Second group joins anti-Destiny protest

Wed 18 Aug 2004 In: New Zealand Daily News

A second group has joined the Rally for Human Rights in standing up to Brian Tamaki's Enough is Enough hate march to Parliament on 23 August. 'Against Conservative Fundamentalism' will march to Parliament from Te Aro Park at 11am, and is welcoming supporters from all walks of life. "I don't want to see the church and state amalgamated again, witch hunts and heretic burnings are so last century. I think Pastor Brian is really just in it for his reward on earth, you know 'bling bling'. His attempts to appeal to the lowest fears in people shows this, and that includes their sexuality," says spokesperson the Rev Puss Puss Sherbourne. "We realize the playing field isn't level when we, a grassroots non-profit lobby are playing against a millionaire CEO of a corporate mega TV church like Destiny." Victoria University's UniQ group is organising the Rally for Human Rights, to be held in Parliament grounds at 11:30am. UniQ co-president Maddy Drew says they do not want a confrontation with the Destiny supporters. "They are just as entitled to their view as we are to ours," she said.
