Text:Fundamentalist Destiny Church says it has mounted a 120-man strong kapa haka group as part of its anti-civil unions rally on Parliament on 23 August. The kapa haka team, which recently performed at the All Black v Pacific Island match in Albany, will appear from noon this Saturday at Auckland's Aotea Square and will precede a speech from the anti-gay Destiny Churches pastor, Brian Tamaki. "The group will then move down Queen Street to the Viaduct Basin before finishing at Mission Bay. [We] are expecting over a thousand supporters at the event," says Destiny, which is attempting to whip up anti-civil unions sentiment in the guise of protecting children and the family.
