SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LAWS: no bad results? really? what has happened in Canada?

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

If you still believe that legalising “same sex marriage” won’t lead to you losing your freedom of religion and your freedom of speech….
And that it won’t lead to classroom brain-washing of your children about how anal sex etc. is OK….
And that parents won’t lose the right to take children out of classes which teach anti-family ideology….
If you believe all that, you had better have a look at this video:

If it can happen in Canada, it can happen here.
Be warned.

ADELAIDE? RICHMOND? DOES IT MATTER: are we over-sported to the point of brain-damage?

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Common Sense, Lifestyle, sport, Youth

If a community spends a full day not working because the next day 40 or 50 men will be pushing, shoving and brawling for possession of a ball at an oval somewhere….
What does it say about that community’s common-sense level?
Obviously, sport isn’t altogether a bad thing – at least in theory.
But in practice…?
Young children are born knowing nothing.
Are we teaching them by example that free time is best devoted primarily to sport?
Or, even worse, to sitting on our bottoms looking at sport?
Might we do better to spend at least part of such time on our knees – asking God to show us what on earth we are here on earth for?
Many families find Sundays an opportunity to do that.
Something to think about.

MR JOHN HOWARD AND THE “MARRIAGE” DEBATE: what is he up to?

by Arnold Jago in Celebrities, Family, Justice, Lifestyle, Persecution

Ex-Prime Minister John Howard, said the other day:
“Changing the definition of marriage – which has lasted for time immemorial – is not an exercise in human rights and equality. It is an exercise in de-authorising the Judaeo-Christian influence in our society….”
He criticised people having to vote without having been told the full details of how the changed law would affect society.
What he said seems fair enough.
Why didn’t say it when it could have made a difference?
To be any use, he would have had to say it long ago.
It’s too late now. Most of us have voted already.
He spoke up too late.
Months too late.
He must know that.
What is he up to?

PLEBISCITE NOW UNDER-WAY: hold onto your hat.

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Family, Justice, Lifestyle, Modern Church

Yes, this plebiscite is a waste of time and effort.
Its result will make no difference to anybody.
Regardless of the result, both sides of the debate will continue doing what they are already doing.
Supporters of the transgender “marriage” idea will keep seeking more and better legalistic strategies for destroying the Christian religion and the community which identifies with it.
The churches will probably keep seeking “exemptions” and other strategies to hopefully preserve their rights to legally express and live by their beliefs.
The church might as well forget about exemptions.
They will be meaningless.
They will rapidly be withdrawn.
Better to start preparing believers in how to deal with and how to survive intimidation, bullying and persecution.

AUSTRALIAN CHILDREN AND BRAIN-ABUSE: what are you going to do about it?

by Arnold Jago in Education, Family, God, Lifestyle, Media, Persecution

Most Australian children don’t learn at school the reasons for belief in God.
What they increasingly hear is materialism plus irrational ideas about gender.
The obvious roles of the two biological sexes are undermined by our children’s educators, right from when they are toddlers.
It’s going to be hard to undo this damage – especially with the increasingly restrictive censorship by Australia’s corporate media.
Hard or not, those aware of what is happening must speak out in whatever ways they can.
The persecutions inflicted on them they must just accept.

MARRIAGE: do we know exactly what we are “debating” about?

by Arnold Jago in Common Sense, Family, Justice, Lifestyle, Politics

A normal human sexual act is an act of the kind that can result in initiating new human life.
Such acts between man and woman have resulted in the continuing survival of our race.
Our culture will, obviously, only be sustainable if we esteem and reverence such intimacies within the context of loyal heterosexual families.
People unable or unwilling to live in accord with this pattern can, perhaps, find other ways to contribute to the common good.
If they do, they certainly do not merit hostile treatment.
However, their status is, by definition, less than ideal.
“Marriage” – that which publicly solemnises willing cooperation with biological and social realities — is not for them.
