Lent & Lieutenant Colonel McGregor

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday. It was the start of 40 days of fasting and penance in the lead up to Easter. Catholics will well know that on Ash Wednesday they receive the ashes of last year’s blessed palms signed in the shape of a cross on the foreheads. While the priest does this, he says: “Memento, homo, quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris” That’s Latin for “Remember, man, that thou art dust, and...

Press Release: Defence to terminate commission of Christian officer

The Chief of Defence Force has written to me that he intends to terminate my commission in the Army Reserve. I have been given until 5 February, 2014, to respond. I issued the following press release a short time ago. ***** Defence: Christian officer to have commission terminated   Bernard Gaynor faces termination of his Army Commission for objecting to Defence support of lewd, public displays of sexual behaviour and insults against...

Feminists: Men make better women

Let’s not beat around the bush. Feminism is dead. At least, that’s the only rational explanation for the bizarre decision by the Daily Life to include a man in its list of Australia’s top 20 women of 2013. For those who haven’t come across the Daily Life before, it’s a Fairfax website that styles itself as Australia’s leading source of feminist news, views and information.  As you can probably well imagine, its articles are a...

Human Rights Hypocrisy

Mark your diary for 10 December. It’s just around the corner and, no doubt, is an eagerly awaited day for the ABC’s Jane Hutcheon. That’s because she has been nominated for a human rights award in the prestigious television category by the Australian Human Rights Commission. And it might just be presented to her then. Jolly good for Jane. The citation reads: Jane Hutcheon, Interview with Cate McGregor, One plus One, ABC TV. This...

Losing confidence in the Army: a wife’s perspective

Today’s guest post is from an ‘Army Wife in Brisbane’. Her name is withheld for obvious reasons. If it was released her husband may well end up losing his job. That is a sad state of affairs in any business, but when it infects Defence, an organisation supposedly charged with protecting Australia’s freedom, it is particularly scandalous. I do not publish this post lightly. But it is important to realise that...

More illogical gems from the gay marriage crowd

I wrote recently about the lack of logic possessed by those who support homosexual marriage and was accused of ranting. I was surprised at the response, but I should not have been. Accusations of ‘ranting’ are no substitute for detailed debate, but they do substitute as arguments for those who are unable to articulately defend a position. And, as anyone who has dared stick their head above the parapet to defend marriage will know, the...

A Christian defence of McGregor

It might seem strange, but there is a Christian defence for LTCOL McGregor’s actions. It’s just not a Christian defence, if you get my drift. It’s the Christian Kerr defence. He’s a journalist at The Australian. His defence is a pretty simple one. And by simple, I don’t mean that it is based on any simple truth. It is based on a simple mind with a limited ability to reason. It’s goal is to protect...

Questions raised about LTCOL McGregor’s interference in my career

As readers of this site are well aware, Lieutenant Colonel McGregor is the most senior transgender officer in the Army. That’s a dubious achievement at the best of times. And, as you will see below, there are serious questions about the level of influence, all of it illegal, that McGregor has over future decisions about my career. These questions should be immediately answered by the Chief of Army and McGregor’s conduct...

Some jokers are real

“Daddy, why is that Army man wearing lipstick?” It’s the kind of question that every parent dreads from their children. It’s impossible to give any positive, truthful explanation for such a ridiculous situation. So it’s best to try and avoid circumstances that may lead to these awkward but innocent inquires in the first place. Consequently, when the ABC decided to televise an interview with a cross-dressing Army officer wearing makeup...
