David Parker opposes same-sex marriage

Labour's David Parker participated in a public "vote chat" at Otago University. Naturally, I took the opportunity to ask him what he thought of same-sex marriage. His response, according to the moderators:

Gay marriage is a peripheral issue can't prioritise everything at once. Civil Unions deliver legal rights required
Or, in English, "shut up and wait your turn".

Nice to know that the man being touted as Labour's future leader won't even stick his neck out to say "I will support it if it comes up". Epsom voters may wish to adjust their votes accordingly.
