Christopher voting ‘no’

Chris in drag at a recent event

Christopher Finlayson is the Attorney-General, as well as the Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations and Arts, Culture, and Heritage. He’s also gay. Being gay and in Parliament is nothing new — both Labour and the Greens have queer faces in Parliament, and it shouldn’t really matter if an MP is gay or not…

However, Christopher is actively voting against legislation which will give marriage equality to same-sex couples. While Christopher is a devout Catholic and claims to be abstinent, we think it’s wrong that he is essentially voting against giving a basic right to other gay men. Unlike some MPs, he’s not elected by any constituency, so he can’t claim that he needs to see what his electorate think — he’s a list MP, a high-ranking list MP, so he’s not as answerable as others are.

How can our Attorney-General — supposedly top dude when it comes to law — not see that the current law discriminates against citizens based purely on their sexuality, itself illegal according to our Human Rights Act?

He’s not the only one voting against Louisa Wall’s legislation, but he is the only out MP who is voting against it. Why don’t you drop him a line and tell him that you think he should be supporting his queer bretheren and voting in support of it.

  5. It must be very easy for him to be abstinent. Perhaps that is his reasoning? I will never marry and so I will ensure that no-one else can either.

    FInd me a quote where he said he was abstinent? Can anybody do that? Didn’t think so, because he never said such a thing so stop spreading your lefty bs.

      There’s no quote in there, just an indirect reference from a journalist spreading mistruths just like yourself.

      That’s right!

        Show me the quote where he says he has sex. That’s right, you can’t. So for the sake of this argument, you are a loser. That’s right.

          Why should he have to tell everyone that he’s had sex? Your argument is a simple nullity.

      Yeah he does look insipid and ill all the time. Chris Finlayson needs to eat some god dam fresh red meat and take some god dam vitamins and go for a god dam walk in the sun and do some actual manual work and use his body instead of sitting in meetings or in god dam church all the time.

      When he’s at the Marae meeting with the Maori don’t they need to bloody feed him some boil up and hang and make him dig some of the hang, build those frail arms up.

        its weird how evolution has affected humanity, in the days when we were less socially constrained and perhaps ‘wild’ if you like and we had to hunt and gather, someone of chris’s stature wouldn’t be at the top of the chain, nowadays people like him a re making all the rules and holding the power. I could kick that guys ass in a fight so badly like all of the politicians except for trevor mallard or tou henearae I reckon those 2 could throw fists.

              in a riot politicians like chris finlayson would get ripped out of their offices and have nothing left not even their clothes, they’d just be standing there going but i have money i have money I’m white I’m white I’m educated, but it wouldn’t mean a thing.
