Letting Catholic priests into Australia was a mistake

November 24, 2016

Centuries of failed migration policy must not be repeated

Warning: you are now entering a politically incorrect zone. Australia is in the middle of an honest discussion, fuelled by Immigration Minister Peter Dutton. Previously, Australia’s immigration policy has been based on a complex, rather muddled process where immigrants from all over the world joined the so-called “most successful and harmonious multicultural nation in the world”.

But that’s a phrase our prime minister hasn’t used it for some time now. Things change. Our nation is not counting its immigration successes, but its immigration failures. Chief among those is the introduction of Lebanese Muslims. Mr Dutton says that allowing them to flee the Lebanese Civil War to our shores was a “mistake”. And what better way to quantify that mistake than crime statistics. In question time, Dutton pointed out that, of 33 recent terrorism charges, 22 were against people of Lebanese Muslim background.

    Did Dutton’s anti-Muslim spray breach section 18C?

    “Did Dutton’s anti-Muslim spray breach section 18C?”

    Dunno. If so, is truth a defence?

    Only if it’s the truth. Current evidence would be required

    I did read about how Victoria’s second longest serving Premier would have been kicked out under muttons racist rant

    Is there ‘truth’. or just decades old musings?

    Some of the old Union Bashers get it. How low CAN we go?

    Dutton’s attack on Fraser shows how low our politicians are willing to go on refugees

    And yes, every time Labor capitulate, we know the new breed of Union Bashers will ratchet it down ever further. So I’m glad Shorten “appears” to have stopped caving ….. for now.

    “I did read about how Victoria’s second longest serving Premier would have been kicked out under muttons racist rant”

    Which couldn’t be more wrong.

    How many, Catholic Priests have actually been sent down* for pedophilia?

    *and will they go up?

    Meanwhile this bloke certainly knew he was breaking the law … always an arrogant bastard …

    Former high-profile criminologist Paul Wilson will spend six months behind bars after committing “brazen” sexual offences on a young girl in the 1970s.

    Wilson, 75, was on Wednesday convicted of four charges of indecent treatment of a child under the age of 12 relating to sexual acts he committed at his Brisbane riverside home 40 years ago.

    He was sentenced in the Brisbane District court on Thursday to 18 months jail, suspended after six months.

    Prosecutor Philip McCarthy had asked for two years with a custodial component, saying that Wilson’s conduct was “at times brazen”.

    And this gets to the heart of the issue … and oft demonstrated right here …

    Children from religious families are less kind and more punitive than those from non-religious households, according to a new study.

    Academics from seven universities across the world studied Christian, Muslim and non-religious children to test the relationship between religion and morality.

    They found that religious belief is a negative influence on children’s altruism.

    I find the title of this article highly amusing, post-ironic & topical!

    Hello and nice to see you HD.

    Thankyou, Tom.

    It just now occurred to me, that the aborigines’ best interests (and isn’t that how we’re encouraged to measure ourselves?), would have been better realised by ‘not letting the rest of the world into straya’.

    Conservatives loved ‘progression’ when it came down to the difference between spears & muskets.

    What a vague conundrum.

Go on say something, you'll feel better...
