‘God deeply frustrated with Auckland’s gay people’

This is the best response I’ve seen.


God is reportedly feeling “extraordinarily” frustrated that the gay people of Auckland – estimated to be the large bulk of New Zealand’s gays – are located nowhere near a fault line that could cause them sufficient devastation.

God, who punished Christchurch’s gays in 2010 and 2011, Seddon’s gays in 2013, and Kaikoura and Wellington’s gays earlier this week…

Go read it all: God deeply frustrated Auckland’s gay people live nowhere near a fault line

And here a couple of people explain how Tamaki doesn’t understand Leviticus: Porkies, Brian, Porkies!

    It’s odd that He hasn’t struck the houses of only gay people, then.

    Cults often have a facade of something respectable but underneath are full of foolishness. Tamaki is a twit who hasn’t got a clue about what the bible says about anything. The bible warns people to watch out for charlatans like this.

      Probably true. I was watching a Seventh Day Adventist pastor on Firstlight a few months back. The flocker was telling his flockees there are over 600 commandments in the Bible so it could be one of those I suppose. but if not there’s still a very large pool of warnings and wisdoms to pick from.

        Yes, there are many warnings against false prophets.

        If Brian Tamaki knew about this latest lot, how selfish of him not to warn the people in the affected areas before it happened. Or was it chance, or him making the facts fit the theory, so to speak ? He said that something would happen-aha ! it did ! HE knew that it was going to be a major earthquake-afterwards.

          I care so much about the bish’s mission I’m going to courier him a dozen rats’ arses from the sizeable stock I still have left from all the things I didn’t give a rat’s arse for over the past couple of years.

            So you DO give a rat’s arse, then ?

            Poor ratties.

            It was quite a mousy winter for some reason; I unrolled a towel from the top shelf and found a mouse snugly ensconsed in it. I don’t know who was more surprised as Mouse and I gazed at each other before he leaped down and ran away. If his genes could be isolated, they would make a super-athlete, as I also saw him prancing along the windowsill, the showoff.

    Another piece of satirical brilliance from ‘The Civilian’ XD

    But to give ‘Bishop Brian’ his dues, he has never once deviated from his views on Gays, Murderers, and Sinners. He has never changed his rhetoric or stance on the matter.

    It is in fact the rest of the world that has changed……some would say for the worse

    • And many would say that enlightened world views on sexuality have been for the better.

      Some Muslim countries are justifiably strongly criticised for retaining repressive views on sexuality. Tamaki is hardly any better. Christ as depicted would weep at Tamaki’s intolerance and bigotry, as well as his getting rich off poor people. His temple could be regarded as a den of thieves with hollow, manipulative prayer.

        The problem here is your criticisms must be weighed against the help many have received from Destiny Church. As I stated yesterday, Tamaki has probably helped more folk than anyone else on this site. And that is where the genius of Bishop Tamaki lies.

    I gather the bish missed this when he leafed through his bible.

      Somebody commented on a video linked to this rum yesterday I think that the thing is the bish can afford to buy a needle any size he likes and as many camels of any size he likes. He’s just one of those good ole prosperity preachers who tell their flock God wants everybody to be rich but that you need to give before God rewards you, I expect. Some of those American PPs are multi-millionaires. My favourite is Benny Hinn. I don’t think he even reads the Bible, he just tells the faithful that Chapter so and so says blah, and then just makes shit up. You can ring him up or send specific amounts of money from time to time when God says he needs, say, 500 people to give $250 and another 500 people to send $100. Also you can buy special prayer shawls that he blesses. These things all bring prosperity, but only if you give to his Ministry, presumably so he can personally drop it off at the Bank Of God.

          The phantom downticker, of course.

          He’s (BT) like the old joke about the collections.

          A rabbi, a priest and (Brian Tamaki) were talking about how they divided the collection money between themselves and God.
          .
          The rabbi said that he drew a line on the floor and tossed the collection money into the air. What fell on one side was God’s and what fell on the other was his.

          The priest said that he did something similar with a circle-what went outside it was God’s and what went inside was his.

          Brian Tamaki said ‘ I just throw all the collection money into the air, and what God wants, He keeps.’

          Benny Hinn claims to have healed himself of a severe cold by touching the television when one of his shows was on.

              I heard a recording of the interview where he said it, or I wouldn’t have believed it was true 😀

              It’s always a giveaway when bogus healers do the one leg shorter than the other which miraculously grows a bit to be the same length as the other one. It’s so easy to make one leg look shorter than the other and then ‘grow’ that even I can do this. Anyone could, I suspect.

