New Zealand MPs speech on same-sex marriage "Be ye not afraid"

This is a speech given by Maurice Williamson, an MP from New Zealand, given last April I believe, in support of their same-sex marriage bill, which passed and will take effect August 19. I saw the video clip a while back and wanted to post it, but forgot. And in light of the hundreds of hateful comments I saw yesterday on an article on all the anti-gay legislation recently passed in Russia (lots of comments saying things like, the Ruskies are doing something right), I thought this was timely. Here's Mr. Williamson's wonderful, very funny, and very true speech.
