‘Former banking boss Andrew Thorburn believes his fleeting appointment as CEO of the Essendon AFL club lasted just 30-hours because his “personal Christian faith is not tolerated or permitted in the public square, at least by some and perhaps by many.”
He was forced to step down from the Essendon position because of his role as a church chairman.
In a statement the former head of the NAB said: “I was being required to compromise beyond a level that my conscience allowed,”
He added that: “Despite my own leadership record, within hours of my appointment being announced, the media and leaders of our community had spoken. They made it clear that my Christian faith and my association with a Church are unacceptable in our culture if you wish to hold a leadership position in society.”
“This grieves me greatly – though not just for myself, but for our society overall. I believe we are poorer for the loss of our great freedoms of thought, conscience and belief that made for a truly diverse, just and respectful community.”
“My faith is central to who I am. Since coming to faith in Jesus 20 years ago, I have seen profound change in my life, and I believe God has made me a better husband, father, and friend. It has also helped me become a better leader. That is because at the centre of my faith is the belief that you should create a community and care for people, because they are created by and loved by God and have a deep intrinsic value.”
His position became untenable for the club when sermons opposing abortion and homosexuality from pastors were found on Mr. Thorburn’s City on a Hill church website.
James Morrow writes in The Daily Telegraph: “Thorburn’s church, like pretty much every other church that claims to follow the Bible, says that marriage is between a man and a woman and that sex outside marriage – whether gay or straight – is a sin.”
“This has been the position, incidentally, of the three monotheistic religions – Christianity, Judaism, and Islam – since time immemorial.”
While the greater Essendon club community welcomed Mr. Thorburn’s resignation, a leading Melbourne Christian is planning to quit the club.
Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne Peter Comsensoli admits he no longer feels welcome as an Essendon supporter.
National Director of the Australian Christian Lobby Wendy Francis says: “The Essendon Football Club promotes themselves as safe, inclusive, tolerant, diverse and welcoming, but their hypocrisy has been starkly exposed.”
“Their so called tolerance and diversity, however, is only extended to those who know better than to question the latest woke manifesto regarding sexuality, gender identity, and even abortion.”
“Too bad if you adhere to a biblical concept of sexual behaviour.”
“Christians and all Australians will be watching the federal Labor government carefully to see how they fulfill their promise to introduce legislation outlawing religious discrimination in this term of government.”
James Morrow observes it’s only Christians who are made to pay the price for their beliefs.
He writes in The Daily Telegraph that back in January, Greater Western Sydney AFLW player Haneen Zreika refused to wear a “pride” round jumper because it conflicted with her Islamic beliefs.
She was allowed to simply sit out the game without penalty or punishment because her circumstances were “complex”.
“Contrast this with the way players for the NRL’s Manly Sea Eagles were dragged for days because they said their Christian beliefs forbade them from promoting what they believed were sinful practices via ‘pride’ jerseys.”
“The double standard is blatant.”
James Morrow concludes: “This is about about whether one is allowed to have a differing opinion on questions of morality, framed through the prism of one and only one particular religion, and still be allowed in public life.”
“A tolerant society allows people their private beliefs.”’https://vision.org.au/news/christian-ceo-forced-out-of-afl-club/?vgo_ee=MTlFAJenI%2FlOzZ%2BHWFq1nDpxdzkQNl9LgdxZ9pnzLRY%3D
All too many political figures are against what used to be the normal such as marriage between one man and one woman. The Victorian Premier, Dan Andrews, is such a person.
‘Dan Andrews wants you and your views about marriage and life cancelled.
He thinks you are a bigot.
In an extraordinary attack on the pro-life and pro-marriage views of millions of Australians of all faiths and none, the Victorian Premier said these views were “bigotry”.
He was commenting on the appointment of Andrew Thorburn as the Chief Executive Officer of the Essendon Australian Football Club.
Thorburn’s “crime” is that, like millions of Australians, he attends a church that is pro-life and believes that marriage is for heterosexuals.
His church’s views are identical to those of millions of mosque-going Muslims and church-going Christians.
Yet Andrews thinks these Australians are all “bigots”.
“Those views are absolutely appalling. I don’t support those views; that kind of intolerance, that kind of hatred, bigotry is just wrong,” Andrews said.
“All of you know my views on these things. Those sort of attitudes are simply wrong, and to dress that up as anything other than bigotry is just obviously false.”
Andrews and the intolerant left are hell bent on punishing those who do not comply with their social views.
Port Phillips deputy mayor Tim Baxter, a prominent Essendon member, quit the club over the Thorburn’s appointment and urged a wider boycott.
Baxter said Thorburn should not be in a leadership position.
Thorburn is chair of the church, City on a Hill.
The persecution of socially conservative beliefs has escalated since the same-sex marriage debate in 2017 and the change in law, despite promises that there would be tolerance of traditional views.
It appears Thorburn is being discriminated against for his church’s religious beliefs.
