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?

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018? or another beauty like the 2017 fiasco?

by Arnold Jago in Education, Ethics, History, Lifestyle, Modern Church, Recent Developments

2017 saw the ideal of marriage as a holy, sacramental act of self-giving defiled and scrapped.
We also ditched the sanctity of life in its dying stages.
Our school curricula abandoned the use of reason – replaced by dangerous, trendy, dumbed-down, cult-like gender-fluid absurdities.
So, what about 2018?
First up, a government-funded “panel” to tell Christians when they may — and when they may not – publicly state Christian teaching on social issues?
A panel which will apparently include a Jesuit priest. The orthodox Catholic position looks like going unrepresented.
What difference does it make that the present occupant of the office of Pope is also a Jesuit?
Next, are we to expect priests to come under pressure to abandon the privacy of the sacrament of Confession?
Who, in 2018, will have the fortitude to stand up and say that that cannot and will not happen?

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?

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.

RE “SAME-SEX” OR “MULTI-GENDER” MARRIAGE: is Mr. Dean Smith and accompilces pulling our leg?

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Common Sense, Family, Lifestyle, Media, Politics

The “Marriage Amendment Bill” proposed by Dean Smith MP is about whether any two Australians may marry “regardless of their sex or gender”.
Some politicians previously posing as conservatives apparently intend voting for the amendment.
Like Nationals MP for Mallee, Andrew Broad, saying his vote will “follow the national result”. (The Australian, November 16, page 8)
Does he mean the recent plebiscite on marriage by “same-sex couples”?
But “same-sex couples” doesn’t mean the same as “regardless of gender”….
Gender-ideology is a new world of imagined multiple gender-identities – “fluid”, “non-binary” etc. – promoted by cultic indoctrinators populating our schools, media etc.
MP’s can’t “follow the national vote”. There has been no national vote – not about what D. Smith and supporters are promoting.
If the Nationals weaken on this, supporters may drop them and look elsewhere for genuine conservatives.
Perhaps the Shooters Party, Senator Bernardi’s Conservatives — or somebody else?

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE NOW VOTED OFF MAP: what price “religious freedom”?

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

Now that the marriage plebiscite has resulted in a Yes vote, will people committed to an opposite belief be sacked, taken to court etc?
Or will there be legislated religious “freedoms” and “exemptions”?
The question is hardly relevant.
Jesus told the first 12 disciples that they must “take up their cross daily”.
Jesus himself having been crucified for his teachings and life, current Church leaders demanding that the government permit them “free speech” etc., would appear to have missed the point.
God has given us – and demands of us — free speech.
It makes no difference what anybody else chooses to give or not give.
Serious Judaeo-Christians will not and cannot “integrate” into a same-sex-marriage tolerating society.
