It’s the Queen’s birthday so we today have the Queen’s Birthday Honours List. Various prominent Australians are recognised and honoured on this list. However, it seems far too often to be more like a PC honours list. It seems to focus on all the usual suspects who are politically correct, left of centre, and hostile to faith, life, family, and freedom.
Let’s look at just a few of this year’s winners. Joan Kirner, former Victorian Premier and a noted founder of Emily’s List (the radical pro-abortion group), got the nod. This hardcore feminist and pro-abortionist is not someone I would wish to honour. With 20,000 unborn babies killed every year in Victoria, this is nothing to celebrate.
Then we have Gareth Evans, a former Cabinet Minister in the Hawke and Keating governments (1983 to 1996). He is famous for many things, but one thing certainly sticks in my mind. He was reported some years ago as stating that children wanted a right to sexual freedom and education and “protection from the influence of Christianity” (Sydney Morning Herald, May 7, 1976, p. 11).
And last but not least, there is Peter Singer, the ethicist and former Monash University professor who now lectures at Princeton University in the US. Here we have one of the most diabolical ethicists of our time, someone who ardently champions not only abortion and euthanasia, but infanticide as well.
Yes you heard me right – he is in complete favour of killing newborn babies. And here he gets this high honour. I have of course written about him many times before. Let me just cite a few paragraphs from some of my earlier articles:
“And in the September 16  issue of The Spectator he again argues for infanticide, stating that we need to determine whether new-born babies should be allowed to continue living: ‘we should have a ceremony a month after birth, at which the infant is admitted to the community’.
“Such barbaric anti-life views are the inevitable result of one who has rejected the source of all life, the Creator God. Singer’s atheism drives him to a position that many in Nazi Germany would have been quite comfortable with.”
“As he notoriously wrote with Helga Kuhse in the 1985 volume, Should the Baby Live?: ‘We do not think new-born infants have an inherent right to life’. Or as he wrote in a July 1983 edition of Pediatrics: ‘Species membership in Homo-sapiens is not morally relevant. If we compare a dog or a pig to a severely defective infant, we often find the non-human to have superior capacities’.”
“Princeton University’s Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics, Peter Singer, is on record as stating that there is nothing wrong with having sex with animals, as long as it is consensual, and no harm is done to the animal. The vegetarian and animal rights crusader was not laughed out of court when he wrote this.
“Incredibly, most of his colleagues and fellow academics found nothing unusual or alarming about his remarks. That tells us a lot about where academia in particular and the West in general are at. If world-renowned intellectuals can get away with defending bestiality, then we really are coming to the end of Western civilisation.”
“There you have it: abortion, euthanasia, and even infanticide, with a bit of bestiality thrown in on the side. And this is from a world leading ethicist. No wonder the world’s ethics are so incredibly screwed up. With a guy like this teaching thousands of students a year about these kinds of values, it will be hard not to be heading for moral meltdown big time.”
Does the Queen actually know that guys like this are being honoured in her name? These guys are moral monsters who hate life and hate faith. Not quite what the Queen would normally be known for. When will some decent and truly deserving folks get the salute?
Indeed, just who should have been on this list? I can think of a few names. What about someone like Graham Preston, who is now languishing in jail? In fact, he has been in and out of jail for some years now. So he should be honoured? Yep. You see, his crime is this: he thinks unborn babies should not be slaughtered in the tens of thousands every year in Australia.
I have written him up at least twice already because of his courageous and principled stance, one which is costing him and his family so very dearly. He is a true Australian hero, and we need more like him:
Other names come to mind, including some of the great pro-family, pro-life and pro-faith warriors in Australia, such as Babette Francis, or Fred Nile, or Margaret Court, or David and Ros Phillips, or John Fleming, or David van Gend, or Anna von Marburg, or Bernie Finn, to name a few.
Of course the trouble is, once you start naming names, you can go on for quite some time. Many others could be mentioned. And of course it is possible that one or two of these folks may already have received some honours over the years.
But many more folks like this should be getting such recognition. The real heroes in this nation are largely going unnoticed. They certainly are not on the radar of the MSM and our political and social elites. Yet they are doing more good for this nation than these anti-life and anti-faith activists who got the nod today.
But we expect the world to love its own. It will not acknowledge those who are doing the greatest good for the nation, and for the planet. Indeed, the most worthy recipient of every conceivable honour was spat upon, mocked, tortured, and crucified on a wooden cross.
