Way back in February a car driven by an allegedly drunk driver in Sydney’s northern suburbs ran off the road and hit numbers of children.
The funerals were held on 9 February for the three children of the Abdallah family – Antong 13, Angelina 12 and Sienna 8. The following day the funeral for their cousin Veranigu 11.
This News.com article details the funerals, their families’ Christian faith, Veranigu’s brother playing the drums in the funeral procession, the heartache, the four parents were photographed together and the sobbing.
Three things to comment
There are a thousand and one rules and regulations - regarding road use, footpaths, blocking road access, crowds and the like. The State was wise to ignore them all as the mourners gathered.
Not a problem,
These rules and regulations are for the usual run-of-day - not applied for extra-ordinary circumstances such as these funerals The same applies for marches, sit-downs, road blockages, and the like
In recent years anything Christian has had the rule of thumb excruciatingly investigated, whereas for others, anything goes. This is no level playing field. Some groups go an extra mile of protest and bring in a range of laws to prevent anything Christian happen and in January, a protest again having Drag Queens teach children about their social mores, resulted in the young man leading the protest committing suicide.
A second thing
When the same sex marriage legislation the being debated in Parliament, both the then Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and the then Leader of the Opposition Bill Shorten, stated with emphasis, (read Hansard) – this Bill was to allow two people who loved each other to marry – full stop.
I concurred with that.
But it did not stop there. It has changed the entire society. The 1.2% of actual homosexual people (and supported by another 10%) have used every aspect of law to entrench a homosexual agenda in every area of life. Courts have been co-opted to enforce to such directions.
Vocalising anything against all this, such as Margaret Court’s free speech, have been curtailed by Tennis Australia and many others, let alone Israel Falau in his dramas with Rugby Australia. So much for anything said in Parliament.
Not a problem to blast Christians with a different view. Free speech in Australia is a nonsense it seems.
Discrimination against Christians
Everything I have stated above has been published many times before – in both secular and Christian media.
Now comes the tricky business of writing into the legislature a Bill that highlights discrimination against Christians – in effect pitting one form of discrimination against another where the courts will determine such.
What this will do is - a level playing field.
Then in recent weeks mass rallies have occurred in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and elsewhere - all against social distancing rules and mass gathering rules - it was quite okay, it was the lefties at the helm. The quiet Australians were bewildered and very annoyed.
Not a problem to Government.
