Text:Taking a leaf out of the Maxim Institute's book, Brian Tamaki and the Destiny Church have taken to exploiting children in their fight against gay marriage. Angry young boys joined their parents to lead Destiny Church protesters through central Auckland streets on Saturday, reports the Sunday Star-Times. The crowd cheered as warrior boys, aged between six and eight, hit the streets chanting "enough is enough" as part of a 200-strong kapa haka group. When asked what they were marching for, 12-year-old Demi James of Mangere answered, "We're standing up against the bad people, aren't we?" The marchers streamed into the Viaduct Harbour, led by Pastor Brian Tamaki on his Harley-Davidson motorbike, before being bussed to Mission Bay.
