John Lord

In a lifelong experience of following politics I have, until now, never witnessed children being horse traded, and senators being blackmailed, for the passing of legislation. In this case to reintroduce Temporary Protection Visas.

It looks as though Immigration Minister Scott Morrison (and the senators) have taken the yes side on the ageless Christian ethical dilemma ‘’Does the end justify the means’’

It is a fascination to me as to why people assume that religion has some form of monopoly on morality. And even worse, they pretend to speak on Gods behalf in dispensing it.

Morrison said.

“I will not take moral lectures from Bill Shorten or Sarah Hanson-Young when it comes to border protection on that or any other issues,’’

Abbott said.

“So this is a win for Australia, it’s also a win for humanitarian values, it’s a win for human decency’’

Jesus said.

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”

We are all wired for decency and conscience with or without religion. Some understand it better than others illustrated by either what we do or don’t do. By our mercy and compassion or deficiency in it.

Morrison like many of the Cabinet are serious practicing Christians who interpret God’s word to fit snugly with their political ideology. They easily accommodate policy with their own definition of scripture, justifying their immorality to themselves. An evil in itself.

As someone who spent many years in a church environment similar to Morrison s (now an open-minded atheist) I can assure the reader that there are many who think like Morrison. They worship their politics and religion without demarcation. In doing so they believe that telling the truth isn’t necessarily in their best interests.

This government seems intent on imposing its own particular form of Christianity on an unsuspecting population. And I might add, one that is completely at odds with current Papal uttering on social inequality

    I don’t like IT – I like your giving it oxygen, Gerard.
    TROWC is simply … simply … obscene. I don’t understand how people can BE like that.

    Well said, Gerard. I’m not proud of what is happening to so many helpless people, including little children.

    A MOST IMMORAL ACT it is. People like John Lord are well versed in opening people’s eyes to the dilemma we’re in. Thanks for publishing this post, Gerard. I copied and published it too.

    The passing of this legislation and the methods applied to ram it through, made me sick. A new appalling low. How they sleep at night, let alone turn up to church and feel justifiably righteous, is beyond me.

    The tide may be turning in Australia. Abbott is way down in the polls and the Government seems chaotic at the moment with Ministers seemingly blaming each other for the bad polling – Victorian Labor win in State election last weekend – South Aust. seat of Fisher by-election yesterday probably going to Labor (previously Conservative Independant) – in Queensland, Conservative Premier Newman’s seat looking good for Labor’s Kate Jones in 2015! Now Labor has to come up with some strong decent policies! I wonder if they can do it. It is no good them winning anything if they don’t have the policies, but so far they sound “wishy-washy”. I still believe the Greens are the only Party with any morals. Morrison and Abbott make a joke of the word “Christianity” .

    I think John Lord has it not quite right Gerard. I question whether Morrison is a serious practising Christian. I think he’s like many of his party; he attends Church he needs to be seen, what he does or doesn’t do in the Church isn’t the point.

    I doubt he understands the Parable of the Good Samaritan or much else of Christ’s teachings.

    The history of religious practice is littered with acts that are immoral by anyone judgement. I think these two have rationalised their views by assuming that half the human race are not human, so don’t count.
