Fighting the Cultural War in the Trenches.

“Only those who decline to scramble up the career ladder are interesting as human beings. Nothing is more boring than a man with a career.”
― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956

Being a mum in the 21st century of woke idealogues, cultural degenerates and racial propagandists is challenging to say the least. Keenly aware of the cultural and political climate surrounding us, most red-pilled mummas are forced to contend with the evil spirit of this age at a personal and spiritual level. We are in the business of intentionally and consistently countering every nefarious jab at our young, mindless, impressionable off-spring. It’s where the rubber hits the road we are affected and bombarded daily, and not just in the muesli bar aisles of Coles supermarkets where specials beckon us consume endlessly, but in our families, schools and churches.

It’s the middle of the road mummas whose hearts break when we see our children being indoctrinated by leftist dogma, the degenerate entertainment industry and flesh-feeding consumer lifestyle. It’s our children forced to accept feminism, transgendarism and anti-Christianism. What are mums to do but shut up, grin, and bear it, join a political group or lobby group or any group and get in the ring and fight like crazy Karens shouting for people to wake up and take the red pill. There is room for all that and more, in Christ. Until we swallow the Jesus pill, we can never be truly effective or red-pilled.

Having raised seven human beings of my own, I can tell you firsthand, sin lives in the heart of every individual. From the minute these beautiful babes are born, they have needs, sometimes we can fulfil their ever-longing, somewhat parasitical needs, often we cannot. Try as we might to establish near perfect lives for our less than perfect offspring, we fail every time. Well-intentioned mums try desperately to protect our children from the ills of the world to the point of eliminating competition, keeping up with the Jones’ and pandering to their every desire. All the while, unintentionally fuelling the evil onslaught inflicted upon us by the powers that be, through consumerism and hedonism. Wrapping our children in cotton wool, we added to the world’s problems. We fell for the cultural narrative, aspiring to perfectionism through the aesthetically pleasing, luxury Western lifestyle. Personally, I imagined sending my children to childcare and dreamt of ways to earn more, be more and have more. After all, life was for the taking, carpe diem, right? Wrong. Turns out, life and living are more than the endless consumption of goods and services.

Thank God, I woke up! And not “woke” in the liberal sense of the word, I mean spiritually awakened. In Christ. So I spent most of the other half of mumma life purposely resisting the culture. In a desperate attempt to protect our children from the potential degeneracy encroaching upon their lives, we pulled them out of school and home-schooled. We controlled their friendships, social media and entertainment, whilst immersing them deeply in the church, hoping all this would lead to them resisting the culture for themselves and ultimately their salvation. At this point, the closest we have come to achieving these goals are 2 baptisms and constant backsliding. The result of twenty plus years of resistance, censorship, pushback, constant infighting, debates, heartbreak, and pain has resulted in very little on their spiritual and social lives. Sure, I get glimpses of hope in some interactions, but only Christ knows and understands the depths and needs of the human heart.

Society reflects the family, so whilst muesli-brained mummas look out for the specials, we know whom to look for as especially needed to fight back against the spirit of this age. It’s by the power of Christ we make that umpteenth phone call to a teacher regarding inappropriate content in our students’ health curriculum. It’s the love of God which compels our fingers take to the keyboard to write yet another email on why we think a book should be banned from the reading list.

It is we who are forced to watch prayerfully and almost haplessly as our children are tattooed, prostituted, and brainwashed by the cultural imaginary. We endure their eye rolls and their back chatting whilst ignoring their constant requests for the latest gadgets and fads. We are the ones desperately pleading with them to understand the lyrics of the latest song by that new degenerate rap (BS) artist. We caution them to rethink the Tik Tok lives through which they vicariously live, to put on a longer skirt or longer top or just to cover their butts! We beg them not to watch the latest Hollywood blockbuster or at the very least, question the underlying ideology in the movie wherein girls can do anything, and boys cannot. It’s a painstakingly relentless, unthankful task and we are the true minorities in a world too cool for mums like us.

Taken largely for granted, we are the home-makers and home-bakers, the full-time mums working hard in the trenches to keep life traditionally Christian and untainted by the evil all around and within us. We are the ones on our knees, daily praying for their souls, hoping against hope they survive the onslaught of daily evils encroaching upon their half-brained minds. It’s an understatement to say it’s bloody difficult and yes, we cry much, we also laugh much, we could be diagnosed as bipolar. Sometimes we need a drink or two, maybe three. Sometimes we even drink with our adult children, cos what the heck, we’ve tried everything else. We need some fun too.

