Who’s to judge?

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -


I sub­mit that the pol­icy re­gard­ing head­stones con­tinue to al­low for the Mon­grel Mob’s right to dis­play their in­signia.

The ceme­tery be­longs to the cit­i­zens of Porirua who are mul­ti­lin­gual, mul­ti­cul­tural, plu­ral­is­tic in their be­liefs. No one group or in­di­vid­ual has the right to de­ter­mine what will be the in­scrip­tion on a spe­cific head­stone.

The in­scrip­tion re­lates to the per­sonal be­liefs and as­so­ci­a­tion(s) of the de­ceased and as such is sa­cred to that per­son.

REV DON BOR­RIE, Ti­tahi Bay.
