So we have a charismatic church planning to build a university, and more.

This will seem strange to my American cousins, that we have so much controversy about a religious group planning to build a community.

Destiny Church new town

NZ has a national anthem that beseeches God, and on Easter Friday and Christmas Day our urban areas are ghost towns due to religious admonitions, yet we find it newsworthy that a religious sect is about to build a campus.

Yet, we vilify the US for it's supposedly evangelical leanings, when in fact the US has an anthem that never mentions God and where Christmas Day is an excuse for football games and other celebrations of capitalism.