The culture war has always been fought for in the frontlines by every day, ordinary people, like muesli-brained mummas. Political activism, protests, lobbying govt, campaigning and pinpointing groups to blame can make a whole lot of sense on a superficial level, but the big and deeper picture is in the minutia. Where Black Lives Matter (BLM), Antifa, degenerate Marxist groups and corrupt governments seek to tear down the God-ordained, natural order of things, a White Lives Matter (WLM) movement springs up in opposition.

Each group can identify the source of their oppression, give reasons for their narrative, and justify their existence. These groups, like us mummas, are simply staking out a place that’s ours. A place for our children, a safe place wherein we can all feel a sense of belonging, a place where justice prevails, a place of like-minds, of peace, of goodness. Isn’t that what most people want, peace, love and dare I say, kumbaya. We want to live in communities which reflect ourselves, a place where most people look like us, talk like us and walk like us. We rarely enjoy confrontation and the constant challenge of having to defend our values, beliefs, and existence.

As mummas living in the reality that exists, we continue to speak out daily, lovingly, often angrily. We do so in the hopes of establishing a near perfect utopia. Whilst we may not be in positions of notoriety, infamous for open activism or held up as martyrs in the public domain, it’s the hand that rocks the cradle that rules the world. It is the muesli mummas globally, quietly fighting in the unseen places. Our war is one that is intimately spiritual and heart-breakingly personal. It is in Christ from whence we must launch all our battles and remember always, we may impact a whole generation, but we may only impact one soul. So before going out to battle, take the Jesus pill, wash it down with some water, and with a helping of mumma’s muesli, maybe, just maybe, the battle on all fronts will not only be fruitful and meaningful but eternally victorious.

“Unless the LORD builds the house, they labour in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.”

Our Story.

“…..Preach good tidings to the poor;
to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
To comfort all who mourn,
To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lordthat He may be glorified.”
And they shall rebuild the old ruins,
They shall raise up the former desolations,
And they shall repair the ruined cities,
The desolations of many generations.” (Isa 61:2-4)
 
Formerly a home-schooling family of nine, on a single income and a tight budget, we learned to value everything, rarely threw anything out, and always tried to look for creative ways to recycle. We would practice textiles and design using old clothes, moderately worn out linen or marked down fabric purchased from op-shops.
 
Building on the philosophy which underpinned the quilting industry, our family business was born. Beauty for Ashes has been 20 years in the making but we now intentionally rescue, restore, and re-purpose fabric into reversible, washable, funky bags.
 
Having recently survived a critical life event, our desire is to pay forward our blessings to others who may be or are going through similar situations. As with our philosophy on unwanted fabric, we believe there is no life too far gone or beyond reach. Every life is valuable and with the right tools and support, restoration and transformation is possible.
 
When you purchase the Beauty for Ashes bags, you are in the business of restoring, empowering and re-purposing lives. No two bags are alike and are as unique as each individual’s fingerprint. Made at home, with love, by a loving Australian family.

Racism, the JQ, and the Real Problem with the World.

“The man who has no sense of history, is like a man who has no ears or eyes”
― Adolf Hitler

Anti-Semitic stickers were found early this year on public property in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburb, Caulfield. This soon after the landmark decision to ban the Swastika was declared. Recently, a case against Brighton Secondary College was heard in the Federal Magistrates Court regarding the alleged failure of the college to address bullying and anti-Semitic behavior in the school. North Melbourne draftee, Harry Sheezel, was this week victim to online antisemitic racial abuse. These are just some of many growing incidences which have occurred over recent years, of hostile attempts to intimidate and threaten Australia’s Jewish community.

60 Minutes recently ran an Exposé on the rise of National Socialism in Melbourne, revealing gangs of wannabe Hitlers traipsing across Victorian campgrounds, sigheiling and chanting WW2-style. Whilst they may not be dangerous, maybe just young and misguided, the very idea that these types of people still exist today is enough to horrify anyone, no matter what side the political spectrum.

With the rise of hateful graffiti, verbal abuse, and sometimes physical abuse, to the point Jewish schools require security, it’s little wonder the displaying of the Swastika other than for religious reasons has been criminalized. Granted, it is a bit of an extreme move. Incarcerating individuals for offensive graffiti seems a little hyperbolic, but how else are peaceful people in those communities supposed to fight back without there being an eventual race war. One would think the German defeat in WW2 would have been enough to send a clear message to future generations that their ideology is a lost cause. Hitler lost.

