Trawling through the Dark Side, look who popped up? 'Prominent' msm journo warns of a(nother) Methodist schism over elevation of lesbian Minister to church leadership. At least according to his interview transcript, so it MUST be true! Te Taha Maori ( the tangata whenua arm of the church - who knew they had one?) could not be reached for an interview. Yeah, so what's the problem? What did TTM really say, John? C'mon, you remember. Quote away, John, we trust ya.
Btw, re gay ministers: Ick.
Damage control... Battling to rehabilitate the msm's shattered credibility, the SST extols HoS editor's Herculean efforts to bleach the paper's JM stain. A suspicious Mr Currie went to John's parent's house & hired private eyes to investigate Mr Manukia (a Methodist, btw) when a routine cop-trashing assignment began to derail. Contractual obligations prevent JM from yacking to the SST. Umm, HELLO? Have we not learned anything from the entire episode? Interviews aren't strictly necessary. Ask John.
Like attracts like... Turns out our favourite Tongan fabulist was real chummy with Tim Murphy while working for the Dark Side. Tim is now the Herald's editor. I bet he taught John everything he knows :-)
