Islamic Jihad in Sydney

Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ while stabbing innocent citizens in Sydney. A woman is dead and others are injured after a man went on a stabbing rampage in downtown Sydney – all the while yelling “Allahu Akbar”. But as is almost always the case, much of the media is not mentioning this latter fact. And just as bad, the authorities are telling us that this has nothing to do with terrorism.

The High Court of Australia today upheld as “reasonable”, and not unconstitutional, the decision of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship to dismiss an employee who had made anonymous political comments about migration matters and government policies, contrary to various codes of conduct. The case provides interesting insights into the operation of the implied constitutional freedom of political communication. Many will see similarities with the dismissal of footballer Israel Folau for comments he shared about the Bible’s view of morality, but as we will see, while somewhat factually similar, the cases raise quite different issues.

A group of women from New South Wales have started a campaign to draw attention to abortion law reform in the state. But what they don't seem to understand is that these days, only pro-lifers get arrested.

Begging the question on the abortion bill

In the last week, a major debate has restarted in New South Wales about abortion. Most of the commentary however, begs the question and dances around the central issue. The real issue, is not doctors conscience rights, certifying consultants, or whether carrying out an abortion at 39 weeks is too late. It is not a political debate about whether the Berejiklian Government is riding roughshod over the Liberal Party's voter base. The real debate is over whether killing unborn humans as acceptable.

"If the proponents of this bill are relying on Dr Sood's conviction as a justification for this bill, they are relying on a very poor case indeed. They are relying upon an instance of appalling mistreatment of a patient.”

NSW abortion legislation

Instead of reacting to alarmist abstraction like other state governments have done before, NSW has an opportunity to consider the real needs of women with regard to abortion legislation and make a more mature and informed decision.

It is not uncommon to find popular assertions , in relation to the legal treatment of transgender persons, that the law requires that a person who asserts they are of a different gender to their biological sex, be allowed to use bathrooms set aside for their chosen gender, or that they have a “right” to be addressed by the pronoun corresponding to that gender. In this post I want to point out that it seems quite arguable that the law in most of Australia does not have this effect.

Religious Freedom Campaign from the ICS

Many organisations around Australia are attempting to pressure the Morrison government into legislating to protect religious freedom. Of special concern is the attempt by the Greens and the ALP to remove 'religious exemptions' in anti-discrimination law. The ICS (Institute for Civil Society) has released a video and briefing paper to provide resources so that we can become more informed and also reach out to politicians.

Who's the Nazi now?

Pro-lifers grow accustomed to all sorts of insults, the most unimaginative being 'Fascist' or 'Nazi.' But this pro-abortion writer takes the prize for being the biggest tyrant of all when he applauds abortion for wiping out the 'undesirables'.

Tuesday’s Sydney Morning Herald featured an astoundingly dishonest opinion piece ironically titled, “Miserable, purposeful lies should not be part of our politics.” Her own “miserable, purposeful lies” deserve to be dismantled logically and methodically.
