating Woke culture war hot button?
What’s more electorally alienating than criminalizing free speech? Oh I know, let’s throw parents who don’t allow their teens puberty blockers into jail for 5 years!
Isn’t it funny how we on the Left go on and on and on and on about how violent and counter productive prison is?
How it deforms justice and simply creates people more damaged coming out of it than they went in and how only the worst of the worst should go there?
Well, I believe that and I will always champion mercy and prison upgrades, yet I look at my comrades on the woke middle class left and their snarling desire for punitive 3year and 5year vengeance prison sentences when it comes to hate speech and gay conversion therapy and I’m reminded of just how hypocritical and intellectually bankrupt their cult is.
This is a fucking stupid self mutilation on behalf of Labour. This is why they needed Winston.
