Support for traditional marriage is growing in the notoriously liberal New Zealand, according to the pro-family group Family First NZ and the "Protect Marriage" campaign, WORLD News Service reports. A Herald on Sunday poll said support for same-sex "marriage" had fallen from a previous high of 63 percent last May to just 53 percent now. "These results are energizing our campaign to maintain the definition of marriage as is," said Bob McCoskrie, national director of Family First NZ. "We always knew that once we got past the slogan of 'marriage equality' and debated the real impact of redefining marriage, that New Zealanders would understand that there is no need for a 'same-sex marriage' bill."
