SALLY McMANUS AND RULE OF LAW: is the ACTU, or anybody, exempt?

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Ethics, God, Justice

New ACTU secretary, Sally McManus, says, “I believe in the rule of law.… But when it’s unjust I don’t think there’s a problem with breaking it.”
OK, so who decides whether it’s just?
Apparently not the voting public or their elected law-makers.
Perhaps Sally herself wants to be the decider. She’ll need assistants, skilled in standover tactics, to make it happen.
However unsatisfactory democracy is at times, it’s never as unsatisfactory as that.
In my youth, I was a doctor.
I made it clear that if any patient requested a referral for an abortion, I could not/would not supply it.
Under Victorian law, that’s a punishable offence. As it happens, I was never arrested.
Anyway, to justifiably break a law, one must be sure it relates to an absolute, utterly black-and-white moral issue.
You can’t think in terms of absolutes unless you believe in THE absolute — namely God.

“SAME-SEX MARRIAGE”, WHAT ABOUT IT? is it a serious debate or is it a leg-pull?

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Celebrities, Common Sense, Contemplation, Family, Lifestyle, Truth

The proposed law to legalise “same-sex marriage” is dishonestly worded.
Even its title, “Marriage Amendment (Same-Sex Marriage) Bill”, is a deception.
The term “Same-Sex”, in this context, is meaningless – intentionally so.
“Sex” is something defined in terms of anatomical structures – chromosomes within body cells, genital organs, breasts, whiskers etc. – definable things.
“Gender” is more about how you feel and identify (at least for the moment) — which is un-definable.
Gender-talk is complicated by endless arbitrary variations and name-confusions.
A while back, Facebook was listing up to 58 “gender” identities for customers to choose between.
If this bill ever passes, pressure will immediately be applied to expand it to include transgender-identifiers.
Realistically it won’t be “Same-Sex Marriage” it will be “Same-Sex-And/Or-Today’s-Choice-Of-Gender-Label Marriage”.
The whole project is a plot against personal responsibility and an insult to everybody’s intelligence.

HOW TO BE A HOMICIDAL NEIGHBOUR: sprinting in the wrong direction….

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Death, Health, Politics, Women

Did you know that Australia is committing $9.5 million of taxpayers’ money over three years to support abortion in poorer neighbouring countries…?
Neighbours like Vanuatu, Fiji and Nepal….
Meanwhile USA is aborting its abortion-funding programs.
President Trump has de-funded international abortion-provider “Planned Parenthood” – plus all fundings for foreign abortion agencies.
Australia’s abortion-funding comes under our so-called SPRINT program (as in “Sex Health Reproductive Program in Crisis and Post Crisis Settings”).
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop is all for it.
But is helping to abort their children a “neighbourly” thing to do for one’s neighbors?

CORY BERNARDI AND CRITICS: basic beliefs are getting important.

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Celebrities, Ethics, Faith, Family, Modern Church, Politics

Most Australia’s top politicians seem to be Catholics.
Or lapsed Catholics…attending Catholic school, then giving it up.
Prime Minister Turnbull, born non-Catholic, became a Catholic in 2002 — yet don’t his “progressive” views on abortion, same-sex marriage etc. contradict Catholic teaching?
Bill Shorten, who attended Catholic primary school then Xavier College — now likewise supports anti-Catholic policies.
Even Greens leader, Richard di Natale, attended Melbourne’s Parade Catholic College….
Perhaps one reason why Cory Bernardi gets bad media coverage is his cheerfulness about being Catholic — and trying to live accordingly.
In his book, “The Conservative Revolution”, Bernardi identifies “Faith” as number one of the “Four pillars” on which a better Australia must be founded.
He seeks a society based on “that uniquely Christian doctrine that man was ‘created in the image of God’, a principle on which the western concept of human dignity depends….”
The unkind label of “rat” has been thrown at him.
He is perhaps too well brought up to brand his critics as chameleons.

“LOCKED-IN SYNDROME”: the science and the spirituality.

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Health, Recent Developments, Science, Silence, Suffering, Truth

Locked-in syndrome is where a patient has mental awareness but, due to nervous system disease, is physically paralysed from the eyelids down.
In some cases the eyelids don’t work either.
By using non-invasive computer interface technology, which detects changes of oxygen levels in brain tissue, even the worst cases can now be communicated with….
…including asking them whether they are happy.
Interestingly, most of them say they are happy with their lives.
We might have expected them to be very frustrated.
But they aren’t.
It makes you ask yourself what “happy” really means.
Apparently it doesn’t necessarily mean getting everything you want.
Or fulfilling yourself by “following your dreams etc.”
Locked-in patients stay happy by adapting themselves – not to their dreams – but to reality here and now.
It’s what you might call accepting God’s will.
We aren’t going to understand God, but we can learn to trust him….
Here’s a video made by the daughter of a Rabbi who has experienced the condition:

CULTURES AND GOOD BEHAVIOUR: we all seem to have a lot to learn.

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Common Sense, Lifestyle, Women

Feiz Muhammad is at it again.
This Sydney-born Muslim propagandist — who once encouraged supporters to behead Dutch politician Geert Wilders — last week told followers never to attend non-Muslim gatherings:
“Any festivity or celebration built on other than Islam is prohibited.”
His version of Allah seems very unlike the “fatherly” God taught by Jesus Christ.
Feiz claims that raped women have nobody to blame but themselves — describing skimpy and see-through attire as inviting men to “use them as commodities”.
Naturally Feiz gets a bad press. Yet what he’s saying is at least partly true.
The victims aren’t the only ones at fault, but everyone knows it would help if they covered up a bit.
We all need to be encouraged, educated, threatened – whatever it takes — to eliminate both indecent exposure and impure thoughts and to encourage modesty and purity.
