The politics of contradiction is what it can be called when New Zealand recently had a political election in which the winners included one transvestite and several openly homosexual contenders. At the same time the biggest TV station ran a poll to select the most popular book of the millennium which showed “The Guinness Book of Records” was number 5, “Gone with the Wind” was number 3, and “The Bible” was number 1. (Channel 1 New Zealand 11/99). (Ref. politics, Bible, New Zealand)
