Stand up and speak out

first_imgChallenge Weekly 6 Sep 2012Opponents to same-sex marriage are being urged to step up, now that the Marriage Amendment Bill has passed its first hurdle, and get their submissions into the select committee.Although the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill passed its first reading last Wednesday, and with the secular media trumpeting that gay-marriage is now a near-certainty, the fight to prevent it becoming law is far from over.Although Church leaders have expressed their disappointment with the result which saw an overwhelming 80 MPs voting for a law change and 40 opposing it, Family First NZ says the debate has just begun.Family First NZ’s director Bob McCoskrie, who has been the target of a sometimes vitriolic campaign by bill supporters, is providing information and resources to help make it easier for people to make submissions to the Select Committee.   Mr McCoskrie said Family First, which had presented the first batch of nearly 50,000 signatures on the Protect Marriage petition to parliament, was still collecting signatures. He hopes to get 100,000 signatures to present to the Committee. See www.protectmarriage.org.nz/sign-the-petitionMr McCoskrie also warns Christians to be aware that there will be chilling consequences for the Church if the bill becomes law.A legal opinion obtained by Family First NZ from Barrister Ian Bassett says marriage celebrants (including church ministers) will be breaching human rights legislation if they refuse to marry a same-sex couple. Even photographers and caterers, as well as adoption agencies and hoteliers, who refuse to supply services would be similarly affected, according to Mr Bassett.Grant Illingworth, QC, said he agreed in principle with the legal opinion provided by Mr Bassett.http://www.challengeweekly.co.nz/component/content/article/39-top-stories/2581-stand-up-and-speak-out-.htmllast_img read more

High school senior gains hope, professional career before graduating

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALPENA, Mich. — A new class at Alpena High School opened the door to a student’s professional career months before graduating. WBKB reporter Elijah Baker spoke with Steven Saddler, who says, the mechatronics program gifted him with a future.Steven knows a lot more about the basics of engineering than most of us out of high school. He has no background in the field, but he’s learning it right as he wraps up his senior year.The technology intrigues him so much, Steven did everything he could to get ahead despite his past failures. “There were times I didn’t know I was going to graduate,” he said. “I’m not the best high school student.”Even though Steven never reached that 4.0 GPA, he got his hands on a field he never thought twice about.“If it wasn’t for this class I wouldn’t have a job.”Steven’s job will pay for his tuition, room and board, books and deposit 200 dollars in his bank account every week of the school year. The high school’s mechatornics program is a combination of mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering. The school started up the program back in the fall. Though Steven has it figured out now, he didn’t know what he was going to do post-graduation.“Growing up you always get told what are you going to do?” said Steven. “Eventually, it gets kind of upsetting for a junior or a senior, and you say, ‘I don’t know, I don’t have a plan.’”You don’t have to know what will capture your attention. When it does, hold onto it.“Ever since then, I’ve known where my life is going to go and i have a future that does not leave me in poverty.”On the path to his future, Steven will start a technical training program at Baker College this fall. He’ll start his first day on the job as early as the middle of June.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious MSP Sergeant saves 2-year-old from getting hit by a dump truckNext Michigan State Police cracks down over Memorial Day weekendlast_img read more
