I would be interested in the legislative justification for not terming the tithing a form of protection racket (albeit one aimed at the soul rather than anything earthly). Also, does his predliction for leather bikerwear make him some sort of fetish artist wannabe?

At least Rev Tamaki has actually seen peoples lives changed for the better...... IE Men that were violent to their wives and families changing......... if that's crazy I'd rather follow him than you

Since he feels so strongly about gays, he may be one himself. Hmmmmm...He doth protest too much, perhaps??

Surprised to see a goddess listed amongst the gods! Though I guess it would be too gay of him to talking about going up against a *god* of sexual perversion šŸ™ƒ probably too much room for his own homoeroticism to be seen! P

PS - sorry for commenting on old posts šŸ¤£ I am getting caught up on some stuff posted before I subscribed. These articles covering mega churches are wild. Thanks for the work!!!

This was a brilliant site, unfortunately no longer available. Someone who knows how to find the online stuff that never disappears might do a good deed and bring it back.

Kia ora David. I am curious to see your original student documentary. Sounds like it was made around the same time as the march in 2004? Would you consider releasing it with an update of the ongoing nonsense? Just an idea. Cheers, love your mahi! Mel Tahata
