As many jobs have been lost and businesses closed due to the CCP Virus the murder of the unborn continues unabated. ‘In summary, in Australia in general and in NSW in particular, pro-abortion services have taken advantage of the coronavirus – expanding their services online and via phone and continuing most of their abortion procedures unabated. The abortion industry is alive and well in Australia.‘
‘In conclusion, the worldwide abortion industry is alive and well – unlike the babies’ lives they callously and routinely destroy. Pro-abortion advocates have mobilised effectively and swiftly to take advantage of the coronavirus pandemic. They are exploiting this time of global crisis to weaken restrictions on abortions.‘https://righttolifensw.org.au/impact-of-coronavirus-on-abortion/
Will you be getting the China Virus vaccine? My wife says she won’t but I will continue to mull it over in the space called ‘my head’ and when it is available then make up my mind. However, Australia’s Federal ‘Health Minister Greg Hunt says “absolute safety” is the key to approving and rolling out a coronavirus vaccine next year. “We are an island sanctuary so what we do with vaccines, we want to make sure, is about absolute safety and extending the safe Australia concept that we have but doing it in a way that provides absolute confidence to the Australian people,” he told Sky News. The vaccine will be voluntary but Mr Hunt said he believed that Australians will get themselves vaccinated to protect one another. “My hope and my belief is that Australians will help and protect other Australians and themselves through the vaccination program.” Mr Hunt cautioned Australians not to be complacent with safety measures against coronavirus, even as Australia has recorded few cases. “This is still a dangerous, contagious, and deadly disease. Your help can save lives.”‘https://www.skynews.com.au/details/_6214409491001?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily%20Sky%20News%20Australia%20%20Newsletter&utm_content=Daily%20Sky%20News%20Australia%20%20Newsletter+CID_11da7aa9c7d9a1d530043c31be155f28&utm_source=Daily%20newsletter&utm_term=Your%20help%20can%20save%20lives%20Hunt%20urges%20people%20to%20consider%20vaccinations
My wife and I were expecting this from not only Qantas but most if not all the airlines. What were we expecting? ‘Last night, Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce said the Australian flag carrier was working on their terms and conditions to make ‘No Jab, No Fly’ official Qantas policy.
I’m no anti-vaxxer. I’ve had every Vaccine, and so have my children.
But like many around the world, I’m a little sceptical about the fastest produced Vaccine in history. It hasn’t been tried and tested so no one could possibly know if and what the longterm effects are. And with everything we now know about this virus, I can understand why so many people will reject this injection and want to stop their kids from having it.
The Vaccine is certainly scarier than the virus, especially when it comes to children.
Is mandatory-vaccination even legal?
We currently have ‘No Jab, No Pay’ and ‘No Jab, No Play’ legislation that essentially forces parents to vaccinate their children or suffer consequences that most couldn’t bare, such as no childcare or Family tax benefits.
Whether you agree with that legislation or not, it set the precedence.’https://www.rebelnews.com/this_is_what_you_need_to_know_about_the_qantas_no_jab_no_fly_plan?utm_campaign=rb_11_24_20&utm_medium=email&utm_source=therebel
When a nation sends its young men into battle what does that nation think may occur? Death, perhaps? The death of either their own or of the enemy, perhaps?
When men go into battle they take their morals with them. If a nation such as Australia, has taught their men as children that they are only an accident of nature, evolution, and that there is no real purpose in life and there is no life after death, Heaven or Hell, and no matter what they do in life will not be judged by a higher authority than another man, God the Creator and Judge, what morals do you think that person may or may not have?
However, the Left who push evolution as a fact and that there is no afterlife when a person stands before the Creator have another purpose as well and that is to deflate the defense force and those contemplating joining. The Left’s purpose is to soften the nation’s defense for, I think, they are working towards China’s ultimate takeover. Yes, China! The Left are totally committed to a Marxist/Communist/Socialist takeover of the West including Australia. The sad part is so many Australian politicians have been a part of this takeover via taking money from China for political favors. Take some time to follow the political money. It’s not the soldier that needs to be investigated but POLITICIANS! So, here is what the Leftist/Marxist online New Daily has to say on the matter.
‘The “disturbing conduct” alleged in a wide-ranging report into war crimes in Afghanistan could see Australian soldiers jailed or have their medals stripped, with the government appointing a special investigator.
“This will be difficult and hard news for Australians,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said, warning people to prepare for “brutal truths”.
