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?

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.

AUSTRALIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION: moves towards a religion-free state.

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Faith, God, Media, Multiculturalism

The Catholic Church’s credibility is at a low ebb.
Which is at least partly self-inflicted.
That might please many people with control over our money, our media and our school curriculums.
The ones who despise Jesus Christ himself and what he stands for.
By threats and emotional blackmail, they chase Catholic belief — even the notion of natural moral law — out of the public debate.
Currently, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation seems to be phasing religion out of its air-waves.
The ABC’s executive producer of religion, Jane Jeffes, has been told she is “potentially redundant”
For semi-practising Christians, let’s make all this a learning opportunity.
For starters, let’s attend Sunday Mass regularly — top priority, without fail.
Weekdays too, if possible.
And, every day, live a very self-disciplined, very unselfish and cheerfully outspoken life.

EUTHANASIA FORUM: (non-)freedom of speech, Victoria-style.

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Celebrities, Death, Justice, Media, Politics

Recently a hall at the South Melbourne Catholic parish church was booked by the local state MP, Martin Foley, for a “community forum” about proposed new state laws to legalise euthanasia.
It turned out that the “forum” was to have one only guest speaker, Andrew Denton — a high-profile media celebrity activist whose pro-euthanasia views are well known.
The church asked that equal time be given for a speaker to put the case for not legalising euthanasia.
Mr Foley declined.
The church cancelled the booking for what looked like being less of a forum and more of a propaganda session.
For their trouble, the church has been roasted by The Age and other Fairfax outlets under the headline “Church blocks state MP from holding assisted dying community forum”.

JULIE BAIRD’S THOUGHTS ON TALKING TO CHILDREN ABOUT “TERROR”: maybe not good enough….

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Education, Media, Multiculturalism, Truth, Youth

ABC television host, Julie Baird, has offered widely-circulated newspaper comments telling parents “how to talk to kids about terror”.
Some of it is good. Julie emphasises that, while taking care not to traumatise them, we mustn’t tell children untruths.
Well said.
Then she says we should inform children that what the terrorists do is “nothing to do with Islam”.
Isn’t that an untruth?
Children need to know what is in the Islamic holy writings – the Koran, the Hadith etc.
They need to know how the prophet Muhammad himself went about gaining converts.

PORNOGRAPHY: does it matter? what to do?

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Entertainment, Ethics, Lifestyle, Media, Music

In Britain, internet service providers must automatically block pornography unless the account-holder opts out by turning the filter off.
That doesn’t apply here.
Most people think it should.
Unhappily the percentage of people wanting greater restrictions is less in the under-40 age group (50 percent) compared with over-60s (90 percent).
Pornography causes broken marriages. It’s potentially addictive — altering how your brain behaves — as per the book “The Brain that Changes Itself” by Norman Doidge.
So what?
The Australian Summit Against Sexual Exploitation, held four weeks ago in Brisbane, recommended an expert government panel to investigate the public health hazards and social harms of pornography — and to recommend new laws.
Censorship is an unpopular concept, but garbage disposal isn’t.
Our young people are being demoralised and damaged. Doing nothing isn’t an option.
At present, even the lyrics of most youth-oriented songs are hardly suitable to be videoed.