Unfortunately, Hitler left his legacy. This is generally what happens when someone infamous dies before their time. They become almost living legends. Eternalised forever in the hearts and minds of die hard sycophants. Regardless of consequences, they wish to instil fear and shock. Hate fuels them. They believe Jews are the cause of every problem in the world, and the only solution, once and for all, is their extermination. Anonymous on-line trolls and real life serial pests, persistently use mostly words to attack. Abusive, hateful racial slurs, reminding everyone of a bygone era. Here we are in the 21st century, and many have not learned a thing from history. It’s as if they have no eyes or ears.

We have deaf and blind people walking around with big mouths using words that hurt. Words that cut like knives, can leave some deep scars. But are they enough to send people to jail? Personally, I don’t think so. Though it’s not my opinion that matters. All that matters is the reality that exists. Throughout history, we have seen people pay for their words. John the Baptist got his head chopped off for speaking truth to power. Even our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified for speaking truth in love. If truthful, loving words are enough to send people to prison, perhaps hateful words are also enough. Let’s be consistent with the law.

“For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.””

https://bible.com/bible/114/mat.12.37.NKJV

There might be plenty of Jews in power, hell-bent on destroying the world, but there are also many in power of various races and religions. The stickering, abuse and intimidation tactics are targeting ordinary, good Jewish people on the ground, who just want to live in peace without having to be reminded of the time they survived the mass genocide of their own people.

The heart of man is deceitfully wicked. The temptation to blame others for their lot in life can be strong. If one is unhappy, they should look inward, at their communities, at their own people. If they are not growing as a people or even growing spiritually, emotionally and mentally, they are exterminating themselves. In this world, numbers speak volumes. It all boils down to population, and financial power. But many fell for the globalist agenda. The West in particular, love the pretty things offered by these Luciferians, at the cost of their families and communities.

For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

https://www.bible.com/114/1jn.2.16-17.nkjv

Feminism, the sexual revolution, consumerism, entertainment, the “American” dream, and luxury Western lifestyle were traps. Traps to lock us all in this matrix of self-centredness, self-indulgence, and materialism. We became lazy, liberal, worshippers of selves. Feasting at the table of those very people who despise us and want us dead and burning in hell. We buy their rubbish, their politics, their lies and broken promises. One need only take a glimpse of history, to see where this happened once before.

Believe it or not, this happened with the Jewish people. During their captivity under the Babylonian empire, many Jews embraced Babylonian rituals to worship their gods. Forsaking their one true God, they followed after other nations’ ways, adopting their values and beliefs. Sacrificing their children at the alter of prosperity, they brought upon their own demise. We can say the same happened to us in the West. Established as predominantly Christian nations, (if only culturally) we removed God from education, stopped going to church, and stopped procreating. If people are angry about where the West is today and what they’ve become as a people, there’s only one person to blame and that is the self.

Many love to preach and elevate themselves as saviours of the universe, perpetuating the lie that Jews are the evil ones. Taking it upon themselves to radicalise everyone they speak with of this “evil Jewish plot”. They should take some age old advice, take a history lesson, learn something from the dead, rise up and be the change they would like to see in the world. No good ever came from attacking God’s people.

I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

https://www.bible.com/114/gen.12.3.nkjv

Consequently, the men responsible for stickering were caught and charged, whilst legal proceedings continue against the school. In the meantime, the violence and racism continues with nothing gained or achieved. If we leave one legacy for our children or the next generation, let it be this. Become a true follower of God, live your best life in Christ and stop playing the blame game. Seriously.

You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Going To Nineveh.

Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.

Jonah 1:2 KJV

The Christian clarion call is to preach the word of Christ. It is our mission, our one purpose in life. When I look at other Christians, I marvel at how well they do this. They have the right answer for every question regardless of how stupid the question, because let’s face it, some questions really are stupid. Whomever said there was no such thing as a stupid question was just being nice. I ask stupid questions all the time. Anyway, I digress. Some evangelists seem to have all the words, the right lives, the perfect families, they are picture perfect. They love to go out and preach the word, they love everybody. They have no issues.

Speaking for myself, I don’t want to accept the mission. Give me the whale’s belly any day. I really don’t care if people get saved or not. Is it wrong that I want people to burn for the hateful, despicable, degenerate things they say and do? I don’t think so. I think at the heart of every Christian is the desire for justice and true vengeance on those who do evil.

Like Jonah, I don’t want to go to Nineveh. Nineveh was a country renowned for living degeneracy. They knew nothing of God and nothing of His ways. They wanted to live their way, feed their flesh and serve the gods of this world. They said mean things, were filthy and messed up in every sense. They had baggage that weighed a tonne. No one wants to carry that heavy load. Nineveh was uncomfortable, it tested Jonah and pushed him to the brink. Why would anyone want to hang out with Ninevites or want them saved. Let them all burn, I say!

