Why has Brian Tamaki got 2 kitchens, one for himself and one for his wife, whats that all about?? It saddens me to think that this maori man doesen't care that he's taking advantage of low income earners and maori who are already suffering at the hands of John Key and the National Government, He's utterly shameless!!! Brian Tamaki, you're not a man of GOD like you say you are to your followers, you are the devils advocate and I'm extremely confident that what goes around comes back around and sadly for you, where are you gonna go and where are you gonna hide?? BE SURE YOUR SINS WILL FIND YOU OUT!!

If he wants to build a city why not? It wont cost the tax payer money i.e state housing and he helps put a lot of people back on track and it should be a pretty safe place to live for like minded people.

My wife & children were members of this church for several years. The 'Destinyville' plan is another way to control the information that members access. The superstitious idea that an agent of a God, (Tamaki) can take credit for a man conquering addictions is ridiculous, but this rubbish is believed by many Kiwis. I never saw addicts at the door asking for help but heard many stories of rescue. Churchgoers would compete with wails of regret telling tales of woe, of how low they stooped, how Destiny razed them back up. This culture of 'saved from myself' seemed to appeal to many. You too could join Brian's holy roller money train, financial success was beckoning, if only you gave enough, you can be saved, become wealthy, a personal JC takes care of you, the added bonus - with Brians help you can become a 'real man'. I attended many times and was struck by Tamaki's elitism, special 'red carpet' treatment, separate raised dais table, chicken for Brian, cold sausage rolls for the unwashed masses. A superstitious throng of hero worshippers hung on Tamaki's words. I felt like a Jew at a Nazi rally watching the mad, sad & clapping glad worshippers as they gazed in awe at 'Bishop' while he and his wife whipped up a donation frenzy like cheap fair ground hucksters. Brian, there was ONE table at the last super, and no red carpet.

This is some bogus crap. What the hell are wrong with people, that they would be so easily deceived? Did they not hear about Jim Jones? David Koresh? He's just like an abusive lover- get the victim away from everyone who cares about them, and from under the auspices of the law, and brainwash them. It's a much easier process when the abuser doesn't have to compete with the voice of reason.http://blkmanhatesobama.webs.com/http://www.youtube.com/user/blkmanhatesobama01?feature=mhum
