We are in an election season. Parliament rose for the last time yesterday (praise God: no more euthanasia, abortion, and other progressive abominations were passed). The Prime Minister -- on the same day we were told to stock up on masks in case the virus she fears crosses the Tasman and infects our community -- said her government was one of Kindness.
A woman accused of breaching lockdown rules has been pinned to the ground and arrested by police in Hoppers Crossing.
Footage of the dramatic arrest, released on social media, shows the woman facedown on the footpath, while being restrained by three police officers.
Her daughter, who filmed the incident, is heard saying ‘she’s in pain, she said she’s in pain’, while being asked to provide identification by another officer off-camera.
The footage is believed to have been uploaded to social media by a friend of the pair, along with images of the bruising the woman allegedly received from the arrest.
The video has been watched more than 8000 times on Facebook.
“She has two terrible bruises from (the police officer’s) actions, apart from minor bruises that resulted from her arrest.”
Victoria Police said the mother and daughter were arrested and fined $1625 each after breaching coronavirus stay-at-home rules by leaving home for not one of the four permitted reasons.
As I noted last night: we are no longer a free people. We have no rights. This is called kindness by our rulers.
Yeah, right. Under he watch we have a euthanasia referendum, and there is now abortion on demand to 20 weeks, and legal to birth. She is hoping that if the lie is big enough, people will believe. Hey, it worked with climate change.
17 When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Is this you, you troubler of Israel?” 18 He said, “I have not troubled Israel, but you and your father’s house have, because you have forsaken the commandments of the Lord and you have followed the Baals. 19 Now then send and gather to me all Israel at Mount Carmel, together with 450 prophets of Baal and 400 prophets of the Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”
The anonymous blog remains the modern samizdat: where we can think about truth, God, beauty, honour, and recite old poetry. Our rulers call this wrongthink. They blame the Church and Christ for their troubles. They are the sons and Daughters of Ahab. Their kindness is to the worship of evil, and they hate the good.
24 Now a Jew named Apollos, an Alexandrian by birth, an eloquent man, came to Ephesus; and he was mighty in the Scriptures. 25 This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he was speaking and teaching accurately the things concerning Jesus, being acquainted only with the baptism of John; 26 and he began to speak out boldly in the synagogue. But when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately. 27 And when he wanted to go across to Achaia, the brethren encouraged him and wrote to the disciples to welcome him; and when he had arrived, he greatly helped those who had believed through grace, 28 for he powerfully refuted the Jews in public, demonstrating by the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.
The first thought I have is that we should seek allies where we find them. The days of doctrinal purity are no longer: every church has been infested by those who will not listen to correct doctrine and instead preach the big lies of this time. By the consequences of their ministry and their policies you can judge them.
The second thought (only two: the coffee has not kicked in) is that we should continue to have a certain skepticism about the pronouncements made by those in authority. We should mistrust consensus. There is nothing wrong with seeing the truth, though it troubles the authorities. Stacy McCain, commenting on yet more politically correct evolutionary fantasy, writes.
Very interesting, as a theory.
My early education in scientific skepticism requires me to point out that, however much evidence there is for humans originating “1.2 million years ago” in “tropical rain forests,” this is nevertheless a speculative theory, rather than a fact proven by science. My own belief — and it is merely a belief, which I cannot prove — is that human life began approximately 10,000 years ago. Thus, the racial differences among mankind are of rather recent origin and, as best as I can determine from the Bible, originated with Noah’s sons Shem, Ham and Japheth.
Of course, it is impossible to prove my belief, but my observation of human differences (one of my five grandchildren is playing with his toys about 10 feet from my desk as I write this) suggests that if, like Noah, you had three sons married to three daughters-in-law, there might be tremendous variation in the appearances of your grandchildren. If these three families of your descendants went their separate ways — Noah’s sons repopulated the entire earth — it strikes me that within a few hundred years there might be remarkable differences between your remote descendants. Whatever the evidence may be for Dr. Ward’s assertion that “all modern humans share a common ancestor who lived around 200,000 years ago in Africa,” I do not believe that such a lengthy amount of time was necessary for the “evolution” of racial differences.
Well, I suppose we must agree to disagree on this topic, but I must insist on pointing out the dangers inherent in the demand for a scientific “consensus” in areas of inquiry where our knowledge is imperfect. Totalitarian regimes in the 20th century sought to impose an “official” view of science, which led to Lysenkoism in the Soviet Union and to the Holocaust in Nazi Germany. We should hope that old-fashioned skepticism and intellectual freedom can make a comeback.
We are limited in our knowledge. We cannot predict what will happen next. We cannot save our nations from virus or depression or war: we can do what is needed to stop such, but that requires moral courage and tribal fortitude. Our leaders lack both, and consider that we trouble their nations.
It is not God that is doing this, but them. Do not be aligned with them.