Unfortunately and I guess to some extent, fortunately, we all must go. Not that God needs us. If we didn’t speak of His glory and goodness, the rocks would cry out. It’s for our benefit that we go. It’s hard to forget where you came from when it’s in your face every day. If we never see the lost, broken and sinful we would likely become a self-righteous, holier than thou, weak willed, lower case c christian.

Whilst Nineveh has its trials and tribulations, there’s a purpose in being there, and unlike Jonah we can rejoice in the number of people we may or may not see repent. It’s not our business to know the outcome, but only keep faithful to the call. So whether our home, work, school, social media, even church is Nineveh, let’s stay faithful. Maybe we can make like Jonah and after we speak truth, perch ourselves in a quiet place and just wait for God to work. He may not blow up the place, or He might, but He may also bring about salvation, as He did in Nineveh. And that’s always worth the wait. We might find out soon what that feels like. Only God knows.

The Tragic Death and Death of Aaron Carter.

“I am not how some people try to paint me,” he told the outlet. “If somebody wants to call me a train wreck, well, I’ve been a train that’s been wrecked multiple times and derailed by many different things.”


Aaron Carter, August 2022.

Young American singer-songwriter Aaron Carter was found dead in his bathtub at his California home at just 34 years of age. Needless to say, we all know what drove him to his sad, almost predictable end. A child star life, sexual abuse, followed by a life of drugs, legal issues, mental illness, and failed comebacks.

Aaron Carter’s childhood career was controlled by criminal manager Lou Pearlman who also managed Backstreet Boys which his older brother Nick was a member and NSYNC. Lou Pearlman exploited young boys in exchange for fame and fortune destroying Aaron Carter’s life, corrupting him from the age of 7, and sending him on a lifelong downward spiral to hell on earth.

Aaron Carter always denied he was sexually abused by Pearlman though his mother Jane believes Pearlman was inappropriate with his brother Nick. Aaron accused his sister Leslie Carter also a singer who died of a drug overdose in 2012 of sexual abuse when he was a child. At the beginning of 2020, Aaron sold naked photos on OnlyFans. In September this year, he lost custody of his 10-month-old son and went back into a drug rehabilitation facility. His final tweet before he died attempted to reach up to rapper Ye (formerly known as Kayne West for a man-to-man talk)

Such tragedies are rampant in our ungodly, degenerate society. This is the real epidemic. We accept these things happen yet we continue to attend movies and concerts like it’s no one’s business. But it’s everyone’s business because there are powerful people exploiting young children for our entertainment. Heartbreaking stories continue to pour out of Hollywood about young child stars’ lives coming to an unexpected or premature end. When will enough be enough?

At what point do we give the flicks the flick, switch off the iPods or delete iTunes and Spotify. We don’t, because the entertainment industry wields such power over the naïve masses. We are a mesmerized class of indiscriminate consumers who mindlessly absorb movies and music like it’s junk food. We become complicit in this abuse by just viewing it as something that happens in showbiz.

We don’t think twice anymore when we purchase tickets to the next boy band for our young teen who “just wants to go cos all my friends are going”. Have we ever stopped to explain to our offspring that many boys in boy bands have got seriously messed with by some messed up groomer? That those boys on stage might be high on something while they dance and sing to our roaring and clapping. That they are not safe when the show is over and they go back to the hotel with their groomer who likely has other groomer mates on the road with those boys.

We see these tragedies caused by abuse coming but we continue turn blind eyes to the sordid entertainment industry. We are no better than Aaron’s parents who allowed him to get caught up in the dream of fame and fortune, who practically sold him downriver as a slave to be used, abused and tossed around like a piece of meat at the Colosseum. It is a sad and tragic story. But we have become addicted to being entertained. My heart goes out to all the Aaron Carters out there, may they rest in peace. I often wonder what could’ve become of them had they only known Jesus. As for Carter’s abusers, hell awaits them.

Hope in Christ

“Hope means hoping when things are hopeless, or it is no virtue at all… As long as matters are really hopeful, hope is mere flattery or platitude; it is only when everything is hopeless that hope begins to be a strength.”

G.K. Chesterton

Jarius ruler of the synagogue, a leader of Jews was brought to his knees in desperation before Jesus because his daughter was dying. He risked prominent status, ridicule, and criticism in hopes of healing for his daughter.

While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not be afraid; only believe.””
‭‭Mark‬ ‭5:35-36‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

https://www.bible.com/114/mrk.5.35-36.nkjv

The ruler’s journey to healing taught him patience, and other-centredness. The death of his daughter and death to self, brought about new life. In allowing Jesus time to stop and heal the woman with the issue of blood, he learned to put others before him. Knowing she was healed just by laying her hand on Jesus, he was hopeful of what Jesus could do by laying His hand on his daughter.

“Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.” Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?””
‭‭

Mark‬ ‭5:25-30‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/114/mrk.5.25-30.nkjv

Upon arriving back at his home with Jesus, the situation seemed hopeless. The detractors were filled with hopelessness, and faithlessness. They mocked and ridiculed when they saw Jesus. But Jesus came to save. He resurrected the daughter, glorifying not only God, but the ruler, Jairus.

“And they ridiculed Him. But when He had put them all outside, He took the father and the mother of the child, and those who were with Him, and entered where the child was lying. Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.””

Mark‬ ‭5:40‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/114/mrk.5.40.nkjv

What are your anxieties and fears? What are your issues? Hope in Christ, believe, and rise without fear. Christ can turn your hopelessness into hopefulness. Just like in the case of Jarius, He will fulfill His promises. He will not put you to shame for your hope in Him.

“To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me. Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause.”

March for the Babies Still Alive and Growing Strong.

October 8, 2022 Tim Wilms and Margo Huss

The March for the Babies was able to make its return to the streets of Melbourne in 2022 after Dan Andrews’ lockdowns forced the annual pro-life event online. The march is held on the second Saturday of October near or on the anniversary of the passing of the Abortion Law Reform Act 2008 in Victoria which legalized abortion in the state up until birth to demand its repeal and for all life including the unborn to be protected by the law.

The Victorian Health Minister in 2008 who spearheaded this extreme abortion law was the current Premier of Victoria Dan Andrews. This week Dan Andrews attacked the Anglican-affiliated City on the Hill Church for being against abortion because its chair Andrew Thorburn was briefly the CEO of the Essendon Football Club. Sadly for Dan, this did not stop Christians present from praying publicly, with Pastor Victor Soo leading the prayer from the podium.

The march is led by the President of the March for the Babies Victorian MLC Bernie Finn. Once again, he hosted the march with propriety and his usual witty candour, keeping the people in high spirits. Bernie had been a loyal member of the Liberal Party for 40 years and was the Member for Tullamarine from 1992 to 1999 and has represented the Western Metro Region in the Legislative Council. Victorian Liberal Leader Matthew Guy led a successful campaign to expel Bernie Finn from the Victorian Liberal Partyroom.

Bernie Finn has since rejoined the Democratic Labour Party which he was a member of and candidate for in the early 1980s. Bernie will be recontesting his seat at the Victorian state election on November 26. The recently revived Family First Party also had a presence at the march and will also be contesting the state election.

Every march up to 2019 had begun at Treasury Gardens and finished at a sound stage outside Victorian Parliament House with speeches and songs. But the space outside Victoria’s Parliament House had been booked by the pro-abortion counter-protestors which includes Antifa, Socialists, and members of the Reason and Animal Justice Parties. Therefore the sound stage was located back at Treasury Gardens. Victoria Police wouldn’t even allow the marchers to just walk past Parliament House for ‘safety reasons’.

Still, no amount of security could stop the pro-abortionists from interrupting a peaceful pro-life protest. There were three interruptions from pro-abortion advocates during the formal proceedings including two women who ran up on stage.

The main chant from the pro-abortion infiltrators was that ‘pro-life is a lie’, whatever that means. The only lie being told today is the one telling women that it is ok to kill one’s baby in utero. Thankfully, Victoria Police knew which side to take this time and with the assistance of the Australian Peacemakers hauled them out quickly. Whilst detractors’ behavior was hateful and vitriolic the pro-lifers remained calm and loving. Maybe this is something they can reflect on.

The main speakers were the retiring Liberal Member for Narracan Gary Blackwood, Kay Painter a pro-life abortion regret activist from Idaho in the United States, and Jasmine Yuen the Victorian Director of the Australian Christian Lobby. There were easily over 1000 pro-life marchers in attendance for the first March for the Babies in 3 years. Given the current anti-Christian culture which exists today, it was a change seeing so many Christians rally together to take a stand for life. With a state election a month and a half away the abhorrent state of Victoria’s abortion laws will certainly be on many voters’ minds. Let’s hope and pray this is reflected in the ballot boxes.

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Dai Le, The New Face of Australian Patriotism.

“When eating fruit, remember the one who planted the tree.”

Vietnamese Proverb

Dai Le the new independent MP for Fowler gave an emotional maiden speech in parliament on Monday. Cloaked in traditional Vietnamese dress made from fabric printed with the Australian flag, Le stood gracefully, hailing Australia’s embrace of her and her family. Le’s victory over Former Senator Kristina Keneally is one to celebrate and her patriotism as an immigrant should put many traditional and native Australians to shame.

