FIRST COOPERS, NOW THIS from Lyle Shelton, Australian Christian Lobby

“It has taken less than a week for Coopers Brewery to go from supporting the Bible Society to supporting Australian Marriage Equality. And the tactics of the same-sex marriage lobby have been on full display for all Australians to see.
By now we all ought to be able to recite the same-sex marriage playbook from memory – bullying, intimidation, boycotts and threats. That’s how the same-sex marriage lobby hopes to win over the hearts and minds of Australians.

But Coopers was just the tip of the iceberg
“Today the next step in the campaign to change Australia’s marriage laws was revealed and it is every bit as ugly as the whole Coopers saga…  Coopers was just the beginning.
In today’s Australian we learn that corporate giants like QANTAS have been ‘lobbying’ senior executives to sign an open letter to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull pressuring him to break his election commitment on marriage.

THERE IS A ‘REALITY’ THAT WE ARE IGNORING TO OUR PERIL

In “The Essential Christian Heritage” Eric D. Butler (1971) reminded his readers that “Western civilisation (was) correctly described as a Christian civilisation… it was the Christian teaching that man is a special creature made in God’s image, which gave the human person a significance unknown outside Western Europe.  Now man saw himself as part of a type of cosmic spiritual drama and felt he had the power to shape history…”

BUT “… The modern concept of the Rule of Law is far removed from the concept of English Common Law… first we must ask “whose law?”  Like every other human system, a system of law must, if the Christian view of reality is to be accepted, serve the individual, to ensure that his natural rights are protected, that his sovereignty as a free and responsible individual is ensured…

THE OLD MARXISTS INFILTRATED THE CHURCHES LONG AGO

“He can’t be serious” were my first thoughts to the On Line article “A Christian church” by Peter Bowden 22/2/2017.

He writes: “The dictionaries will tell you that the word Christian has two meanings: One is a follower of the Christian Church, the second is having qualities usually associated with Christians, especially those of decency, kindness, and fairness. This is an article about the second type of Christian. Or at least a second type of Christian Church.

WE WONDER WILL CORY BERNARDI TAKE NOTE? from Canadian Wallace Klinck


Thanks for this latest report, Cory.
Interesting to learn that you have terminated your past political allegiance and decided to pursue a new approach. 
You express concern about the accumulated financial debt burden bearing upon Australian society.  Precisely what do you suggest as a solution to this problem?  Under the existing financial system you will be entirely unable to improve this situation or even to halt the relentless growth of that debt. 

All nations operate essentially under the Keynesian system of debt finance.  This system generates financial costs at an ever greater rate than it distributes effective consumer income.  Under existing rules there is no alternative whatsoever but to incur more debt in a futile attempt to compensate for this growing shortage of effective income.  Because this deficiency increases as industry modernizes, and non-labour costs increase relative to labour costs, the financial problem intensifies with every increase in productive efficiency achieved through increasingly refined real capital enhanced by improving technology.

The "sustainability" ploy from CFACT

Ref: https://www.cfact.org/2017/02/09/the-hidden-agendas-of-sustainability-illusions/
Environmental radicals are circling the wagons to defend “global warming” as a rationale to grant them economic and political power, but they're having a tough time. Their scientific case is collapsing.
What's a Green to do? Pivot to an eco-campaign that defies any objective measure of objectivity whatsoever: "Sustainability." 
The "sustainability" ploy has been working its way through the UN since the first Rio "Earth Summit" in 1992 (we know, CFACT was there), was written into the UN's "Agenda 21" document, and is today quietly but steadily working its way through state and local government halls near you.

CFACT senior policy analyst Paul Driessen posted substantial details at CFACT.org.
Here are a few samples of what the Greens are saying about their utopian eco-cause of “sustainability”:
