Destiny Church leader Brian Tamaki posted a long rant to his Facebook page warning New Zealanders about the dangers of Islam…in a country that is still beating itself up with guilt over one attack on a mosque that killed 51.
Daily Mail ‘We can not accept the proliferation of Islam in our country and think just because you’re tolerant, accepting and inclusive that we won’t end up like Great Britain, South East Asia, and most of Europe with violence, loss of the host country’s identity, their values and culture destroyed, and Sharia Law enacted,’ he wrote.
‘The outright destruction of Western Civilization and the removal of what has been the bedrock of that civil society… Christianity (all be it many have rejected it) is well into its advanced stages.’
Some commenters were critical of Mr Tamaki’s comments, saying they were ‘rot and nonsense’.
Mr Tamaki criticised the Islamic community in the wake of the Christchurch attack where 51 people were killed during Friday prayers on March 15. He said broadcasting the Islamic call to prayer across swathes of the country the following Friday was a step towards New Zealand becoming a Muslim country.
Mr Tamaki said New Zealanders were being left behind due to Muslim favouritism by the government. ‘Yet [former prime minister] Helen Clark’s Government and [Prime Minister] Jacinda Ardern have shelled out millions to the Muslims in recent times.’
He finished his rant by saying he faces a double standard in comparison to Islam. ‘Why do the New Zealand government and media refrain from asking questions of the Muslim community, that they have no problem asking of me?’ he wrote.