Federal Labor under Prime Minister Anthony Albanese says it will legislate to protect religious freedom but it is hard to see this happening when senior Labor leaders like Andrews simply dismisses social values based on religion as “bigotry”.’https://familyfirstparty.org.au/pro-life-pro-marriage-you-are-a-bigot-says-dan-andrews%ef%bf%bc/
Many of the states in Australia are moving further and further from the truth given in the Word of God. In fact there is a Satanic hatred toward God and His Word! This hatred is now seen in Christian schools being attacked by the state governments.
One of the problems is that many if not most of these schools accept state funds which puts them in a compromising position.
‘A teacher from one of the 1,000 Australian schools feeding kids chips made out of powdered crickets asks, ‘Do crickets taste good?’ The student nods and the teacher adds, ‘Yeah. Let’s eat some more crickets…!’
Bugs are on the menu again… Why does the World Economic Forum have such a weird obsession with making our kids eat them?
First, let me make something very clear: Bugs are not food. You should not eat bugs. They are insects. They belong on the ground, or in the air, or wherever the heck they live. They do not belong on your dinner plate.
With that out of the way, we can move on with the insanity being encouraged by unhinged scientists and allies of the World Economic Forum.
There is no doubt that the World Economic Forum likes bugs, but only if other people are eating them. Their reasoning for this hypocrisy is what you’d expect from people who always seem to be plotting to take over the planet and shape it into a full-blown socialist ‘Utopia’ (which is one of the greatest oxymorons ever heard).
You will eat bugs to stop Climate Change.
Climate Change is nothing more than an exaggeration of the weather. The weather is not going to kill you unless you have the misfortune to get struck by lightning, hit on the head by a hailstone, or caught in a flood. Chances are, a warm summer’s night is not going to act like the local axe murderer. Bad energy policy is a different matter. You might freeze to death if you have no heating in your home, which, ironically, the same bug-pushers now want to take away. Switzerland has threatened to throw people in prison for three years if they turn up their heating to 19 degrees Celsius (around 66 Fahrenheit)!
But back to the bugs.
You might be wondering – how will eating bugs change the weather?
The official World Economic Forum line is that eating meat is accelerating the effects of Climate Change. Therefore, to fix ‘the climate’ humans need to reduce their consumption of meat and replace it with a climate-friendly substitute. There are a few on offer, but the favourite is insect protein.
These agenda-driven bureaucrats are doing their best to promote insect-gorging as being ‘good’ for you.
If you believe the hype, they’re nutritious, full of protein, and still very tasty. And there is a great range of bugs out there for you to try. You could eat crickets, or grind them up into a powder to replace plain white flour or self-raising flour (what’s wrong with normal flour?). You could even attempt some highly nutritious cockroach milk on your cereal. Maybe you enjoy a bit of seasoning on your meals? Well, instead of getting out the salt and pepper, grab some lightly-acidic ants instead. You could even top those meals off with some protein-packed mealworms.
No, I’m not kidding. This is seriously what they want you to be eating.
In recent weeks, it was revealed that canteens in 1,000 Australian schools have started selling cricket chips produced by the company Circle Harvest. Students are being encouraged to eat these chips, which are laced with cricket protein, and are told by teachers that they are healthy.
In a video from one school of three young students eating these chips, a teacher can be heard off camera saying: ‘Chips are great, aren’t they? And these chips are even better because they think they’re better for you!’
Another teacher is then heard saying: ‘Did you know they’re made from little insects?’ When one of the students replies ‘no’, the teacher goes on to say ‘Can you taste it? No, you can’t. It tastes like normal CCs doesn’t it?’
It is clear that these people are doing everything they can to normalise eating bugs from a young age. As we all know by now, indoctrination starts early.
If you have children in an Australian school, please tell them that eating bugs is not normal and that they should steer clear of these products.
Meanwhile, a couple of scientists in Hee Cho and Hyeyoung Park decided to experiment with different ways of cooking mealworms, seasoning them with amino acids, onion powder, garlic powder, and mushroom powder to create a ‘meaty’ flavour so that they would be more appetising to the general public. Bugs should never be appetising. They should always be disgusting and never consumed.
These researchers found that heating mealworms with sugar produced a popular meaty flavour after having each of the methods of cooking the insects evaluated by a group of volunteers who taste-tested the bugs.
The two scientists stated that, ‘Insect farming requires just a fraction of the land, water, and feed in comparison to traditional livestock farming,’ even going so far as to label insects as ‘superfoods’.
If you’re looking for a nutritious drink, look no further than cockroach milk. This is another so-called superfood with claims that it is three times as nutritious as cow’s milk, buffalo milk, and even human breast milk. It is apparently a complete source of protein, containing all nine amino acids, and is being touted as key to feeding our growing population into the future despite scientists saying it is likely infeasible. For those of us who are not insane, this probably isn’t the answer to a growing population.
Western Civilisation needs to stop for a moment. Scientists are feeding insects to our children while celebrities produce propaganda videos to support the narrative.
In one video from Vanity Fair, Nicole Kidman consumed insects, stating at the start of the video, ‘I’m here to reveal my hidden talent eating micro livestock.’
She went on to claim, ‘Two billion people in the world eat bugs, and I’m one of them.’
Note the term being used to describe insects – ‘micro livestock’. People pushing insects as food, particularly as an alternative to meat, are using this term to make it sound like eating insects is not out of the ordinary, essentially equating it to consuming livestock.
