TRUTH OR POST-TRUTH-POLITICS: is there a choice?

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Celebrities, Media, Modern Church, Politics, Truth

“Post-truth politics” — are you sick of hearing that catchphrase?
The idea that by getting people booing and hooraying on demand, you can control their minds (while by-passing their brains).
What alternative is there?
Jesus Christ said:
“If you abide in my word, you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free…. Truly, I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin.” (St John’s gospel, chapter 8)
Slave? Free?
Every weekend, 1.8 million Australians attend church.
If they listen properly and are taught gospel truth without fear or favour — might they stop being slaves to sin?
Could that be catching?
Australia perhaps becoming unrecognisable – free from lying, dishonesty and deceit?

WARRIENA, R.I.P. can her fate teach us something?

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Death, Lifestyle, Truth

Little chance of “dating sites” disappearing from the internet any time soon, I suppose.
Treating other people as random, anonymous, disposable sex-commodities is a big industry.
But isn’t it intrinsically unsustainable?
Think of poor Warriena Wright. Dead in her twenties. A life seemingly wasted. It’s too sad.
The Bible says, “If you satisfy your lustful appetites they will make you the sport of your enemies…. “He who strays after them sins against his own life.
“Rottenness and worms will possess him.
“All wisdom is fear of the Lord; perfect wisdom is the fulfilment of his Law.”

Technicolor language — but who can deny its truth?
Not trendy ideas, but can we afford to ignore them?
(Bible reference: Sirach chapter 19)

SAME SEX MARRIAGE IS THE THIN EDGE OF THE WEDGE: your freedom of speech and information will follow normal marriage our of the window.

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Common Sense, Family, Happiness, Justice

When or if same-sex “marriage” is legalised, will those who campaigned for it be happy and uplifted?
And will the rest of find that there was little against it for us after all?
I doubt it.
More likely those of us wanting the new legalisation overturned will be intimidated into silence.
Plus our children propagandised on the subject at school.
And will children adopted by same-sex couples find themselves denied knowledge of their biological heritage?

CLINTON AND SANDERS BRAWL OVER RELIGION AND POLITICS: donald trump will be pleased.

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Beauty, Celebrities, Common Sense

Hillary Clinton seeks to distance herself from an alleged conspiracy by Democratic Party leadership to label Sanders an “atheist” — thus frightening off southern evangelicals etc.
Mrs Clinton comments that it is “wrong and unacceptable” to bring religion into the political process.
A politically shrewd remark perhaps.
But rather question-begging.
Why is it wrong?
What does “wrong” mean?
Isn’t distinguishing between right and wrong an entirely religious act?
Mrs Clinton herself introduces a religious act into a political debate.
A better principle would be that we must ALWAYS bring religion into political debate.
Political debate doesn’t need no religion – it needs more and better religion.

AUSTRALIA’S MILITARY DEEPLY INTO POLITICS OF THE “PROGRESSIVE” KIND: what are we progressing towards? ask bernard gaynor.

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Justice, Lifestyle, Persecution, Politics

Australia’s military has rules forbidding its members from appearing in uniform – whether in person or in pictures — in any political context.
Andrew Hastie MP has refused to remove a picture of himself in uniform from electoral material and is now sacked from the Army Reserve.
So, is it a good rule?
There is some point to it, perhaps — but only if it is applied consistently.
Remember when Major Bernard Gaynor complained in 2013 about the Army inconsistently permitting officers in uniform to march in the very political Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras?
His arguments were ignored and he himself was ejected from the military.
His comment: “I am staggered by their hypocrisy.”
A bit of an understatement?

SAME-SEX SO-CALLED MARRIAGE: a critique of the thoughts of richard di natale.

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Celebrities, Family, Justice, Lifestyle

Australian Greens Party leader, Richard Di Natale, recently told the media that he married his wife as “a public expression of love and commitment . . . .”
“That’s being denied to people because the community says if you’re heterosexual, your love is something we should celebrate. If you’re homosexual, the love for your partner is different — considered not as strong, less important. That’s effectively prejudice.”
Such a statement is disappointing, coming from somebody who has had a Catholic school education and has enough brains to get qualified as a medical doctor.
People can celebrate things without demanding that they be given the approval by the country’s laws — for example celebrating one’s birthday.
The reason the law must involve itself in marriage is that the community considers married couples the normal environment in which children ought to be raised.
The drawbacks of having a child raised by same-sex households are too obvious to need spelling out.