Australia’s immigration system used to operate on the infamous White Australia Policy. It had problems accepting foreigners, especially those from Asia. Only white Europeans were allowed on Australian shores. Hence racial wars and cultural clashes were felt and seen from the ground up, dating way back before 1971. Le’s maiden speech compared with Hanson’s 1996 maiden speech ironically highlights how far Australia has come in crossing racial divides.

Where Hanson’s speech asserted that, Australia was in danger of being “swamped by Asians”, and that these immigrants “have their own culture and religion, form ghettos and do not assimilate” Le’s was about Australia’s “hope, freedom and endless possibilities”. Sadly, Hanson’s flag-waving patriotism was not as well-received. Whilst Hanson’s observations were correct of many immigrants in general, Dai Le and the South-East Asian community have assimilated well into Australian culture.

Dai Le’s parliamentary attire alone, was enough to put Hanson’s 1996 concerns to rest. Many do have their own culture, and have formed a kind of ghetto, as represented by the seat of Fowler. However, values and beliefs are similar. Kinship, gratitude and humility maketh nations great. Le’s presence in parliament on Monday, was a testament to our hospitable country, and the strength and resilience of the Australian-South-East Asian community at large. The privileges Dai Le and her family enjoy today were not simply handed over to them. They, like many Asians of old, worked hard to accomplish all that they have. A far cry from today’s current influx.

Dai Le standing before parliament on Monday drove home anther valid point. That despite the perpetually offended communist class, and the racist greens senators, Australia is a welcoming and multicultural nation. Whilst Le is celebrated for her choice outfit, let’s remember what happened recently to one other Aussie Patriot. Rick Turner, was accused for inciting violence for standing draped in Australian flag on Australia Day. He was violently dragged across the ground and almost lynched. It is interesting to see none of Turner’s accusers at parliament on Monday, ready to lynch Le.

Lydia Thorpe and Adam Bandt are two traitorous Australians born and bred. They thumb their privileged (mostly) white noses at the Australian flag and everything it represents. Australia is in danger of falling to the very woke, very entitled, truly privileged class of fascists who want everything including Australia’s blood and soil. They accuse Australians for stealing land and wiping out a people, yet other voices from the podium tell a different story. The underprivileged, colorful communities show Australians love and gratitude. Guaranteed, they are not receiving half the benefits received by the privileged parliamentary class. Yet Le’s speech recognized the necessity of giving back to community, giving hope to Australia.

Love it or hate it, Australia is a melting pot of diverse ethnicities. Yet racism continues to tar its reputation. When certain groups cannot recognize the blessings and privilege we all enjoy today due to colonisation, they are being racist. The public square is no longer safe and welcoming of all Australians, especially those who pioneered and built it from the ground up. As we reflect on what it truly means to be Australian, let us also remember those who came before us, those who contributed to making this country what it is today, and those who planted those fruit trees many moons ago. Dai Le’s presence in parliament should make us all proud to be Australian.

The Sacred Rainbow-Coloured Cow Strikes Again. Victoria’s 6.8 Million Dollar Gay Pride Festival.

If you haven’t hired a team of people who are of color, female, and/or LGBT to actively turn over every stone, to scope out every nook and cranny, to pop out of every bush, to find every qualified underrepresented founder in this country, you’re going to miss out on a lot of money when the rest of the investment world gets it.

Recently, the Andrews Government budgeted almost seven million dollars of Victorian taxpayers’ money over 4 years towards an annual two-month Pride Festival. It is to begin this December after the state election and in the lead-up to the Christmas season and throughout the summer school holidays. The sacred rainbow-colored cow has gone crazy with pride. Breaking out of the proverbial closet, it is ready to buck at anything that moves.

Difficult as it is to believe, Homosexuality and Homosexual acts used to be illegal in Australia as recently as the late 20th Century. In 1975, South Australia was the first state to decriminalise it. Believe it or not, there was a time when sexual perversion was not tolerated. Open sexual displays of affection, even from heterosexual couples was unacceptable. “Get a room!” was the cry of the majority, because honestly, unless one is sick in the head, those acts should be reserved for the intimacy of ones bedroom. Today, however, they have more than their fair share of rights and legalised sodomy laws. A far cry from yesteryears gone by.

Unfortunately, due its increasing powers, it has become an offence to disagree with and/or speak out against their lifestyles. Any attempts at refusing to do their bidding or even refusal to celebrate their ways, is considered offensive and will not be tolerated. The tolerant LGBTQIA+ tolerance has its own boundaries and don’t anyone dare cross it, as many individuals have recently discovered.

