Your newspaper of last week speaks loud and clear the strong support of two highly motivated women in the Cook Islands from the Vaka Puaikura and also the support of many mothers and fathers in relation of the Te Tiare Association and the LGBT community.
Mr Editor, I don’t blame these mothers because they are the ones that carried these kids in their womb for nine months, whether a male or a female.
The Bible says “Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not turn from it” (Proverbs 22:6).
Tinomana Enua Rurutini of Puaikura was the first Ariki to accept Christianity here in Rarotonga on July 25, 1823. He took the oath of allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ. Today we celebrated the 198 years of the arrival of Christianity.
Family and friends, the Cook Islands Constitution was adopted on the Christian principles of the Bible. That’s why we are blessed.
Mr Editor, if the members of the Te Tiare Association and the LGBT Organisation want to be recognised in the community and not to be criminalised in the community, the constitution must be changed by a referendum.
Jesus Christ rule this nation. My advice to the Prime Minister, Cabinet Ministers and all members of Parliament, fail not to see the Righteousness and the holiness of God, so be it.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Temu Ngarima George
