Take me down to the Destiny City, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty

The leader of Destiny Church says plans are underway to create a self-contained "Destiny City" for its followers in the middle of South Auckland.

Plans for the city include a 5000-seat church, maraes, medical centres and schools - eliminating the need for residents to ever leave.

"Every child of every member of this church will never go to a state school again," Brian Tamaki said.

At the church's 10th anniversary celebrations, he urged the church's 7000-plus members to sell their homes and move to his city "for the purpose of God".

Which God? Not one I've heard of, anyway.

In 2003 Tamaki told his followers: "I predict in the next five years, by the time we hit our 10th anniversary - and I don't say this lightly - that we will be ruling the nation."
