Stop Singing God Defend NZ

Media Statement By Destiny Church

TVNZ’s intention to axe Destiny Television as part of the infomercial, evangalical ‘clean up’ on TV One and Two “Is arrogant and ill-advised” said Pastor Brian Tamaki of Destiny Television.

He went on to say that “It would appear that there is a huge misunderstanding about what ‘Informative Television’is.

For a start Destiny Television should never have been ‘dumped’ in with informercials and Telemarketers and to say that it is inconsistent with the ‘Spirit’ of the Charter is absolute rubbish. Destiny Television is the only New Zealand made, self-funded, non profit programme that actually addresses the issues of drug, alcohol, child and sex abuse, along with teen suicide, marriage, anger, attitudinal development and the fatherless generation. We have always given positive, practical and well tested answers and solutions to these re occurring problems in our nation”. Said Brian Tamaki

He also said “It concerns me to see the constant diet of sexual perversion, violence and dysfunction constantly spewed into our lounges by our own State Owned Television. This is fuelling the very ‘Fire’ that government and society bewail the next moment on the same television. There is an obvious ‘discrimination’ in the decision makers in television.

We have had huge feed back in the 12 months of our programme, thousands been inspired by the answers and hope they have been given. Imagine the response if TVNZ gave us a decent time.

It saddens me to see ‘main’ stream NZ have this rejection syndrome to anything right and functional. The reactions I get to words like Christian, Jesus and Church is frightening.

I take issue with a government and nation that is sliding into the mud of sexual perversion arrogance and permissiveness.

How can God defend New Zealand when His people reject Him. We may have to change the anthem”.
