‘Christalignment is a false Christian group based out of Melbourne, Australia that has aligned itself with the cult of Bethel Church. Christalignment is well-known for its “Christian” version of tarot card readings and other occult practices. A few years ago, Christalignment made headlines when it held a nude festival and posted a topless “spirit dance” and wrote it off as part of its “evangelism” strategy.
It is utterly abhorrent that the people at Bethel Church and other charismatic communities have taken something as completely and unmistakably occultic as “tarot cards” and sought to disguise it as “Christalignment.” There is no way to make something so heavily steeped in the dark arts seem like a sensible approach to “empowering destiny” and “making better decisions in the future.”’https://disntr.com/2023/01/09/christian-psychic-readings-and-taro-cards-continue-to-grow-in-popularity/
Dan Andrews is the poster boy for incompetence and stupidity.
‘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/

It’s only going to get worse with these climate scammers pushing their snake oil.
‘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.
Strong winds lashed the state into the early hours of the morning, with Mt Hotham recording gusts of 128km/h at about 2.20 a.m and Mt William recording 122km/h at about 12 a.m.’https://www.theepochtimes.com/more-than-16000-australians-without-power-as-winter-storm-causes-chaos_4639509.html
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?
