Federal Election Special

Here's a round-up of resources to help you make your vote count at the May 18th Federal Election.

 For Catholics, the historic cathedral's most valuable item is not a golden artefact or a prized antique; even Jesus' venerable Crown of Thorns pales into insignificance when compared to this true treasure.

Folau's Foolish Wisdom

Israel Folau has lost his job (or come very close to it) for quoting Scripture on social media. That statement should make us think long and hard about the state of religious freedom in Australia. The football star has exposed a huge divide that exists among the Australian public by preaching basic Christian doctrine, but his comments are a challenge to all of us to defend the Truth, no matter what the cost.

Australians will be going to the polls in May, with only two possible outcomes: a Liberal government, headed by Scott Morrison, which will be ostensibly 'conservative' or 'right-wing', or a Labor government, a 'progressive' or 'left-wing' one, led by Bill Shorten. As with last year's Viktorian state election, the watchword among Christians, especially pro-lifer Christians, is "keep Labor out." However, in that election, despite intese lobbying, Labor stayed in power and significantly, enjoyed a swing in its favour across most of the state.

Fishing for a Cardinal

John Macaulay is a former altar server at Melbourne’s St Patrick’s Cathedral, scene of the alleged sexual assault of two choirboys by Cardinal George Pell. In this interview with Raymond Arroyo of EWTN, John speaks about the implausibility of the alleged crimes, based on both his experience of Cathedral Mass protocols and also his being an eye-witness during the court proceedings that saw Cardinal Pell convicted. John and Raymond open with a discussion about ‘Operation Tethering’, the Victorian Police investigation that began years before there were any allegations of malfeasance on the part of the Cardinal.

Four pro-life victories you may have missed

While this may not qualify as a ‘victory’ in the sense that it’s the result of a targeted campaign by pro-lifers, it certainly is a victory for life, as Australian mothers will now have more restricted access to dangerous tele-med abortions. The harmful drugs used in the medical abortion protocol have led to serious side-effects and even death among women worldwide. And, in yet another example of the abortion industry’s dishonest approach, women who access medical abortions are not told that reversal is available.

Labor pledges to abort Australia's future

‘Safe, legal and rare’ is out the window – now it’s free abortions for everyone. Labor’s Deputy Leader, Tanya Plibersek, has given details of a $9 million National Sexual and Reproductive Health Strategy, aimed at increasing abortion services throughout Australia, should her party be elected this year.

Highly sexualised school curriculum, identical to Victoria's notorious Safe-Schools programme, has been found in a Catholic high school in Perth.

It's evident that among those who identify as 'pro-life' there exists a great variety of positions. At one end of the spectrum are those who defend life from the moment of conception, while also condemning contraception, and at the other end, there are those who agree with abortion in certain circumstances such as rape or severe foetal abnormality.

On the 46th anniversary of Roe v Wade- that infamous law which legalised abortion in the US - the state of New York expanded its own abortion legislation with the 'Reproductive Health Act'. According to LifeSiteNews:

The bill declares that “Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry the pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to have an abortion,” erases the state’s recognition of preborn babies older than 24 weeks as potential homicide victims, removes abortion from the penal code entirely, and allows licensed health practitioners other than full doctors to commit abortions.

New York's Governor, Andrew Cuomo, called the new law a 'a historic victory for New Yorkers and our progressive values…' and directed that the state's landmarks be lit up in pink to celebrate the occasion. Jonathon van Maren, of The Bridgehead, wrote what many were thinking: ' ... it seems as if New York’s landmarks are lit up to commemorate the passing of untold nameless ones.'
