HOW TO MAKE YOUR CHILD PHYSICALLY AND/OR MENTALLY UNWELL: just keep up the not-so-good work!

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Celebrities, Death, Education, Family, Health, Lifestyle, Youth

Australian children are being increasingly exposed to indoctrination.
Learning how gender is something fluid — not necessarily one of two kinds.
And how having two “parents” of the same sex is normal.
And how the key to a person’s identity what sex-related practice turns him/her on.
And how whatever turns you on is your “right” — so long as we pretend nobody else is getting hurt.
So adultery, fornication, casual sex, lust etc. are all OK now.
Since Biblical times, and before that, they were considered bad and perverse.
Perhaps it’s time we took them seriously again.
Let’s teach children that other people aren’t there just to gratify them.
First, of course, we’d have to ourselves stop thinking and acting badly.
Perhaps we don’t feel like making that change.
So maybe forget all about it.
If we do, stand by and watch youth suicides, adult suicides, sexually-transmitted diseases and a few other things keep increasing.

CHILD PROTECTION? CHILD INDOCTRINATION? GENDER THEORY? Australia getting it wrong. Other places doing better….

by Arnold Jago in Common Sense, Education, Ethics, Family, Youth

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?

ROYAL COMMISSION INTO CHILD ABUSE: did it do any good?

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, crime, Family, Modern Church, Recent Developments, Youth

Australia’s Royal Commission into Institutional Child Sex Abuse is over.
Commissioner Justice Peter McClellan has made his speech about how “the nation thanks the survivors”.
The Royal Commission received allegations from over 4000 people regarding abuse by Catholic Church workers.
Which is shameful.
Does the Commission, however, distort the context?
Their eagerness to discredit the Catholic Church seems almost to outweigh any interest in reducing overall child abuse in Australia.
Were thecommissioners unaware of just how common abuse is in the general community?
GP doctors encounter its effects, day in, day out, week in, week out….
It’s everywhere.
Most victims, of course, have never even met a priest.
Who they have met is their mother’s latest boyfriend, their uncle, their big brother, their sport coach etc.
Yes, the Church has done badly.
The rest of society, has done – and is doing – worse.
Pretending it’s mainly a Church problem is dishonest and helps nobody.

AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS: on what are they based? on what should they be based?

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Common Sense, Education, Faith, God, Multiculturalism, Persecution, Truth, Youth

Some people want to take away the freedom of so-called “faith-based” schools to teach traditional understandings about sex, marriage and morals.
How about that?
For a start, the term “faith-based” is a distraction.
Anybody using their reason can see that God is real — and that there’s a natural moral law built into the universe.
Faith isn’t actually the basis of teaching true religion.
Faith comes later, after reason.
Schools seeking to teach true religion might, perhaps, more logically be called “reason-based”.
It’s government schools, with their cult-like dogmas of fundamentalist gender-theory, which fail the reason test.
Perhaps they might, in all honesty, call themselves “superstition-based”.

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.

NEW YOUNG VOTERS ENROLLING: to have their say about….

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

Brain research suggests that human beings aren’t “adult” until aged about 25.

So why are people under 25 allowed to drink, drive etc.?

And to vote?

Especially to vote on matters about which they have little idea – like marriage?

What adults owe the young is not to give them “rights” which they can’t handle responsibly.

No. What they owe them is a good example of exercising self-control — and living by God’s laws.