A year-long investigation by the Inspector-General of the Australian Defence Force (IGADF) will be made public next week, with some members of the armed services potentially facing federal prosecution for alleged conduct on the battlefield.’https://thenewdaily.com.au/news/2020/11/13/australian-soldiers-war-crime-probe/?utm_source=Adestra&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Morning%20News%20-%2020201113
It seems the world is getting wackier with each day and the USA’s 2020 election is one case in point. However, as the Left seek to destroy all sense of anything and everything John Mackay and Dr. Diane Eager answer the question “Is there a real definition of man and woman in a world that wants fluid gender?”
‘The easy bit is that the word “man” refers to an adult human male, and a “woman” is an adult female human. But can we actually give a testable, provable meaning to the traditional words “male” and “female”, or are they just roles allocated for convenience which can be abandoned as life evolves?
This is a battle being fought hardest in school classrooms to conquer the minds of the next generation. Consider the following actual events:
A woman teacher was caught up in a staff room debate about who could use the girls’ toilets and change rooms at her schools. A transgender supporter claimed ‘We can be whatever gender we choose and therefore we must be allowed to use whichever toilet suits our choice’. The frustrated lady teacher retorted: “Why don’t we just look between their legs – that should settle it!”
Second event – November – 2020! Two Christian parents spend several frustrating hours with a Government school principal and deputy. What’s the problem? Their daughter has reported to them that their school class has been ordered to call one boy she.
Mum and dad ask why the school is forcing their child to lie. ‘But that’s just your opinion’ retorts the deputy. ‘If the boy feels he’s a girl we have to accept that. It’s the law!’
But my wife and I are both scientists, state the parents. We can give you a testable definition of what a male or female is. All the creatures we work with have very observable features of male and female. The boy is the one with the testicles who makes sperm. And in every case they are provably different from the females who make ova and babies. And we humans are the same.
So why are you teaching my daughter to lie? And why are you lying about this yourselves? Did you intend to tell us as parents that you had ordered the class to call this boy a girl?
“No,” replied the increasingly embarrassed principal, while a very emphatic “NO!” was uttered by an obvious radical feminist deputy. Government policy is that we must accept whatever gender the students feel they are, and this student feels they are female no matter what your opinion is.
The result? Despite being long-term participants and active supporters on school councils, both parents advise the Principal that because you’re teaching our children to lie and you are lying about it, our children are out of here today – not this afternoon, but right now!
Of course, the school authorities are rightly concerned about what they should tell students’ parents, especially other Christian parents in the school.
How should we react when atheist governments and education are actually lying about gender and sex? How do we define boy or girl, male or female, man or woman? And can we go deeper than that and have a meaningful scientific and legally enforceable definition?
Male and Female
Let’s start with the obvious differences between what we traditionally call gender. Being male or female, whether infant or adult, is provably determined by a person’s chromosomes, and indicated by the resulting reproductive systems and naturally produced hormones. At different stages of a person’s life reproductive systems and related hormonally induced changes to body structures will go through maturation and degenerative processes, but an individual remains either male or female throughout his or her life, from conception, through childhood and adulthood, to death.
The chromosomes that determine whether a person is male and female are named X and Y. A male has an X and a Y, usually written as XY, a female has two Xs, usually written as XX. These are inherited at conception and remain in every cell in the body, with one notable exception for each sex* (see below) for the rest of a person’s life.
Therefore, it doesn’t matter what manipulation is done to the body or mind after conception – a person is male or female throughout life. It doesn’t matter what bits they may get cut off or added on, or any alterations caused by the chosen addition of alternative sex hormones or by blocking their own hormones. In spite of efforts by transgender activists to drive a wedge between gender and sex, neither gender nor sex are determined by an individual’s choice, or by feelings, by externally administered drugs or hormones, or by social acceptance of someone’s choice.
*The only cells in the body that do not have the XY or XX chromosome identity are the reproductive cells, i.e. sperm in a male and ova (eggs) in a female. When these cells are formed the chromosomes are separated and each sex cell gets one of the sex chromosomes. Therefore, sperm will have either an X or a Y, ova will have one of two X’s. But such cells are still male or female, as only males can produce sperm and only females can produce ova?
Where Did Male and Female Come From?
Each human being is formed from the union of one sperm, carrying an X or a Y chromosome, and one ovum, carrying an X chromosome. An X carrying sperm will give rise to a female when its X combines with the X in the ovum. Y carrying sperm give rise to a male when it combines with the X in the ovum. This process can be traced back through the generations to the first human beings – Adam and Eve. Sex is not something you can evolve. It has to be right first time or you die out!
Adam was created male. Therefore, he had an X and a Y chromosome. Eve was created from tissue taken from Adam. All the components needed to make a woman were already in Adam. To make a female from male tissue God took out the Y chromosome and duplicated an X. From then on human beings have reproduced by the process described above.
