“This is a wonderful, Christ-centered initiative that I hope other denominations will also follow.”
“The arguments for retaining slavery and abortion have more in common with each other than most people think.”
“The Uluru Statement from the Heart (TUSH) will not unite Australians but only divide us. It will not address the many real needs that indigenous peoples face on a day-to-day basis, and as such, it should be firmly rejected as a way forward. And that’s because it’s an attempt to undermine decision-making and due process in a western democracy that already affords aboriginal political representation.”
“Justice Thomas addresses the question of other Supreme Court decisions which used the Due Process Clause to federally legislate on other issues, in particular, federal rulings regarding contraception and gay marriage. Any previous decision, such as these, and which functions now as a precedent for a ‘substantive due process’ decision, should be reconsidered.”
“Unfortunately, there has been very little to no research on the positive contribution that colonization has made to the Australian context. But now is probably a good time to pause and pose the question, ‘What would our nation be like if colonization never occurred?’”
“That sound you’re hearing right now is the chirping of crickets. Because self-appointed cultural watchdogs are now noticeably silent.”
“Just as with the falling of the Berlin Wall, there is hope that evil regimes with their murderous laws need not dominate.”
“Purely and simply this research shows, there’s a lack of representation of boys and girls in non-traditional gender roles in these books – this can contribute to children from these families and backgrounds feeling excluded or marginalised,” Dr Adam argued.
“The unforgivable failures on so many levels means the world is still in the dark about the precise turn of events that sparked this pandemic, and this of course leaves the world vulnerable to whatever comes next.”
“We are about to witness one of the worst tragedies for women and girls in modern history.”
“Let’s not forget that Big Bird is six years old and Elmo is only three… but whatever, OK Groomer!”
On a deeper level, what is missing in so much of today’s art is the goal of what Roger Scruton argued is, ‘reclaiming beauty’.
To claim then that the abuse of women and children is “learnt” falsely implies that it wouldn’t have existed if European colonisation had never occurred. Indeed, it relies on the tired and offensive trope of the “noble savage”.
“At the epicentre of the coming evangelical catastrophe is a new religion—or, more specifically, a new cult…”
“If you remain silent when you ought to speak out against them, then your silence is tantamount to betrayal.”
Significantly, the vast majority of Aboriginal deaths in custody are experienced by those with pre-existing health conditions, rather than anything to do with police violence or ‘systemic racism’.
As has now become clear, Israel Folau lost his job as a professional athlete simply for paraphrasing a passage from the Bible. We know this is the case, since Miranda Devine subsequently reported in The Daily Telegraph, that Folau’s choice to post online would have been a problem, even if Folau had chosen to quote the Bible.
We are on the cusp of what could be labelled as ‘therapeutic totalitarianism’.
“So, let me get this straight. Peterson is a Nazi simply basically because he exhorts young men to take responsibility and clean their room. Yeah…I still don’t get the link?”
“Indeed, you seem to understand the Christian message better than many church leaders.”
