    Smacking Law Leads to Miscarriage of Justice

    By admin | October 19, 2010

    MEDIA RELEASE

    19 October 2010

    Smacking Law Leads to Miscarriage of Justice

    Family First NZ is welcoming the acknowledgement by the Crown of a miscarriage of justice towards Christchurch parent James Mason who was prosecuted by police for pulling the ear of his 3 year old when trying to prevent him from injuring himself as his younger brother had just done.

    “Family First always said that if the conviction was for an ear pull rather than the claimed punch in the face, it was inappropriate. The acknowledgement by the Crown Solicitor in the Supreme Court today shows that the application of discretion and the lumping together of substantially different actions was flawed,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.

    “Parenting in New Zealand has been put on trial. The politicians have dealt a heavy legislative blow to parents, and parents are feeling disempowered, disrespected, and demonised as child abusers.”

    “As well as that, the police are caught in the middle trying to balance the zero tolerance approach to family violence against the so-called discretion offered under the anti-smacking law.”

    “It is not surprising that research by the Families Commission found that only a third of parents believe that the government sees their role as important.”

    Family First NZ is challenging Prime Minister John Key to amend the law that he has labeled a dog’s breakfast, and introduce the amendment that he lobbied for before he became Prime Minister which decriminalizes light smacking for the purpose of correction.

    “NZ’ers have no confidence in this law and are confused by it,” says Mr McCoskrie. “Good parents taking their kids for a bike ride and trying to keep them safe deserve the support of the state – not criminalisation.”

      A Prayer From Jesus

      It’s finally come down to this, I knew it would eventually. Unfortunately for YOU, who has missed the mark, which means you are going to hell. Your portion will be in the lake of fire. Don’t be offended at me, it’s your preacher, or that radio personality, the person that told you that you are saved, blame them. Then again when your screaming in the pit it really doesn’t matter whose at fault, does it. For it is your responsibility to know the way of salvation.

      Why? You ask. Simply, you trusted man to lead you to Christ. Not once have you asked Jesus if you are saved. If you did, you never waited for an answer. There is only one that we should ask on how to be saved, that is Christ Jesus.

      Jesus has made it easy for you to know where you will stand on the last day. Pray this Prayer, and Jesus will answer all who diligently seeks Him.

      These are the last days, This is your last chance.
      Pray the Prayer, and KNOW!

      – A PRAYER FROM JESUS –

      This prayer is from Jesus that we may hear from Him, that He may speak to our hearts. It only consist of three simple steps.

      1) We need to read one scripture. This will focus us in the word that brings everlasting life.

      2) Since this prayer is from Jesus we need to direct our prayer to Him personally. Too often Christian focuses they’re prayer’s to G_D the father. Scripture proclaims that Jesus should be the focus of our prayer.

      3) The simplest part of this Prayer is to ask Jesus one question. Please, all that is required for this question is that it should be simple. Let Jesus Himself finish the question when He gives you that understanding through this prayer.

      The PRAYER

      The scripture that is the focus of this prayer is “ACTS 2:38”. It’s not necessary to do any study into this scripture. Jesus Himself will give you the understanding that will resonate in your heart. Just read Acts 2:38, keep it in your heart and take this one scripture to prayer

      The most important part of this prayer is that we need to direct our prayer directly to Jesus. If you normally would say Father in your prayer, change your focus from the Father to Christ Jesus, by lifting Jesus name up every time you would normally use Father in your prayer.

      Maybe the hardest part of this prayer is the question that we need to ask Jesus. For men are always trying to understand the question instead of listening to the answer. The simplest question is all that is required.

      Simply ask Jesus ‘WHY’

      For those who are obedient
