“Today for at least a moment New Zealand will become an Islamic nation,”-Bishop Brian Tamaki
Thousands gather in Christchurch for Friday prayers to mark one week since a mass shooting at two mosques killed 50 people
People across NZ observed the Muslim call to prayer as the nation reflected on the moment one week ago when 50 people were slaughtered at two mosques
New Zealanders show their support for the devastated Muslim community by wearing headscarves and holding nationwide prayers
Not everyone lost his marbles:
Destiny Church’s Brian Tamaki has come under fire for rejecting the Muslim call to prayer. He is (rightly) accusing Jacinda Ardern of abusing her Prime Ministerial power and turning NZ into a “Muslim nation”.
Bishop Brian Tamaki says he “strongly denounces” the Islamic Call to Prayer ahead of the two minutes of silence being held for the victims of the Christchurch terror attacks today.
“This is Offensive to all True Christians in Aotearoa … Our National Identity is at stake,” he posted on Twitter.
“PM Jacinda Ardern has abused her Prime Ministerial decree in allowing ‘Allah as the only true God to be sounded in Muslim prayer across the airwaves in our nation tomorrow.”
“Today for at least a moment New Zealand will become an Islamic nation,” Mr Tamaki, who heads Destiny Church, says.
