It's Just Not Cricket

Written by

The Sydney cricket test has begun.  Virtually without a crowd.  Those there are all wearing masks, because they are compulsory in Sydney.  Covid summer madness has hit the Premier State, where a mere two Covid deaths have occurred since 1 September 2020.

The Year That Was

Written by

2020 was the very worst of times.  A year not to savour but to regret.  What was thought inconceivable a mere twelve months ago is now real.  It can never be inconceivable again.  Barring a miracle or concerted political action by those who resent our loss of freedom, a dystopian future surely awaits us all.

Deadwood Justice

Written by

It was late 2019, and a coincidence of events saw Australian police forces, especially Victoria Police, under the pump.  2020 only got worse for our bungling coppers.  First there was the humiliation of the Pell case outcome, then the unconscionable thuggery of VicPol against its own citizenry, beamed around the world, and finally, the McMurdo excoriation.  Will things change?  Will the rogue force south of the Murray be set to rights?  Will anyone be punished?  This article was written in December 2019, and is published here now for the first time.

The Persecution of George Pell

Written by

The editor of Quadrant magazine, Keith Windschuttle, as written a cracker of a book on the George Pell case.  It is much needed, in order to provide some balance in the face of the various tirades previously published by sworn enemies of Cardinal Pell's.  It should be read both by those who already know the case well, and by those who do not.

It is not only juries that sometimes get things wrong, especially in cases of alleged historical sex abuse.  Judges get it wrong, too.  Just look at the South Australian case of Catholic priest Fr John Fleming.  This case amply demonstrates the need for judicial system reform.

Many Catholics (and High Church Anglicans) are beyond dismayed at the vandalising of their liturgies by modernist and post-modernist clergy who refuse simply to "say the black and do the red".  It is time that rock-star pastors realised the damage they have done to sacred traditions and to the beauty of God-shaped and God-oriented worship, and abandoned their ego-driven ways.

"You Are Forbidden From Getting Help"

Written by

We live in shark infested waters, and Daniel Andrews is a shark.  Never assume it is safe to go into the surf in these waters, as Andrews' proposed legislation banning "conversion therapy" shows.
