New Zealand: 72,000 Sign Anti-Marriage Equality Petition

Written by scott on January 22nd, 2013

New Zealand’s anti-gay marriage lobby group has gathered 72,000 signatures opposing a bill that will legalize same-sex marriage.

Family First said they would present the petition to a parliamentary select committee currently receiving submissions about plans to legalize gay marriage in New Zealand.

‘This is an incredible response considering it’s not part of a formal Referendum, and it certainly shows the level of public opposition to the bill,’ said Bob McCoskrie, national director of Family First.
