I believe in democracy generally, but it can easily become a morally corrupt tyranny without an objective compass by which to navigate our laws and policies. So from where can we consistently derive such a moral compass?
This stoush between journo’s and the AFP is merely an old-fashioned legal disagreement where one party emotionally claims their source is a “whistle blower” and the other claims the source was an illegal leak.
“I plan to vote for Trump again in 2020. The contrasts are just too extreme. I am conscience-bound to vote against the radical left and to vote for the causes that Trump will uphold. Everything else pales in comparison.”

Professor Frances Arnold was awarded the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 2018 but retracted a subsequent paper as the peer-reviewed science has not been reproducible. There is growing alarm about challenges in irreproducible research which contradicts the common assertion that “the science is settled” on any research topic.

This story is a satirical mirror of an absurd story about an LGBTIQAX+ activist feeling oppressed by a Christian Uber driver which was published on “10 daily” 15 Dec 2019.
The bigots aren’t those Christians daring to dissent from status quo ideas, but those LGBTIQAX+ activists refusing to tolerate Christians who hold a different opinion to themselves.
It breaks my heart to see a moment of unfettered pagan idolatry opening the Australian Catholic Youth Festival in Perth in recent days, and we have to talk about it to avoid repeating this horrible mistake.
Facebook seems to have appointed itself & its bored hamsters the sole arbiters of Truth, and has taken exception to today’s quote, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
Australian schools are failing in maths, science & reading and have been getting worse for 20 years – but more money has never been the solution. What real action can we take to resolve this real emergency?
Pirate Pete believes it is wrong for someone to publicly disagree with his beliefs about marriage; that to do so is not an exercise in honesty or civility, but evidence of hateful prejudice and bigoted phobia. Hmmm.
The anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is terribly inconvenient to the abortion industry
The abortion industry discriminates against people based on the status of their birth having not yet occurred; even though science is unambiguous about their membership of the human family…

Evidence abounds that extreme environmentalists are creating the largest ground fuel loads seen since humans first inhabited this continent by obstructing responsible forest and vegetation management.
SBS News mysteriously loses their article about bushfires having almost nothing to do with climate change

There is an inherent danger of wandering beyond Biblical authority when preaching absolute positions on environmental policy. Don’t pretend there’s no debate when God’s Word is not authoritative on it.
In a rare moment of feminist honesty but typical nastiness, Jane Caro says she doesn’t notice or care about the babies conceived, “potential humans”, who were never born.
