Just looking at Gladstone, Australia too and I noticed that there are a lot of Lutheran churches on Australia. Is that a predominant religion there?

The port and beaches all look so clean and neat ( March so it's what season?) I don't see any tourists covered with oil, lying on the sand though.

My family were part of the group who brought the Lutheran Church into Australia, and then into NZ.

I'm descended from a long line of preachers and Church Builders.....:punk:rolleyes:


Its how the family name made its way out of Austria and into NZ. I see crap named after my relatives in every area I go to that has a Lutheran community, Most recently saw a couple roads named after family members in Nelson.

Idiots bred with inferior genetic specimens, NZ settlers from Scotland, it went downhill quickly.

Personally I see the rejection of the creator as described by the Christian faith to be a step forward in evolution.

None of the fairy tales stand up to scrutiny.

Around Upper Moutere?

I used to live 4km from a Lutheran Church, St Paul's I think it was, all kinds of fun road names around there.

In that general area, we were actually on the Main road heading towards an aquarium, I saw a stone marker and a street name both bearing Grandmothers maiden name, they had both been moved for road works.

I wouldn't be surprised if her relatives still make up a good portion of the congregation, and she says there was statues erected and all sorts of other stuff.

They figured they had a lot to be proud of I suppose, Pity that side of the family are now well known for being notorious criminals.:groan:
