Lucia Interesting reaction by Gay NZ writer to Family First losing charity status

Craig Young is very happy that Family First are losing their charity status. So happy in fact, that on his Face Book page, he's linked to an MSM NZ article on that very subject and added in a picture of a witch being burned alive to presumably symbolise Family First.

I'm not going to try and psychoanalyse that visual analogy, however it does indicate that Family First represents some sort of incredible evil that must be destroyed or an innocent victim of deranged religious fanatics who will stop at nothing to ensure some sort of burning occurs. I'm guessing the former, personally, but you never know.

Nah - Facebook grabs whatever photos in can from urls users share. That photo is in the source of the news page, as it's part of the little gallery on the top right.

I did have a look and I couldn't see it, but I'll take your word for it.

FaceBook is quite annoying with always grabbing pictures, even when you don't want it to, because there's nothing that quite works.

Lucia, I think Family First was getting political in the end with the pledge to vote out MPs who supported gay marriage. I wonder if this influenced their decision.

Or was it just silencing opposition?

Hi Terry,

Lots of groups get very political, and were Family First exactly the same way as they are but for same-sex marriage and against those MPs that voted against same-sex marriage, then I doubt they'd be looking at a de-registration right now.

So I think this is most likely an attempt to take out the opposition by causing financial pain as a starting point.

We're dealing with people who, if they don't like the rules, they change them.

This just ratchets up the game a few notches!