Over the last few years alone, politicians, medical experts, sportsmen, and ordinary citizenry have come under fire for daring to speak against or exercise their freedom of conscience. Katherine Deves, an Australian lawyer who ran as a Liberal candidate in this year’s federal election, was victimised simply for recognizing biological facts. In standing against trans women in women’s sports, she was forced to apologise twice to the perpetually offended class. Israel Folau, a Rugby league football legend was crucified and cancelled for daring to express his religious beliefs on his personal platform. British doctor David Mackareth, was sacked for refusing to call a patient by his preferred pronoun. Most recently, Australian political activist Neil Erikson, is sentenced to forty days imprisonment for words spoken out a gay fake church.

Certainly anyone speaking out against the LGBTQIA+ powerhouse has nothing against individuals who live that lifestyle. Ask the majority of people their opinions and they don’t care. Live and let live is the attitude of most. However, the rainbow fascists have no intentions of allowing people who hold such views to live freely. They want to take over and won’t be happy until the whole world is at their footstool.

Already they have so many rights and opportunities to do and say whatever they please. They are widely accepted and tolerated. Diversity and inclusion workplace laws are in place for whoever might feel a little slighted by “violent” words. The whole world is forced to endure their overt, degenerate images. Even children are not safe from their ideology as unisex toilets continue to crop up at even Christian schools all around the country.

This summer we are about to endure mass pornographic imagery on a large scale, parade itself unashamedly before an unwitting, unprepared or confused audience. All this funded by our governments, and paid for with our taxes. One could be walking down the street, when suddenly images of half naked men, or trans women, dancing sensually, could appear before yours or (God forbid) your children’s eyes.

Such an event occurred once annually. This year we have had to endure street parties, parades, and Mardis Gras, all year round. From inner city Melbourne right through to regional Victoria. From “Wear Purple Day” to “Intersex Awareness Day” to “Transgender Day of Remembrance”, the days are accumulating. Christmas and summer will no longer be the same. Gone are the days when families could enjoy a trip to the city to enjoy G-Rated, summer nights and Christmas lights. Instead, they will be faced with X-Rated, sexualised images of debauchery and lewd acts.

It is great LGBTQIA+ community is no longer physically attacked and treated like criminals. They even have their same-sex marriages recognized. They are free to do what they like with their bodies. But at what point does one group’s rights start to encroach and impinge on anothers’? We are facing the beginning of the end when Christian Heterosexuals are no longer free to practice their faith, without being subjected to blatant sexual images, or vexatious litigation. Two months of pride will become a mandatory daily pride fest. Look out if you or your children are not found on bended knees at the sacred cow’s altar.

Climate Change and the worship of Baal.

“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;”
‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3:1-2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/114/ecc.3.1-2.nkjv

Climate cultists and green activists have fallen prey to mad, corrupt or misguided scientists. The push to save the planet, keep the coal in the ground and switch to renewable energy have become the latest talking points of every politician, in every seat of govt, and every CEO of every large corporation, in every major city, worldwide. Preserving the planet has become the new religion and the people in power will stop at nothing to protect their faith, even if it means culling the population.

The latest push by many Melbourne local councils in a bid to save the planet, is to increase green waste collection services to weekly and reduce general rubbish collection to fortnightly. The rational behind this illogical move is that it would reduce landfill, and costs associated with rubbish dumping. Anyone with half a brain knows this initiative only prolongs the inevitable. Not to mention, green waste can be used in compost bins for the avid gardener. It makes no sense to increase this collection.

With soaring energy bills threatening the livelihoods of many small businesses across the globe, the pressure for them to comply with climate cultic mandates is being felt at the breadlines. Domestic flights within Europe are also being discouraged and overpriced in hopes more people would Eurail instead. Flying and holidays will soon be reserved for the privileged few who can afford the exorbitant prices.

Anyone living in the reality that exists knows that climate cultists know nothing about economics and if they do, they are just opportunistic, money grubbing whores, feasting at the table of corruption and lies. The earth is their cash cow, and the naive proletariat is more than happy to bow down at its feet with donations galore. Even if that means living in a pod and eating bugs.

Climate cultists tell us we have grown too large in number, that we need to stop procreating, stop eating, stop polluting, stop breathing. They mask us, inject us, and bind us in financial chains. It almost feels like those in high places are laughing hysterically at the sight of masses sacrificing their livelihoods and children all for the sake of this imaginary god. They “worship and serve the creature rather than the Creator”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:25‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/114/rom.1.25.nkjv

This is not a new thing, Christians know people have worshipped the earth for centuries now. The sacrificing of children to Ba’al, the god of weather and agriculture, was common practice in ancient biblical times. Sin knows no boundaries and crosses over all generations. The human tendency is to worship something, God created us that way. If not Him, then Ba’al.

