Have there been no public hearings into sexual abuse at Government schools — like those into Catholic schools?
Are there going to be any?
If not, why not?
Have teachers’ unions managed to organise cover-ups?
And why do our media seemingly play down government school abuses?
Is it because complaints against government schools won’t help to bankrupt the Catholic Church?
And because compensation pay-outs against government education departments would raise our taxes — including those of news reporters?
These are possible reasons for self-censorship.
Would it not be a just move for the Royal Commission to investigate them?

Back to school?
Good news. You’ve been looking forward to it for weeks.
Good old school. Friends. Social life. Gossip. Idiots attention-seeking.
Judeo-Christian religion disappeared from the curriculum.
Replaced by the superstition of gender-fluidity with its yummy diet of emotivism, deconstructionism, utilitarianism and associated promiscuity-is-OK-if-you-feel-like-it mentality.
Not much to base real-life decisions on there.
Doesn’t sound very good actually.
Maybe get your mum to home-school you after all.

Sex education in schools need not occupy much time.
The basics can be taught in about five minutes out of the student’s twelve years in classrooms.
More detailed ramifications should take about another five minutes.
(1) The basics are covered in the first half of the following quotation: “God created man in the image of himself, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them…this is why a man leaves his father and mother and joins himself to his wife, and they become one body.”
(2) The ramifications are covered in the second half of the same quotation.
Other “gender theories” don’t really stand up.
Are there certain people who, for reasons related to their genes and chromosomes etc., don’t fit easily into male/female classification?
If so, their existence makes no difference to the truth of what applies to everybody else.
(Source of quote: the Bible, Book of Genesis, chapters 1 and 2)
It seems that the Victorian government is to end its arrangement with La Trobe University to deliver the “Safe Schools” gender-fluidity program into schools.
That is welcome news.
The most crucial issue is whether parents are able to decide what kind of world-view their child is subjected to.
For example, if he/she is in a school which does promote fluid-gender ideology — and the parents are not willing that their child be exposed to it — how will the government react?
What will they do to such parents and families?

Australia’s Referendum Council wants multiple summit meetings of “selected” indigenous representatives around Australia between now and April.
Already there are boycotts – claims that the wrong participants are being selected.
Everybody knows that Australia, for the foreseeable future, is going to remain a western society which accommodates minorities of non-western background.
Nothing wrong with that, provided all young Australians receive their needed schooling and employment-opportunities and protection from the bad things in western society.
What young people — black, white or brindle — do not need is exposure to alcohol, drugs, pornography, the “rights” mentality, gambling, greed, welfare-dependency and violence….
They need an intense spiritually-based motivation to live together in harmony as children of the one God and Father of all.
To have any real meaning our summits have to be based on that kind of spiritual theme.

Getting maximum value from school classes must partly depend on what’s happened since last lesson.
In Australia, one student in seven arrives at school having had no breakfast.
This can’t help.
No dietary input, no concentration, perhaps.
Many must come on Mondays having had no exposure to church or Sunday School over the weekend.
No spiritual input, no inspiration perhaps.
