Anglican Church funds Maori Party Election Campaign!
Let’s say you were one of Saturday Night’s lucky Lotto ‘Power Ball’ winners & waking-up a multi-millionaire, you decided to share your good fortune with the less well-off in society by donating a small portion of your winnings away to a noble cause. Say $10,000.
Who would your be recipient(s)? Cancer Research may be? The City Mission is always a standard? You can’t go too wrong with The Salvation Army? Let's not forget about the neglected animals, and toss the S.P.C.A some of the loot.
But what say we give it all to The Maori Party?
“The bloody Maori Party!” I hear you squeal, they’re a political party - why do they deserve a sizeable charitable donation?
The only people who can fully answer this question are The Bishops of The Anglican Church of New Zealand, who were exposed by recent declaration changes to The Electoral System, as one of The Maori Party's largest single backers.
In black & white & so you can get your head around this: Electoral Commission records show The Anglican Church of New Zealand donated $10,000 to The New Zealand Maori Parties 2005 Election Campaign.
Thanks to Jonathan Milne at The New Zealand Herald newspaper, this back-room funding has been revealed, so now both the public and bemused & no doubt angry Anglican church-goers, can judge this 'donation' in the true light of day.
The charade that mainstream churches in New Zealand are apolitical has been blown wide open.
Here we have a church with the audacity to front a campaign to prise-away Kiwi’s hard earned taxes using guilt-tactics, showing us all 'in full colour' where their own charitable sympathies sit – politics not welfare!
The Anglican Churches politically-correct view on what it believes philanthropy is in New Zealand, has been exposed to the publics justified scorn & derision.
Caught with their pants-down at their ankles and robes wide open, The Church of England (New Zealand Inc)pretences of neutrality are now in tatters.
