Born to rule — a movement on the skids


I'm still in New Zealand talking about movements. Tomorrow we're in Palmerston North. Last stop Christchurch.

While I was here this story broke about the Destiny movement led by Bishop Brian Tamaki. It tells of the closure of its Brisbane congregation after the pastor and 90 people walked out.

They were upset about increasing demands for money by Bishop Tamaki in New Zealand. Tamaki is known within the movement as "the king". As his number plate declares (above), he was born to rule.
