AUSTRALIAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION TELLING US ALL ABOUT SEX: probably should stick to their knitting.

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Ethics, Family, Health, Lifestyle, Persecution, Politics

Every day more Australian businesses and individuals are pressured into compliance by the same-sex marriage lobby.
Now the Australian Medical Association has caved in – issuing, on May 27, a statement that:
(1) it’s the right of any adult consenting partners (regardless of sex) to have their relationship recognised under the Marriage Act.
(2) laws should prohibit businesses withholding goods or services from clients on the basis of sexual orientation.
(purely political views, not the business of the AMA to make pronouncements about.)
And:
(3) homosexual persons have poorer mental health and higher drug-abuse and suicide rates than others – “due to discrimination”.
(a subjective opinion, very hard to prove)
Ex-AMA head, Prof Kerryn Phelps, commented, “I don’t think the religious, cultural right-wing conservatives now have anywhere to hide….”
Do conservatives want to hide?
They’d probably settle for being able to live by and to express their beliefs free of persecution.

MARGARET COURT: back in the news and not pleasing everybody….

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Celebrities, Faith, Family, Lifestyle, Modern Church, sport

Margaret Court says marriage should be defined the way the Bible defines it.
Some “progressive” people think she needs a serious lesson in how you can’t say that there here.
They want her deprived of recognition as Australia’s best-ever tennis star.
They want things named in her honour to be given a different name.
Is she really an un-Australian and un-cool fanatic?
Check YouTube clips of Margaret playing contemporary top tennis ladies like Chrissie Evert.
She looks as though she’s having a quiet hit-up. She seems to be losing a lot of points. Then fast-forward and, behold, she wins the last point and there she is holding the Cup.
Check also video clips of her speeches and sermons about her faith.
She doesn’t appear very frenzied.
In fact, what she says seems to make a bit of sense.

ENSLAVED NEW WORLD: occasional new slogans but inwardly just more of the same?

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Ethics, Lifestyle, Media, Politics

Head of state: a deranged, amoral, self-absorbed, survival-obsessed psychopath?
Media: a lying, brain-rotting tool of corporate wealth?
Traditional culture: a hypocritical, enfeebled, decaying carcase?
Youth: promiscuous, social-media-group-think-addicted narcissists?
Name me one nation on earth where the above doesn’t apply.
Fair-go-mouthing Australia? Great-again America?
Hardly.
Do I, perhaps, exaggerate?
Anyway, if any renewal of goodness is to happen anywhere, it will have to start small.
In our own personal decision-making. In our families. In our church(?)
Now and then there are signs of hope.
But don’t wait for somebody else to do something.
Repeat these words regularly:
“Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as in heaven….”

GOOD FRIDAY: over for 2017, what was it all about?

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Entertainment, God, Lifestyle, sport

Last week, some (Fairfax) newspapers carried an article about “how Good Friday in Australia compares to the rest of the world”.
Saying that, “Good Friday just got slightly more lively in Australia”…referring to the (yawn) AFL football match.
What could be more un-lively than large sweaty men brawling for possession of a ball?
And that, “still the quietest day of the year…Good Friday is no big deal”.
Incorrect. Quietness is a very big deal – a scarce commodity, worth cherishing where it survives.
Quiet minds become full of thoughts – about life, about purpose, about meaning, about God….
Yet, mostly, don’t we avoid quiet, preferring distractions — about food, about feeling good, about kidding ourselves we look good…?

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.
