ISLAM AND THE FUTURE: thoughts about the options to choose between.
Check our media — is the only religion anybody takes seriously today Islam?
Involving (for some) taking seriously Koran chapter 2 which says about unbelievers:
“Kill them wherever you find them…fight them until there is no more disbelief….”
How best to react?
Voting for “conservative” parties?
One Nation? But don’t they specialise in unpredictable candidates?
A new party sponsored by Mr Bernardi and Mrs Rinehart? But aren’t they too economically dry and market-loving?
Like it or not, governments have to provide some kind of safety-net for those whose children would starve if nobody intervenes….
No. Political parties, by themselves, can’t do the trick.
What could be handy is a Church with credibility — to get people thinking straight.
Straight — as in putting God first — and the common good for all God’s children equal first – and our beloved selfishness, greed, pride, lust etc. last and nowhere….
Politicians of whatever party might then notice that, to stay elected, they’ll need to start doing the right thing.
