blessed are the religious discriminators
Our leaders don't really like religion. Expecially Christianity. They want to ban prayer in schools, the Parliament prayer is a formality before it is imediately disregarded, the PM doesn't like to say grace at meals. All because we are a secular country.
Ah, but if religion is framed into Maori spirituality it works wonders. No problem paying $4400 for koha, travel costs, and food to bless roading projects such as the start of Auckland's State Highway 20 extension at Mt Roskill.
Can't wait for a motor vehicle fatality on these routes. Then we`ll see if the $4000 is well spent.
