Please look at the link and make the need for prayer known. He has been battered by the press and this will be un-relenting. Physical danger cannot be dismissed. There will, no doubt, be those who report him to Medical Board.

Two contrasting “victories” for women

Amendment rejection: “victory for women” Emily’s List.
Amendment acceptance: “victory for women” in Arizona.
It is hard to understand the opposition of Emily’s List women to the proposed amendments. They all made sense. Surely one would want to anaesthetize a late-term baby about to have its brain sucked out by a partial birth abortion. Surely for a 14 year-old schoolgirl one would want to look at the possibility of abuse and the reporting of same. Such opposition I think will be thought very strange in years to come.

News Release: Liberty of Conscience

Infringement of conscience is a serious challenge facing modern medicine. Medical codes of conduct must never be subject to degradation by government. Governments may legislate to permit certain practices or procedures but governments must never force doctors to violate their conscience by compulsory engagement in such practices or procedures.”

The Chronicle of Shame – understanding the times and knowing what to do.

• Does it matter that governments legislate for evil?
• Does it matter if governments compel evil?
• Are these matters “defining issues” as to how I should vote for politicians or parties that have supported these matters? (And, if not, then what is a defining issue?)
• Is there a role for this church and for the body of Christ as a whole?
• Will these matters make a difference in my ordinary way of life? Will they make any difference as to how I spend my spare time?
• Will they make a difference as to my future directions, even occupation?

One More Thing – The Victorian Pathway to a New Dark Age

how dare we repeat history by excluding any rights of the unborn child at risk of abortion. To thumb our noses at the intelligent dedication of the people and nations that formulated the Universal Declaration is an astonishing action of ignorance and irresponsibility and – yes – selfish arrogance.

Killing is never a solution for misery.

Dr Philip Nitschke also argues that anyone, even – get this – troubled teens, should have the right to kill themselves:
…all people qualify, not just those with the training, knowledge, or resources to find out how to “give away” their life. And someone needs to provide this knowledge, training, or recourse necessary to anyone who wants it, including the depressed, the elderly bereaved, the troubled teen.

Where was the Christian Vote in the Federal Election?

So how do you define a “defining issue”?

Defining issues are wrongs actually brought into being by government introduced legislation as opposed to matters occurring or happening in our world. With respect to things that are happening we may argue about contributory negligence and about what might be required in legislation to rectify that and also to prevent it. But what we cannot argue about is when governments actually legislate to permit wrong. What we cannot argue about is when governments legislate to permit evil. And especially what we cannot argue about is when governments legislate to compel evil.

The voice of the church in the public square: is there such a thing as a Christian vote?

Statement: In Victoria we have unrestricted late-term abortion, unrestricted eugenic selection of anything regarded as imperfect through to birth, and legal compulsion of doctors to act against their conscience and their
professional judgment – all this significantly due to the influence of Emily’s List of which our PM Julia Gillard is a founder.

Question: If it is absolutely clear that a political party leader is deliberately leading the country in an un-ethical and anti-God direction, can we trust that leader or that party in other non-God areas?

A challenge to Pastors and Leaders – will we guide our people this election?

Our PM: “pro-choice”, not pro-abortion. A founder of Emily’s List.

PM Julia Gillard has declared herself, in response to the accusation that she is pro-abortion, to be “pro-choice”. But what does that mean? Is it not really – for the majority of pro-choice activists – pro-abortion?