Adam and Eve were created individually by God. Adam was made from “dust of the ground” i.e. raw materials, and Eve was made from tissue taken from Adam. They were not derived from any other living creature. Human beings are unique and separate creations, and therefore it is irrelevant if other living things, such as fish or plants, can change sex in certain circumstances.
So, theistic evolutionists take note: Those who want to believe in evolution but defend God’s word on men and women, and marriage, will find themselves on shaky ground. If evolution is true, human ancestry goes back to creatures with no distinct sexes and/or interchangeable sexes, and those who oppose God’s rules can claim that blurring the sexes is just part of the natural world, and Christians should not impose their views on it.
It is time to humbly accept that in the beginning God created humans male and female just like He said He did.’https://askjohnmackay.com/mand-woman-is-there-a-real-definition-of-man-and-woman-in-a-world-that-wants-fluid-gender/
Malcolm Turnbull and Kevin Rudd have NO shame. They were worse than the worse as PM’s of Australia and are way past their due date but they still have the audacity to show their faces on television. However, the Leftist/Marxist ABC must promote the two for otherwise they wouldn’t have a sounding board for their climate scam Marxist views. Therefore, ‘At a time of record levels of government spending and intrusion, it is perhaps timely to consider the words of Ludwig von Mises:
The worst evils which mankind has ever had to endure were inflicted by bad governments.
And speaking of bad governments and evil, this morning on ABC Insiders, former prime ministers Turnbull and Rudd where the guests of honour.
These are two very special men. Very special. In different times, their inability to see their reflections in a mirror might be considered a sign of vampirism. Both men are certain that the failures of their governments and their ultimate removals have apparently nothing to do with their unusual combination of administrative incompetence and political narcissism. Apparently, their failures were all a result of the evil Murdoch Empire.
Their performance on Insiders this morning was a sight to behold. Turnbull beautifully verballed David Speers, suggesting that Speers left Sky News to get away from News Corp. Turnbull even suggested that The Guardian Australian is unequivocally a small l liberal publication and bringing it to Australia was one of the best things he did.
Rudd continued to advocate for his Royal Commission into the “Murdoch media“ and, of course, Turnbull supported Rudd. Irrelevant is the fact that the total operating costs of News in Australia would almost certainly be less than $200 million per annum compared to the $1 billion the ABC spends and there is no proposal to investigate the ABC.
Their proposed solutions by the way? Crickets.
Well, here’s my solution. Both are exceptionally wealth men. Exceptionally. Let them pool their non-insignificant capital and start their own media enterprise. Between them, they could easily put together $100 million in seed funding. Rudd can write the gossip column. Turnbull the business pages. And Turnbull’s son, he can be the editor in chief.
Don’t like the News Corp product, sell your own. But that would require courage, skin in the game and managerial effectiveness and the very fact that they sit whining on the ABC suggests a lack thereof.
The opening to this piece was a quote from Ludwig von Mises. An equally valuable bookend are the words of Thomas Sowell:
What socialism, fascism and other ideologies of the left have in common is an assumption that some very wise people-like themselves-need to take decisions out of the hands of lesser people, like the rest of us, and impose those decisions by government fiat.
Malcolm and Kevin. Please do Australia a favour. Go away.’https://spectator.com.au/2020/11/malcolm-and-kevin-dont-you-have-homes-to-go-to-several-homes/
Hillsdale Dialogues is a weekly broadcast with nationally syndicated radio host Hugh Hewitt and a professor from Hillsdale Colege. This broadcast is concerning the shutdown and Israel. It should be noted that Hillsdale College refuses every penny of state and federal funding—even indirectly in the form of student grants or loans. That is only one BIG difference between Hillsdale and other schools.
There is always a price to be paid for standing for truth!
‘No government entity has the authority to license, commission, accredit, and certify any Christian ministry–unless said groups go hat in hand asking for state or federal funds. A license is permission to do what would be illegal without it. No preacher should ever permit the government to license his work. Even in other professions, a license does not guarantee quality but does provide control and income for the government. In some states, a license is required to use your truck to haul dirt, rocks, etc.; to shampoo hair in a beauty shop; to own a gun; to teach school, and on and on and on.
It is obvious that a medical doctor’s license does not protect patients from sexual abuse or unnecessary medical procedures; nor protect students from incompetent or predatory teachers; nor guarantee a reasonable-looking haircut from barbers; nor assure a fair, reasonable defense by attorneys; nor, but then you get the idea.
