Australia Is Becoming a Nation Where Only State-Sanctioned Opinions Are Permitted
The speed of the descent largely depends on whether Australians rise up to defend those who are being unlawfully discriminated against.
Christensen: “Stop Christian Persecution”
“At least 75% of all religiously motivated violence and oppression is suffered by Christians,” Christenson said.
Where Do We Draw the Line in the Sand?
“I am genuinely surprised at how far we have been willing to go to obey the government and I think it is critical to ask the question: ‘At which point will I disobey?'”
City Pays $35k in Damages to Christian Ministry For Cancelling Event Because Speaker Refused to Affirm LGBTQ Ideology
When faced with the full hearing of a lawsuit, however, the City of Edinburgh Council folded on their decision and apologized to the ministry, admitting they were wrong to cancel the event based on the beliefs of the keynote speaker.
Over 56k Australians Sign Petition Opposing Vaccine Passports
Federal MP George Christensen voiced his support for the petition on social media, warning that digital vaccine passports may be used to deny service and employment to Australians because of their private and personal medical decisions.
European Rights Court Backs Compulsory Vaccinations for Children
According to reports, Thursday’s ruling is the first time a European rights court has ruled on compulsory vaccinations.
Lil Nas X and the Threat of Therapeutic Totalitarianism
We are on the cusp of what could be labelled as ‘therapeutic totalitarianism’.
Police Shut Down Good Friday Church Service, Threaten Congregation With Fines and Arrest
“The police brutally exceeded their powers by issuing their warrant for no good reason, as all government requirements were met,” the church said in a statement.
The Death of Democracy in Western Australia
“As a refugee child from a communist dictatorship regime, I will not stop fighting to preserve the rights and freedoms of Australia’s constitutional democracy, founded upon the Christian heritage and principles of love to our fellow man. I will continue to do so in the future.”
Proof The “Australia Burns Because of Climate Change” Narrative Was Propaganda
When our politicians start sounding like beauty pageant contestants, citing “Fight Climate Change” in the same way as “World Peace,” you know they’re signalling towards virtue, not science.
Canadian Pastor Jailed For Holding Church Services
“I read to my children the work the Lord is doing in people through James so they can see the sacrifice of their father is not in vain.”
Muslim driver refuses to take passengers with Christmas ham won in raffle
This real-world scenario is a great thought experiment to test our thinking on religious freedom. Do we believe the radical secularist view that there should be freedom from religion and zero tolerance of public expressions thereof, do we believe that someone should be able to do absolutely anything if a sincerely held religious belief, or if somewhere between those extremes: exactly where? An elderly couple had just won a Christmas ham in a raffle at their local club where they’d gone out for the night, and responsibly booked an Uber to take them home at about 10pm. The Muslim driver asked them…
How to sell authoritarian tyranny in a nation like Germany
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has given an unusually emotional speech about people having the freedom to articulate ideas she doesn’t like. The German leader warned, “We have freedom of expression in our country. For all those who claim they can no longer express their opinion, I say this to them. If you express a pronounced opinion you must live with the fact that you will be contradicted. Expressing an opinion does not come at zero cost. But freedom of expression has its limits. Those limits begin where hatred is spread. They begin where the dignity of other people is violated.…
Ordinary people can’t be trusted with freedom, says former high court justice
Former High Court justice Kirby’s nasty and hostile opinion letter warns religious freedom will let people publish opinions which are… nasty and hostile. “Religious freedom bill ‘will sustain nastiness and hostility’, Michael Kirby warns”… or at least, that’s what the headline in The Guardian article warns. Allow me to interpret that for you. “The God-given social liberty to disagree, debate, articulate and act in accordance with individual convictions (a.k.a religious freedom) will sometimes be used by people who aren’t very happy and they may say some things a nicer person wouldn’t.” What former High Court justice Michael Kirby is really saying is…
A lesson for Kristina Keneally on the basics of freedom and faith
Kristina Keneally is hopelessly muddled about how freedom works, specifically freedom of speech and freedom of religion. I’m sure she’s had it explained to her before, but inexplicably comprehension yet eludes her – an alarming observation to make of a Federal Senator. I think leftists are often so mired in the prejudice of their anti-freedom propaganda they often end up shadow boxing, fighting against things no serious person believes. Take, for example, yesterday’s eleven-part Twitter challenge to the Prime Minister doubling down on her insistence that someone who tweeted something vile he then regretted, deleted and apologised for three years…
World swimming body BANS religion during events
World swimming body FINA has levered podium protests at its Gwangju world championships as an opportunity to ban religious expression by competitors at all future FINA events. The new Code of Conduct provision entitled “rules of conduct during the competition” was enacted after an alleged drug cheat was snubbed at two official FINA medal ceremonies. The two new clauses, which could breach international human rights (ICCPR Article 18), effectively ban religious statements or behaviour “during competition” and appear to apply to all modes of communication, including social media. The new code of conduct, according to News.com.au, reads: “The competitors shall…
Christian student wins appeal after he was expelled for expressing a biblical view of marriage
Two years after marriage was redefined in the U.K., Felix Ngole found himself in a discussion on Facebook. The topic was same-sex marriage, and during the discourse, the-father-of-four put forward the Christian position on the matter. At the time, Ngole was a postgraduate student, enrolled in a social work course at Sheffield University. Two months after posting his comment, Ngole received a letter from the university informing him that he was under investigation. He was eventually summoned to a disciplinary hearing where he was told that he had breached social work guidelines regarding “personal conduct” and “brought the profession into…
Eric Abetz’s historical stand against those who sacrifice freedom in the name of ‘progress’
Eric Abetz gave one of the most important short speeches in Australian political history this week. Yet few Australians would know he even spoke a word, let alone know who Abetz is or what he stands for. Eric Abetz was born in Germany in 1958 and came with his family to Australia in 1961. In the 1980s, Abetz worked his way through ‘University as a part-time taxi driver, and farmhand. Once completing his law degree, he went on to practice law in Hobart’s northern suburbs’. He joined the Liberal Party in 1976 and was appointed to the Senate in February…
The Folau and Felix cases show, when marriage is redefined freedoms are taken away
Like Australia’s Israel Folau, Felix Ngole from the UK, is a litmus test regarding freedom of religion, as well as freedom of speech, in the Western World. And for all those concerned about the future of freedom of speech in this country, it couldn’t have come at a more opportune time. As John Steenhof, the managing director of Human Rights Law Alliance Limited, wrote in The Sydney Morning Herald: Britain’s second-highest court handed down a decision on religious freedom yesterday that will send chills down the collective spine of Rugby Australia. In contrast, Israel Folau and his team will be…
