OK, so here we have a tale of two churches. In one place a new church was launched: a cannabis church to be specific. The state moved in rather quickly and put an end to that foolishness. In another place
I refer here to the hyper emotionalism and cloudy thinking of way too many Christians in the case of two convicted criminals who met their end recently in Indonesia. I certainly did not plan to say anything further on all
Does showing compassion make one a hypocrite? No, of course not – well, at least not necessarily. But I have seen far too many people just recently going on and on about compassion and mercy in a rather hypocritical fashion,
Just when I think things cannot get any more bizarre, debauched and moronic, I keep finding myself being surprised – big time. You think the amount of moonbattery has reached the outer limits, and then something comes along and makes
There are many arguments given by leftists, civil libertarians and others for the harm minimisation policies and the liberalisation of drug laws. They are heard over and over again, and these mantras tend to be taken as gospel truth simply
I continue with more claims made by the drug legalisation and/or decriminalisation crowd, showing how their oft-heard claims really do not stack up to the evidence. Here then are four more such claims.
The general drift of both state and federal policy on the drug issue – as on a number of other social issues – is what is known as harm minimisation or harm reduction. Simply described, this approach says that social
Here I examine more problems with the harm minimisation approach to drug use. I finished Part One with the claim that this is a failed approach. Before exploring further reasons, let me speak to this a bit more.
In the US two states have recently decriminalised non-medical marijuana use: Colorado and Washington. US President Obama added fuel to the fire by saying, “I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.” And in Australia the Queensland Premier is
Harm minimisation advocates often claim that the distribution of clean syringes will help protect addicts from infectious diseases and protect the community at large. Thus they are often promoting things like heroin injecting rooms, needle-exchange programs, and the like. But
The so-called harm-minimisation crowd is at it again. Recently we have had yet another call for medically-supervised heroin injecting rooms in Australia. One such proposal is for Footscray in Melbourne’s west. The claim is that this will save lives and
Most people by now would have heard of the rather bizarre proposal by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to ban every sweetened drink over 16 ounces sold in public venues. In a case of the Nanny State getting bigger britches,
To be honest, I am getting tired of listening to so-called believers making cheap excuses for their sin. They seem more intent on justifying their selfish and sinful lifestyle than in walking with Jesus in the only way he told
Two recent articles about teen crime in Victoria make for disturbing reading. But of more concern is that most of the “experts” seem to have no idea what the real cause is. On August 1 the Herald Sun ran with
As the West sinks into terminal decline, it becomes a fulltime job simply to chronicle each new case of madness and idiocy. The West is becoming expert at self-destruction, and the examples of its deterioration are the stuff of daily
