Concern that the 2004 civil unions legislation giving official recognition to same-sex relationships undermined traditional marriage led the Destiny Church to march on Parliament. The fundamentalist church introduced a new element to street marches: T-shirts with slogans. As well as getting their message across to the public, the T-shirts helped to provide marchers with a common sense of identity and purpose.
