Australian Education Minister, Senator Birmingham, now compares Catholic education bosses to Judas — willing to betray God’s cause for money.
With all Australian schools pressured by government to indoctrinate students with gender-theory/promiscuity-normalising propaganda etc….
How could Catholic schools accept money from such tainted sources anyway?
If government can coerce the Church into making Church schools de facto secular, no reason for such schools to exist remains.
Saint Mary MacKillop ran into all this 150 years ago and refused all government funding.
She wrote:
“Australia is in every sense a dangerous place for Catholics. The governments aim at strict secular schools and institutions for the poor…the poor and their children (being) torn away from the true Faith.”
Mr Shorten and Senator Birmingham may have different styles, but aren’t their long-term plans to exterminate orthodox Catholic teaching identical?

The ALP plans to corner the Catholic vote by offering Catholics what they want most.
What do Catholics want most?
Mr Shorten thinks they most want money.
An extra $250 million for Catholic schools should do the trick.
The Catholic church’s founder, Jesus Christ, said it is impossible to worship both God and money….
Has his church now made that decision and opted for the money?
Australia’s first saint, Mary MacKillop, insisted that no school run by her Order would ever accept government money.
But times have changed.
A literally Catholic school would cost little to run — its staff of priests, brothers and nuns requiring no pay.
If the church can’t generate recruits for the religious life they will lack the personnel to teach the gospel.
Arguably they would lack a gospel to teach.
By accepting government money, do you not, of necessity, accept a curriculum of government-sponsored paganism, including cultic gender-theory and lowest-denominator pseudo-tolerance?


MICHAEL McCORMACK, POLITICIAN: learning the art of compromise in a hurry

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Celebrities, Ethics, Family, History, Politics

Michael McCormack, new Nationals Party Leader — back in 1993 while editor of the Wagga Wagga Advertiser – wrote blaming homosexuality for AIDS and calling homosexual acts “sordid behaviour”.
Complaints made to the Australian Press Council were not upheld.
Mr McCormack subsequently wrote another editorial apologising for the first one.
He has, in fact, apologised repeatedly.
In 2017, he said he has “grown and learnt not only to tolerate, but to accept all people regardless of their sexual orientation….”
In parliament he recently voted Yes for same-sex marriage.
For the rest of his career, won’t this man be blackmailed into reciting his back-down over and over?
Poor Mr McCormack – hardly a day in the job, already a lame duck – puppet-like leader of the leftovers of the remains of a values-free ex-party.


BROAD VS. JOYCE: a question of character?

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Celebrities, Ethics, Family, Politics

Mr Andrew Broad MP has called on Barnaby Joyce to “bench himself”.
Because “when character is lost, all is lost” (he was quoting Billy Graham)
Everyone knows there are many adulterous characters in our parliaments.
In what way is Mr Joyce different?
Well he could have had the baby quietly killed (aborted) a few months ago, but he didn’t….
Let’s admire him for that — not for everything has done, but for having the character to get that supremely important decision right.
What about Mr Broad’s “character”?
After months and years of posturing as a defender of Traditional marriage, he voted Yes in parliament for the same-sex bill.
He recently (re-)tweeted that he himself should be National Party leader.
But does he have the necessary character?


BATMAN BY-ELECTION: what about Kevin Bailey? Kevin who? some lateral thinking needed

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Politics

The Batman federal electorate in Melbourne’s north faces a by-election on March 17.
For generations Batman was a safe Labor seat. Not now.
In 2016, the Greens managed 36% of the primary vote.
Labor’s David Feeney scraped home on (mainly Liberal) preferences.
This time there will be no Liberal candidate. The Greens could win.
Interestingly, the Australian Conservatives Party has a candidate, Kevin Bailey AM.
An ex-SAS soldier, Mr. Bailey was Honorary Consul General for East Timor from 2002 to 2013, a Herald Sun columnist for 11 years and has hosted radio talkback programs. He is also an un-embarrassed Christian.
He seems a better prospective MP than anyone Labor or the Greens can offer.
Perhaps also better suited to be Prime Minister than our present one.
That may have to wait.
Meanwhile, let’s hope Batman voters are smart enough to at least get him into parliament.


FIXING AUSTRALIA: in three simple steps

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

What to do about older men falling for and/or exploiting young female associates?
Three obvious changes might be worth considering:
• Keep young females safe at home with family, learning how to be part of a family until they are ready to marry
• End consumption of alcohol by temptation-prone persons (i.e. everybody)
• Discontinue provocative dressing by young females
These suggested moves are only moderately trendy — but once we’re used to them everybody should be better off.
