Casualties

Ever wonder where your taxes go?

Much goes on suppressing the Catholic religion.

Listen.

Christians must seek to ensure that young people know about God and his laws. That’s why we have Catholic schools.

Christians must seek to participate in practical and loving care of the poor, sick, dying – hence Catholic hospitals and welfare agencies.

But . . . .

. . . the taxes paid by Catholics are increasingly devoted to abolishing exactly those activities.

The day comes when any homosexual failing to land a job that he/she sought in a Catholic school, hospital etc., will be able drag the employer endlessly through equal-opportunity tribunals, kangaroo courts etc.

The Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations, in a recent submission to an Attorney-General’s inquiry, called for “removal of religious exemptions to anti-discrimination laws on the basis of sexuality – particularly in relation to employment and the provision of health and community services . . . .”

AFAO and numerous like-minded bodies receive taxpayer funding – your money — via the Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA).

Jesus Christ taught that God’s will regarding “sexuality” is that “a man shall leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife and the two shall become one flesh.”

Will the Church have to “correct” his words?

Perhaps to “a man shall leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife and/or same-sex partner . . . .”

Blasphemous?

Stupid?

There’s a real war on in culturesville.

Wars have casualties.

My reply:

“Wars have casualties…”

The Threat Direct.

Don’t worry, Dr Jago, we know all about casualties.

From a recent Queensland study:

Victims of Physical assault without a weapon:
32 per cent of gay males
15 per cent of females
46 per cent transgender male to females
45 per cent transgender female to males

Victims of Physical attack with a weapon, knife, bottle or stone:
12 per cent of gay males
6 per cent of lesbian females
38 per cent transgender male to females
9 per cent transgender female to males
12 per cent other

We’re aware of the Director of the Life, Marriage & Family Centre, Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney, testifying in his official capacity that Intersex people are “mentally incompetent” to contract a marriage, no matter what PhDs they might possess. Attacks come in all shapes and forms.

Casualties? Yes, we know about them. Every name read out on the Transgender Day of Remembrance, over 100 this year, shot, tortured, eviscerated, even burnt at the stake. We know that this year, the toll will be higher, and then next year, likely higher still.

Casualties don’t scare us, your threat is meaningless.

Ah, Arnold Jago. A hateful, loathesome, punchline-less joke of a man. Even in the Catholic community he's a known quantity. The advantage of his rants is that he's always happy to sign them, so you know what you're getting. If there are people out there who know his name and actually listen to what he says with any emotion other than disgust, then I'll be very surprised indeed. Or maybe dismayed.

Threats do scare me!

... but will not deter me from claiming "my ownness".

I would tend to agree that attacks come in all shapes and forms. They will continue so long as humans have free thought, ergo, not every human is an advocate.
