The Herald reports:

Destiny Church has had an application to open a charter school declined by the Ministry of Education.

Church spokesman Richard Lewis said they were told on Tuesday evening the application to turn their existing private school into a charter school for years 1-13 had been turned down.

Good. I have no problem with religious groups sponsoring charter schools, and in fact many excellent schools in New Zealand have a religious element to them.

But Destiny Church is too cult like for me. There is a difference between a broad based religion and a cult. Destiny isn’t absolutely a cult, but it has cult-like tendencies.