In the mid-400s, Theodosius II, Eastern Roman Emperor from 408 to 450, made it a punitive offense for a man to teach the public without a state license; and soon such licenses were given only to “Christians.” Now that the Church was in control, they decided to keep the unbelievers out of teaching by requiring permission from the church-controlled government.
As early as 1534, the English clergy were forbidden to preach without a government license and John Bunyan got caught up in government machinery that tried to control preachers and teachers.
John Bunyan has been one of my major heroes all my adult life. But, I recently discovered that John, after spending more than 12 years in jail for preaching the Gospel, finally accepted a license to preach! While that was wrong in my opinion, it does not diminish Bunyan’s courageous stand against King Charles II and the king’s demand that John and other dissidents (those who disagree) not preach the Gospel. Preaching the Gospel was very costly to all except the Church of England preachers and even they did not have total freedom of conscience since they had to obey the King and Parliament regarding religious matters.
In the seventeenth century, all religious groups hated the Roman Catholics who like all dissidents met in homes. Everyone in England and Europe remembered the Inquisition where “the papists” mangled, mauled, and murdered hundreds of thousands of “heretics.” All the dissidents and the Church of England preachers agreed–“No popery, no popery!” Of course, everyone should have had freedom of conscience–Catholics, Anglicans, Quakers, Baptists, Presbyterians, and even the religious weirdos. Moreover, all the groups were against the Baptists because of their insistence on baptism by emersion of only those who had trusted Christ as Savior. No babies under any circumstance.
King Charles I had feuded, fussed, and fought with Parliament and ended up being beheaded in 1649 followed by Oliver Cromwell becoming Lord Protector until his death in 1658. Although a strict Puritan, Cromwell provided religious freedom for everyone. Into this religious mix, mess, and maelstrom walked two men who would make their mark on English history–a preacher and a king.
When Charles II restored the monarchy in 1660, he reneged on his promise of religious freedom he had made in his Declaration of Breda a few weeks earlier (a mistake I hope Trump does not make). The people had experienced about twenty years of freedom of worship but now nonconformist (Baptist, Presbyterian, Independent, etc.) services were banned, and ministers were rounded up and arrested. The major hero in this religious mix was a born-again tinker, a Baptist preacher named John Bunyan. The resultant clash was titanic.
Soon after his conversion, Bunyan began preaching in 1655 and was arrested in 1660 while preaching in an unapproved religious meeting (conventicle). He served a prison stretch until 1672 when he was released with other dissidents. He was jailed again for a few months in 1675.
The Act of Uniformity 1662 required every preacher to adhere to and accept the doctrine of the Church of England or leave the country. That included all preachers of the Church of England (many of them Puritans) and all the various independent groups. Everyone had to attend the Church of England regularly with fines, banishment, and then hanging for a third offense. (That would sure help one decide whether or not to sleep in on Sunday morning!) The act required all clergymen to use the Book of Common Prayer; consequently, about 2,000 Puritan clergymen were forced to resign. Some of them recanted while others became dissident preachers, others got other employment.
As to unbiblical ceremonies in the Church of England, Puritans (and all dissidents) objected to kneeling during the Lord’s Supper, the observation of holy days, the use of the surplice (outer garment worn by priests), and the signing of the cross in baptism.
The noose got tighter when the Conventicle Act 1664 became law forbidding more than five people, not members of the same family, to meet for worship. This was followed the next year by the Five Mile Act that forbade any preacher from coming within five miles of any incorporated town or their former place of abode. The noose was now tight and the preachers were standing on a very fragile, shaky platform.
The Baptists, Presbyterians, Congregationalists, and other dissidents from the Church of England continued to meet surreptitiously in homes, barns, and abandoned buildings while the Quakers very bravely continued to meet openly. This was a time of persecution without parallel as Protestants (Anglicans) persecuted Protestants (Puritans and dissidents).
However, Charles and the Anglicans did not have it easy in hounding, hunting, and harassing the dissidents. In 1668, the Bawdy House Riots proved that sane citizens recognized the insanity of persecution of decent people. London crowds attacked brothels as they protested against a government which had tolerated prostitution while persecuting devout, principled preachers!
Present day parallels are numerous as the state asserts its authority to control religious colleges, license Christian counsellors, certify Christian teachers, regulate school curriculum, prohibit anti-homosexual regulations, restrict military chaplains, etc.
The modern state is as arrogant, asinine, and aggressive as King Charles II was and it’s time for principled Christians to resist to the point of jail.’ http://donboys.cstnews.com/government-cannot-license-a-ministry-john-bunyan-was-wrong
