MESSAGES FROM TWO POPES: appealing to reason?

by Arnold Jago in Faith, God, Modern Church, Multiculturalism

Pope Benedict XVI is still alive.
The other day, when turning 90, he wrote:
“The clash between radically-atheistic conceptions of the State and the emergence of a radically-religious state in the Islamist movements, leads our time into an explosive situation….”
In 2006, Pope Benedict made a famous speech quoting a 14th century emperor:
“Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you’ll find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.
“God is not pleased by blood . . . whoever would lead someone to faith needs the ability to speak well and to reason properly, without violence and threats.”
Pope Francis, on the other hand, has just visited the more-or-less radically-religious Islamic state of Egypt.
Francis’s opinion about Islam is that “it’s not right to identify Islam with violence….”
These two Popes can’t both be right.

THE MAY 7 FRENCH ELECTION: pretty important issues affecting the whole world

by Arnold Jago in Ethics, Faith, Family, Modern Church, Multiculturalism, Politics

Emmanuel Macron is favourite to become France’s president on May 7.
The election has been described as a choice between Le Pen and “Le Pawn”.
Pawn of what?
Macron’s background is in banking. Big banking. Macron’s employer from 2008 to 2012 was Banque Rothschild.
Predictably, he’s a supporter of the EU, open borders and the socialist status quo.
In 2007, Macron married a woman who, 20-odd years previously, was his (married) school teacher – older than Macron by 25 years.
You’d think the last thing a country like France needs is mass-immigration and trivialisation of traditional family and marriage.
Secure borders and respect for traditional marriage are among the main points of Macron’s rival, Marine Le Pen.
Interestingly, Le Pen’s attitudes to immigration are very similar to those expressed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (section 2241).

HOW TO LOSE YOUR JOB? try being a Christian in the wrong place at the wrong time.

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Faith, Lifestyle, Modern Church, Multiculturalism, Suffering

Homosexual-lifestyle activists are picking off, one-by-one, people associated with the so-called Australian Christian Lobby.
The message is, “quit your connection with this religious group or lose your job”.
Notable victims have been a Mr Allaby and a Mr Chavura – an engineer and a university lecturer.
Jesus Christ did warn people that being his follower means “denying yourself” – going without certain things. (Matthew’s gospel, chapter 16)
Perhaps, in these days, going without your job.
Jesus himself, due to his commitment to God, had to go without the freedom to move his arms and legs when they nailed him to a cross.
We, too, would do well to willingly undergo suffering in God’s cause.
Not to go looking for it, but to accept it and offer it up to God — if and when it happens.

FEAR STALKS AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY WHILE WE DROWSE: too soon it will be too late.

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Family, Media, Multiculturalism, Persecution

Coopers Breweries are currently in panic mode – terrified of being boycotted by the homosexual lobby.
They’re busily disclaiming any support for a televised polite discussion between two politicians about same-sex-marriage (SSM) — which happened to advertise their product.
What might be the attitude of ordinary NON-homosexual beer-drinkers to SSM? It’s on them that Coopers depend most of all to make money.
Nobody knows for sure.
However, their attitude to spineless inhibiting of free speech by big-moneyed corporations — I think we can guess that.
The debate itself was wishy-washy and missed the main point.
Isn’t the worst thing about SSM that such couples will use their being “married” to reinforce their claimed “right” to adopt children – thus unnecessarily depriving children of a mother-father-based family unit to belong to?
That aspect didn’t get a mention.

RACE RELATIONS LAW, SECTION 18C: striking the right balance….

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Common Sense, Multiculturalism, Persecution, Politics

In Australia it’s illegal to say, write or draw anything that offends anybody regarding their background.
We have bureaucrats paid to decide whether the offended-ness is justified — or if the expression of opinion was legitimate.
The bureaucratic decisions seem usually biased (towards the complainers).
Instead should we have panels of reasonable, typical, un-biased citizens — not bureaucrats — to decide?
Bondi tram passengers? Pub patrons?
But are not many pub-dwellers regular alcohol-drinkers? A possible worry, brain function-wise?
Tram-travellers could be a more reasonable cross-section.
Am I allowed to mention that people younger than 30 shouldn’t be eligible?
It’s well known that brain development is incomplete until at least one’s late twenties.
We could argue all day.
But it’s really not so complicated.
Best simply scrap Section 18C and deal with intimidation etc. under other already-existing legislation.

MR. TRUMP BEING HARSH AGAIN: and getting criticised again, rightly or wrongly.

by Arnold Jago in Celebrities, Justice, Multiculturalism, Politics

President Trump plans to restrict entry of immigrants from certain Muslim-majority countries.
Harsh?
There is, of course, a “harsh” side to Islam itself.
The Koran (chapter 2) says about unbelievers: “Kill them wherever you find them….”
And (chapter 47): “When ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, strike off their heads….”
Harsh?
In the countries which Mr. Trump has in mind, pre-teen children are used as soldiers and those at school learn to operate automatic weapons.
Harsh?
In the same countries girls must cover up from head to foot – Western-style female attire being considered degrading.
Harsh?
Or is that one something they’ve got right and we haven’t?
In those countries, school-children even miss out on the West’s gender-fluidity theories and brainwashing….
With the West as decadent as at present, are we in any condition to criticise anybody about anything?
Meanwhile Mr. Trump’s little experiment will be interesting to watch.
