first_imgSunday Star Times 27 Jan 2013A teenager opposed to gay marriage has accused select committee members of behaving in a hostile and “menacing” way to submitters who are against a proposed law change for same-sex couples.Leader of conservative lobby group Family First Bob McCoskrie says the girl was treated apallingly by MPs when she told them during her oral submission that to allow homosexuals to marry would undermine the sanctity of marriage, with one calling her “homophobic” and another getting up for refreshments in the middle of her speech.In a press release sent to the Sunday Star-Times, McCoskrie said 18-year-old Grace Carroll was left humiliated, disappointed and frustrated by the experience – and she’s not the only person to have complained.However, the committee members say all submitters were treated with respect – even if they did roll their eyes at the girl when she began to quote civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr – and that McCoskrie was simply agitating because public support has swung away from him.“I think McCroskrie is mischief-making,” said Green MP Kevin Hague. “His motivation is to do whatever he can to try and stop the bill. So I don’t think anyone will be surprised that he is now attempting to undermine [the] select committee process.”Labour MP Louisa Wall’s Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill is before the select committee, which will report to Parliament on February 28. If passed, it could see gay marriage legal by May next year.The committee has received more than 20,000 submissions on the bill and has held numerous hearings since December.http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/8228307/Committee-menacing-to-anti-gay-teenagerlast_img read more

Ron DeSantis made an announcement that he will be sending the National Guard to set up a mass COVID-19 testing site in Palm Beach County.“If you look at the numbers in the state of Florida, Dade and Broward far and away, the top two counties for infections. Palm Beach is kind of a distant third,” DeSantis said. “But if you look at Palm Beach’s numbers, they have not had nearly the amount of testing that Dade and Broward have had.”According to the Florida Department of Health, 5,845 people have been tested in Broward County, 5,310 have been tested in Miami-Dade County, and 1,488 have been tested in Palm Beach County. Palm Beach County has 194 confirmed cases of COVID-19, 763 in Miami-Dade County and 596 in Broward County.At the moment it is unclear where the location for mass testing in Palm Beach County will take or when it will began.WATCH NEWS CONFERENCE:last_img read more
