A NZ Herald columnist, Tapu Misa, just "came out" as a Christian convert in her column for today. Amazing! When I used to read the Herald more, she vocally expressed disdain for "religion" (unsurprising, that seems to be shared by most New Zealanders). You never know what God is going to pull off.
The Herald's opinion page will be a bit more interesting now; if I recall correctly she's somewhat left wing, and will therefore be an interesting counterpoint to Garth George, who seems almost the stereotypical crusty right-wing conservative Christian.
