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.

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?

MARRIAGE PLEBISCITE: what will the repercussions be?

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Common Sense, Faith, Family, God, Modern Church, Persecution, Politics

What about this “plebiscite” over changing Australia’s marriage laws to permit any couple to be “married” regardless of “gender”?
If the Yes vote wins, will Christians thinking and acting according to an opposite belief be sacked, taken to court etc?
Or will there be “exemptions”?
That question is scarcely relevant.
Jesus told his first 12 disciples they must “take up their cross daily” – i.e. be willing to be persecuted or killed any time.
Jesus himself died, nailed to a cross by those hating his teachings and life.
His modern-day followers can hardly go looking for “exemptions”.
Church leaders clamouring to the government to allow them “free speech” etc., aren’t really on the right track, are they?
God gives us free speech.
It makes no difference what anybody else alleges to give or not give.
One thing is certain, Christians will not and cannot “integrate” into a same-sex-marriage-tolerating society.

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.

A HISTORY LESSON: religion, midlife crisises and violence

by Arnold Jago in Faith, History, Jesus, Persecution, Truth

In the year 622AD, the Prophet Muhammad, a 52-year old preacher of peace, was gaining very few converts among his community in Mecca.
Should he just go on preaching until he got too old — or until perhaps irate unbelieving enemies killed him?
No. He changed tactics, moving north to Medina – now as a warlord – raiding, enforcing conversions, killing men, women and children.
Tactics still in use today….
In the year 29AD, Jesus Christ, aged 30-odd, a moderately successful preacher in rural Galilee, took his disciples south to confront his opposition in Jerusalem.
No violence – still simply preaching God’s “kingdom” and condemning hypocrisy.
These methods soon led to his death on a cross.
Which of these two teachers was strong and which was weak?
Today’s professing Christians seem weak.
Not so much because they fight badly, but because they compromise with secularism and hypocrisy….
Which includes the use of violence in ways incompatible with the gospel of their Founder.

AUSTRALIAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION TELLING US ALL ABOUT SEX: probably should stick to their knitting.

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Ethics, Family, Health, Lifestyle, Persecution, Politics

Every day more Australian businesses and individuals are pressured into compliance by the same-sex marriage lobby.
Now the Australian Medical Association has caved in – issuing, on May 27, a statement that:
(1) it’s the right of any adult consenting partners (regardless of sex) to have their relationship recognised under the Marriage Act.
(2) laws should prohibit businesses withholding goods or services from clients on the basis of sexual orientation.
(purely political views, not the business of the AMA to make pronouncements about.)
And:
(3) homosexual persons have poorer mental health and higher drug-abuse and suicide rates than others – “due to discrimination”.
(a subjective opinion, very hard to prove)
Ex-AMA head, Prof Kerryn Phelps, commented, “I don’t think the religious, cultural right-wing conservatives now have anywhere to hide….”
Do conservatives want to hide?
They’d probably settle for being able to live by and to express their beliefs free of persecution.
