Just a week ago, John Banks was known to me only as New Zealand’s Creationism-believing Associate Education Minister.
But there’s reason to applaud him this week. There’s a marriage equality bill going through the NZ Parliament and Banks has voiced his enthusiastic support for it!
When asked why he was supporting the bill, he said “because I am”.
YEAH!!!… I mean, ok, he’s not all that excited for it, it seems, but that’s hardly a problem. He’s come around to the right side in an unbelievable showing of cognitive dissonance. Good for him!
