AUSTRALIA DAY, JANUARY 26: Pat Cash wants it changed. Do you?

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Celebrities, History, Justice, Lifestyle, Multiculturalism

Pat Cash doesn’t want to observe Australia Day on January 26.
He’s upset about on-going poverty in many Aboriginal communities.
Yes, white people have treated Aborigines badly at times.
Mostly we’re not actively hostile — just unsure how to do better in our inter-racial relationships.
Mostly we can’t see how changing the Australia Day date would help.
Since time began, every country has experienced population inter-minglings which modified and devastated the old ways.
A land like Australia was never going to stay hunter-gatherer land.
That being so, the best we can do now is to express mutual respect and — where appropriate — mutual forgiveness.
Mr. Cash’s involvement in a charity working with aboriginal communities sounds great.
Maybe more of us should do the same, finding ways to do good things together.
One very good thing being to let bygones be bygones — and celebrate Australia Day as one.

GENDER-CULT INDOCTRINATION IN SCHOOLS: perhaps not inevitable?

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Education, Ethics, Lifestyle, Politics

The government of Peru is about to withdraw a 2016 national school curriculum following opposition to its “gender ideology” from parent’s group #ConMisHijosNoTeMetas (which translates as “don’t mess with my children.”)
In March 2017, the group organised marches — 1.5 million people demonstrating against the “progressive” gender ideology.
In August, Peru’s Superior Court of Justice ruled in favor of a lawsuit against the Department of Education — arguing that the curriculum was an attempt to indoctrinate schoolchildren.
What if 1.5 million Australian parents came out on the streets demonstrating against government-imposed “Safe Schools” (and similar) so-called anti-bullying programs?
Might that bring about an end to our children’s exposure to gender-cultic disinformation?
Do we care enough to at least have a try?

XMAS? FESTIVE SEASON? YULETIDE? this season has got a proper Name.

by Arnold Jago in Australia, History, Jesus

Use the word “Christmas”.
With a capital C.
Remember the Baby who grew up to defy a Roman governor — telling him that he, the governor, had no power.
That governor was soon gone.
Then the Roman Empire ceased to exist — 1500 years ago.
The influence of Jesus Christ lives on.
And will outlast any “progressives” who hope to wipe him out of Australia’s present and future.

MARRIAGE LAW AND CUSTOMS: will we ever get them right? why not?

by Arnold Jago in Australia, crime, Ethics, Family, Lifestyle

While Australia has been softening its laws about sexual behaviour — white-anting traditional marriage — something different is going on not far away.
On December 12, Indonesia’s Constitutional Court went within one vote (5 votes to 4) of criminalising all sex outside of heterosexual marriage.
In some Indonesian localities, police already raid parties and clubs where such practices occur. There are reports of offenders being publicly flogged.
To many of us Australians, such a response to deviant behavior might seem unacceptably harsh.
Of course, to the nationals of many countries, Australia’s “liberal” trends must seem unacceptably slack and amoral.
Will the human race ever unite in an understanding of natural moral law acceptable to all — able to bring all together as truly loving brothers and sisters?

ROYAL COMMISSION INTO CHILD ABUSE: did it do any good?

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, crime, Family, Modern Church, Recent Developments, Youth

Australia’s Royal Commission into Institutional Child Sex Abuse is over.
Commissioner Justice Peter McClellan has made his speech about how “the nation thanks the survivors”.
The Royal Commission received allegations from over 4000 people regarding abuse by Catholic Church workers.
Which is shameful.
Does the Commission, however, distort the context?
Their eagerness to discredit the Catholic Church seems almost to outweigh any interest in reducing overall child abuse in Australia.
Were thecommissioners unaware of just how common abuse is in the general community?
GP doctors encounter its effects, day in, day out, week in, week out….
It’s everywhere.
Most victims, of course, have never even met a priest.
Who they have met is their mother’s latest boyfriend, their uncle, their big brother, their sport coach etc.
Yes, the Church has done badly.
The rest of society, has done – and is doing – worse.
Pretending it’s mainly a Church problem is dishonest and helps nobody.

BOB KATTER MP: seems to be annoying the right people.

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Death, Ethics, Family, Health, History, Lifestyle

Bob Katter MP makes the point that “equality” for homosexually-active persons can be dangerous.
For example, giving them the “equal” right to donate blood has led, historically, to multiple deaths from AIDS in little children receiving their blood.
Mr. Katter’s mention of that fact has been described as a “homophobic rant”.
Many people were peeved that he should raise the subject.
However, the fact remains that those children are still dead.
Doesn’t giving homosexual couples the right to adopt children – now further entrenched by laws permitting them call their unions “marriage” — lead to harmful untruths being injected into the children’s brains?
Schools too, will be bullying children into undergoing gender-theory indoctrination which mocks and belittles the potentially beautiful institution of natural marriage.
