Just Throw Them All in Jail

Law can do one of three things: it can prohibit something, it can permit something, or it can promote something. We see the full progression here in the case of homosexuality. Until just recently almost all cultures prohibited homosexuality, realising

More Cases of Creeping Sharia

More Derelict Leadership

Feb 26, 2011

In theory political leadership should have something to do with looking after the national interest and promoting the common good. This unfortunately is not always the case. Indeed, many times it is quite the opposite. In the past few days

PC Nut Case #59,359

Another Green Brain Drain

Feb 11, 2011

Surely we have here the winner of the “Stupidest Statement of the Year” contest. While many other contenders could be mentioned, this remark has to take the prize. And the fact that it comes from a politician should surprise no

When Rights Talk Goes Completely Mad

Dec 20, 2010

Just when you thought you had seen it all, something comes along so absolutely mind-boggling that you sit in stunned disbelief. Indeed, this episode is so shocking that this article is now the fifth I have written today. My family

Thoughts About Wikileaks and Egoleaks

Now that lesbian Penny Wong has challenged her own leader and declared her support for same-sex marriage, I would like to ask her and all other such supporters why she does not really believe in full marriage equality. I would