              There was one whose assistant/s would ask people to write down their name and what was wrong with them ‘for extra prayer’ as they came in…then the faith healer who hadn’t seen these-couldn’t possiblyhave seen them-would say ‘I hear the name Joe…Joe Brown…Joe has bad arthritis in his knees….’

              He had a little earpiece and was being fed these things. Even when he was exposed and went inside, he built up a following again when he came out.

              He collected about $10,000,000 for an orphanage (in Mexico, I think) Years later, all that had been built where the orphanage was supposed to go was a small sign. But Benny Hinn had a huge new house with a garage for something like 10 cars. He is a fraudster. As all these people have to donate is 10%, they tend to do this-they can afford to !

      Let me pose an alternative hypothesis – our country lies on a seismically active part of the world’s crust with a large number of identified active fault lines and Brian Tamaki is an ill-informed bigoted ignorant ass who spews forth fear and loathing and blame while pillaging the pockets of the gullible for his own benefit.

              If it was meant for the Destinys, why was it being covertly filmed ? That seems to be a contradiction in terms-it was either openly filmed for them to see or covertly for other people. It didn’t look like a covert film to me.

            • I agree Miss Kitty. Very good sound quality for a covert film …

              I don’t know how the media got it, does anyone?

              I can imagine a faithful disciple wanting everyone to know that Bishop Tamaki enunciated the reasons for natural disasters a day or two before a big one happened …?

      • …. a force that animates the universe? A creator, perhaps? Or maybe we created God?

        An argument exists that all reality is a kind of ‘projection’ of human consciousness.

        “One of the key principles of quantum physics is that our thoughts determine reality. Early in the 1900’s they proved this beyond a shadow of a doubt with an experiment called the double slit experiment. They found that the determining factor of the behavior of energy (‘particles’) at the quantum level is the awareness of the observer.”

Where the treasure is, there the heart is. I’d rather be me than either of them-they can keep their money Yes, I’d like to be better off than I am and it would be foolish to pretend otherwise. But I don’t envy him his stable of Harleys or her her expensive jewellery. I have two good diamond rings and I am quite happy with those. How many rings can anyone wear, forsooth ? How many cars and Harleys does someone need ?

              Well, first I’d tidy up my place, bit of plumbing work upstairs, lower the cistern downstairs, it’s too high for kiddies reach the flush button, some landscaping, stabilise the stream bank, repaving, replace the trellises with a wall, new front gate and fence, new automatic garage door, the current one’s rusting and I think sectional doors are better than tilt-a-doors and don’t damage the hatch when some idiot hits the open or close button when the hatch door is up. New screen doors, front and back. Re- site the shed. Get the place repainted, it’s a scaffolding job, a bit beyond me these days, & quite expensive.

              Then sell up and move somewhere else in Welly, not entirely sure where yet, but I’ll want a reputable geologist and engineer’s report obviously before I fork out for a new mansion. Maybe 2 mill for that.

              Then help out family. Most of them are doing ok but one bro is on the bones of his arse because of mental illness. I’d pay for him to move to a better home, and put 1 mill in a managed investment vehicle for him. I’d like to give 1 mill to Margaret Stewart House. Maybe 4 mill invested through a reputable financial adviser, and the balance to as yet unspecified good works. The will should take care of the others when I cark it.

              But my question for you is, do you have the 50 mill?

              It’s not crap, it’s true-I am alone with nobody to leave it to, I don’t need it. I don’t need a huge house-why would I want one ? I’d like a better one, but probably another cottage but with a bigger sittingroom and bathroom (I love big bathrooms). I’d like to do a lot more travel, but there’s a limit to how much of that one can do .

              $40,000,000 could bring in an income of $2,000,000 a year and I couldn’t spend that. $4,000,000 would provide a very nice lifestyle, good enough for anyone.

I can admire things without coveting them and I like the things that I have. I couldn’t begin to spend the income from $44,000,000 except by loading myself with expensive possessions that I neither need nor want.

  9. God speaking here. Hello people, I am not unhappy with the lesbian, gay etc community in Auckland, because at least they provide a safe place for those gay people resident in Islamic countries. I am however concerned about the lack of meaningful support for our people subject to the consequences of war and natural disasters at present. I also am disturbed by the number of people who are not supporting their neighbours in need. Be very careful people lest I visit you with the wrath that I have been able to demonstrate in times now past. Be ware of the flood, fire and ice.
