Why are honour killings morally unjustified?

I’m going to go out on a massive limb today and partially defend Uthman Badar. Not because I like him, or agree with him, but because his recently proposed speech, “Honour killings are morally justified”, raises some very serious questions about the state of our society. Let’s look at the facts. He agreed to give this speech. There was a general emotional uproar against the Hizb ut Tahrir spokesman. And then the speech was canned. But...

The Mother’s Day Massacre

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. And today is my birthday. This is a happy coincidence. It means, in our family, that we get to celebrate the mother and the father in the same weekend. It’s really the way it should be everywhere. Mums are important. And so are Dads. But they are much more important when viewed as a whole, not as separate parts. Families function when they are both together, working as a loving team. Yet our society...

Peter Tatchell & why the paedophiles love him

There are some unpleasant things in this life. One of them is getting ‘tweeted’ by the prominent British homosexual activist, Peter Tatchell, at 2am in the morning. Just like this morning. Somehow, Peter got drawn into my recent post about the Sydney Leather Pride Association’s web page and the ‘educational’ information it provided on how to signal a desire to have sex with boys. These guys marched at the Mardi Gras....

First up I would like to thank the Q-Society for organising this important event. It has been fantastic to meet with so many...

An open letter to the Premier of Victoria

Today I have the great pleasure of publishing a tremendously powerful open letter to the Victorian Premier, Denis Napthine. It relates to Victoria’s atrocious abortion laws that have legalised the murder of probably over 1 million children. ***** Dear Mr Napthine I was delighted when you took over as Premier because of your principled stance in voting against the 2008 abortion bill. What led you to make a 180 degree U-turn?...

Google Afghanistan (and find child marriage (in Australia))

Forty Australian soldiers have given their lives in Afghanistan. Their mission, as stated on the International Security Assistance Force webpage, was to support the Government of Afghanistan. For those of an inquiring mind, let’s dive into some Google magic and see what we can dig up on this government. After all, it has been deemed worthy enough to justify the loss of Australian blood. Probably the best place to start is by searching...

Bishop of Wagga, Gerard Hanna, speaks up

Those who read these pages would certainly know that I have been very critical of Catholic bishops for their silence on political issues that touch faith and morals, or for their deliberately ambiguous statements. However, when they do act as the Shepherds of the Flock, I will support them 100 per cent. We need strong bishops much more than strong politicians. The Bishop of Wagga, Gerard Hanna, has spoken up. He’s told the media...

I’m sorry Archbishop Porteous, but you are wrong

One of the reasons we have bishops is to explain the wisdom of the Catholic Church. Not that you would know this from their recent public pronouncements. Because going by these, you could be forgiven for thinking that they preferred instead to hide or obscure the Church’s clear cut teachings. First we had Bishop Putney from Townsville tell us that each and every family had a gay member. Then he waxed lyrical on the ABC for some time...

Liberals & Abortion: Crawling forward & leaping backwards

I’m the first to admit that I’m not the greatest fan of the Liberal Party. But I’m also happy to acknowledge when they get it right. And over the weekend, the Victorian branch of the Liberal Party got it right. At the State Council, members voted to repeal provisions of the Victorian abortion laws that prevent doctors from exercising their conscience. These anti-choice laws were put in by the Labor party in its dying days of...