But it isn’t the same as consuming products from livestock. Not only is the consumption of bugs not normal and completely unappetising, it could easily lead to the spread of parasites. Insects are not meant to be consumed by human beings because they are a great vector for parasites.
For example, crickets and cockroaches can often carry horsehair worms, which, if ingested by humans, can cause quite a bit of stomach discomfort and illness. Crickets can also spread salmonella and E. coli, which often cause significant illness in humans or are even fatal for vulnerable individuals. Mealworms carry diseases as they feed on dying and dead birds. They are also home to Hymenolepis diminuta, otherwise known as rat tapeworm, which can infect humans through ingestion of a carrier.
To date there have only been rare instances of this parasite infecting humans, given it only occurs through accidental ingestion. But if mealworms are turned into a common delicacy, then you can expect more and more people contracting this tapeworm.
Of most concern, however, is that insects contain a polymer called chitin. When ingested, it can get into the lungs. A build-up of this polymer can cause significant health issues. A study on chitin and its effects on inflammatory and immune responses noted the following:
Mammalians are potential hosts for chitin-containing protozoa, fungi, arthropods, and nematodes; however, mammalians themselves do not synthesize chitin and thus it is considered as a potential target for recognition by mammalian immune system. Chitin is sensed primarily in the lungs or gut where it activates a variety of innate and adaptive immune cells. Chitin induces cytokine production, leukocyte recruitment, and alternative macrophage activation.
In other words, the human body was not created to process chitin. There is a reason the human diet does not contain it. It can cause inflammation in the body, and can even lead to respiratory illnesses and cancer. And insects contain high amounts of it.
So, as much as the World Economic Forum and other members of the bureaucracy want you to consume bugs, don’t do it. They might claim it is for the benefit of the world, that it is to fix ‘Climate Change’, but do you really think they are going to sit there eating bugs like they want the rest of us to do? Absolutely not. They will still be feasting on succulent juicy steaks, ribs, burgers, and the like while the rest of us are made to crunch on crickets and sip on cockroach milk.
Remember, bugs are not food. So if you find yourself eyeing off an insect and thinking to yourself ‘hey, that looks tasty’, don’t try to pick it up and eat it. Get some help. ‘https://spectator.com.au/2022/09/1000-australian-schools-are-fed-insects/

‘Because both Victoria and the ACT have now introduced laws that threaten parents with jail time if they don’t affirm the biological sex of their children.
And now NSW independent MP Alex Greenwich wants to follow Dan Andrews’ lead… by introducing a similar “equality” bill in NSW that will:
- Jail parents who try to prevent their children from mutilating their healthy bodies.
- Give males an open door to women’s bathrooms and sports.
- Override religious exemptions (so schools can’t adhere to religious teachings of sexuality and gender).
Premier Dan Andrews has put all Australians at risk with his dangerous “change or suppression” legislation.’
These politicians are EVIL!!!!!

‘More than 16,000 Australian households and businesses in the southern Australian state of Victoria were without power on Wednesday morning after wild winds lashed the state overnight.
AusNet Services reported the most unplanned outages, with more than 15,000 as of about 9 a.m. The outages were most significant to the east of Melbourne and in the state’s far southeast.
Victoria’s State Emergency Service have also said they have fielded 254 calls for help in the 12 hours to 8.20 a.m on Wednesday, with 214 for fallen trees.
“Take care while out on the road this morning, and watch out for fallen trees, branches and powerlines,” the organisation warned social media followers.

The following video is typical of the left and their agenda to silence any voice contrary to their own. Take note that the language used in the video unveils the character of some of those interviewed.
In Australia if you questioned the Nazi tactics of the state governments you were often treated with contempt and punished by the police. That’s why ‘Nick Patterson has vowed to take his ‘fight against police corruption’ all the way.
The former gym owner was jailed for 29 days after confronting photo of him appearing to punch a police officer made headlines across the nation.
While the mainstream media aired the perfectly-timed image to portray Patterson in a negative light, police bodycam footage later corroborated Patterson’s version of events.
He was released on harsh bail conditions and charged by police.
Victoria Police later even threatened me with jail if Rebel News didn’t remove the bodycam footage from our website.
Now with a 10-day trial set to begin on November 14, Patterson said he is more committed than ever to seeking justice.
“I’ve held a very strong position against the government’s mandates from the very beginning through the whole Covid scenario and I’ve been targeted for that reason,” he said.
“I really believe that I’ve been put in this position for a reason because I won’t back down and I’ll go all the way with this and I want to change the system.”
Patterson said that he is confident that, with the public behind him, he has an extremely strong case and wants his case to set a precedent.
“I can prove their systemic failure. I can prove that the police have been writing false statements to put people in jail, they did that to me, I can prove that they’ve used bail as a way to silence political dissenters,” he said.
“I can prove it, there’s no way that they can deny this.
“They’re still trying to charge me which … it’s ridiculous to pursue those charges because there’s no evidence of them.”‘ https://www.rebelnews.com/protester_stands_his_ground_against_corrupt_cops?
