Helping Christian families to make a difference
Just a few items today - but some to act on... abortion in Victoria, chaplaincy, drugs and racial hatred laws.
It is time someone DROPPED A BOMB ON THE VICTORIAN LIBERAL PARTY and it seems, yet again, that it is up to Geoff Shaw. Thankfully, he helped get rid of Ted Baillieu as Premier and we thought that would help, but sadly Denis Napthine has been a total disappointment. He seems more interested in horses than saving the lives of unborn children, and now he is even opposing the removal of 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act - WHAT A GUTLESS DISGRACE!
If the Liberals do not get their act together by REPEALING those abortion laws and immediately changing their stupid position on 18C, there will be a landslide against them at the next election.
That will mean we get Labor back - yes, the ones who gave us the worst abortion laws in Australia, stole the consciences of our Doctors, and who have already stated they will spend 1 million dollars of our money telling our children the lie that homosexuality is normal.
MAY GOD HELP US - PLEASE!
You've probably heard about the horrific abduction of around 234 Nigerian schoolgirls by an Islamist group. The girls, mostly part of the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria, were kidnapped from an all-girls' school on 14 April. [Photo: school after the attack.]
Article: Tony Blair on the Islamist Threat, Mark Durie, Frontpage, 1/5/2014.
Speech: Why the Middle East Matters - a keynote speech by Tony Blair, 23/4/2014.
Media article: Tony Blair: 'West should focus on radical Islam', BBC, 23/4/2014.
Let me just give you one section of Mark's article:
"Tony Blair is right to call the world to engage with and reject radical Islamist ideology. This is a defining global challenge of our time. He is also correct to affirm that this ideology is religious. But he is profoundly mistaken to characterize it as un-Islamic. The fallacious arguments he puts forward for distinguishing Islam from Islamism are nothing but flimsy rhetoric. The hard evidence against separating Islamism from Islam is clear, the sentiments of some pious Muslims non-withstanding.
Islamism is a valid interpretation of Islam, not in the sense that it is the only ‘correct’ or ‘true’ one, but because its core tenets find ready and obvious support in the Islamic canon, and they align with core principles of 1400 years of Islamic theology. (To make this observation is not the same thing as saying that all pious Muslims are Islamists!)
Blair is right to call for the West to combat “radical Islam”, but the reason why “radical” is a correct term to use for this ideology is that radical means “of the root,” and Islamist ideas are deeply rooted in Islam itself. Islamism is a radical form of Islam. This explains why the radicalization project has been advancing with such force all over the world.
In June 2013, Canadian polyamorists and activists in New Zealand asked for legal recognition of their relationships. [Read Our report]
Back in 2006, Andrew Bolt wrote about an ABC radio conversation where a homosexual activist seriously talked about three men ‘marrying’ or having their relationship legally recognised – the article is still stunning today...
We thee wed (no longer on the Herald Sun site, but posted on the Russian Pravda site).
Experts have long warned of the societal consequences of non-Biblical “marriage” models. In an article published last December, Ken Klukowski of the Center for Religious Liberty explains that the legalization of homosexuality opens the door to polygamy.
“If government cannot forbid homosexual conduct, this argument goes, then neither can it deny those who define themselves by homosexual behavior to officially recognize any such relationship as a marriage,” Klukowski wrote. “It began a religious and philosophical debate in America between two different definitions of marriage and family.”
“The new conception of marriage, rooted in the proliferation of no-fault divorce laws in the 1970s and the sexual revolution, is that marriage is about personal happiness and fulfillment,” he continued. “People should be free to form whatever relationships they find personally satisfying and to follow whatever their personal sexual inclinations are to engage in whatever form of sexual behavior they find gratifying.”
“If, therefore, you have a right to officially recognize those homosexual relationships through redefining marriage to include same-sex couples, then there is no reason to say it cannot include more than two people, so long as everyone is a consenting adult,” Klukowski proposed. “The exact legal arguments for same-sex marriage equally apply to multiple-person marriages.”