The reality is no amount of sacrifices can stop the planet from going through its necessary cycle. That’s not to say we shouldn’t look after the earth, take care of the animals, and create a circular, sustainable, environment. But if that means totalitarian control over energy sources, what we eat, how we live and how and where to holiday, then it has gone too far. Sadly, climate cuckoos have taken over the coupe and they are rolling out their Zero Emissions 2050 agenda. God help all those who dare stand in their way.

The Pub, The Spit, and The Cult of Intolerance in Political Discourse.

“. . .the narrow ridge is the meeting place of the we”

~~Martin Buber

Jimeone Roberts, an alleged known neo Nazi recently had his beer spat in at an Irish pub because he was sporting a black sun tattoo. The Sonnenrad, or “sun wheel”, is a symbol that was used by the Nazis in Germany. It is also the same symbol used by the Azov Battalion in Ukraine, which many support. The tattoo can be offensive to some, it might even be distasteful and ugly to those who actually know its history, but what kind of society have we become when spitting in people’s beer is acceptable simply because we disagree with their politics. Distasteful as Jimeone‘s politics may be to many, there is no justification for spitting in ones beer. If the young bar tender thought himself far above Jimeone, by spitting in his beer, he put himself at the same level.

There are many examples of this kind of behavior, both online and off. People have become intolerant. The world has become one huge, divisive, ugly, schoolyard. Egging politicians, stickering hateful propaganda, the attacking of alternative news media and mainstream journalists. There are countless more examples. Not to mention trolls and fake accounts online, confidently spew out hatred, causing division and angst with memes, photoshopped pics and doxxing. Such ugly behaviour exists on all sides and has contributed to anger and fear, causing many to flee for safety in echo chambers.

Echo chambers are where political discourse goes to die. Safe spaces wherein individuals discuss political ideas, stroke each other’s egos and pat each other’s backs. Congratulatory, emphatic agreements of mutual hatred towards the enemy litter these platforms. Socio-political and cultural views can never be challenged, tested or proven, leaving individuals emotionally and intellectually immature. Boring, uninspiring, and zombifying, echo chambers are to be avoided at all costs.

Maturity is borne when people can discuss ideas, no matter how distasteful, civilly and respectfully. The dichotomous left/right narrative is designed to encourage genuine, robust discussions. It is why our parliamentary process exists. Parliament House was designed for discussion and debate. It takes courageous people, strong personalities and fearless free thinkers to make great societies. It might get ugly, fiery and contentious, but people are sharpening each other’s minds, gleaning the best of all sides to create what we have come to know as free, liberal democracies.

When discussing political or philosophical ideas, we can all learn from Buber’s philosophy of dialogue. We can all exist on the narrow ridge he speaks of. It is the place where opposing views can meet, where the I-thou or us vs them dichotomy can duel. Often this requires a coming together, mutual consent to listen, understand and respect each other’s minds. Setting aside biases and prejudices for a moment to perhaps get a glimpse of the other side. Sometimes concluding with agreement, concession or conciliation, and more often agreeing to disagree. Sadly, this almost never happens.

The world would be a better place if everyone strived to see things from others’ perspectives or try to understand another’s point of view. The civil thing for that bar tender to do would have been to pour the beer and enter into polite discourse with Jimeone. Not everyone will agree on everything, but we can still be loving and compassionate throughout the process. We need only look to Christ for an example. Christ stands at the centre of the narrow ridge with His arms outstretched, beckoning to all that might listen. It is why He sat with the wine bibbers, and tax collectors, sinners in the eyes of self righteous religious leaders who enjoyed their echo chambers. More people need to be more like Christ.

“And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” When Jesus heard that, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭9:11-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Neil Erikson Calls Out Sin in the Church.

“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.”
Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956

It is never easy speaking truth, calling out sin, telling people they are wrong. Unless one truly is evil, no one really enjoys confrontation. Most people would much rather keep the peace and mind their own business. Many prefer to bury their heads in the sand and ignore sin altogether. Pretending such things has nothing to do with them, they keep on walking.

Not so with Neil Erikson. On trial again in the county court, he has appealed the magistrate’s original sentence of 10 weeks imprisonment for calling out evil at a post-modern, liberal, self-proclaimed Christian church. Under the guise of Christianity, the “church”, formally based in Hawthorn, was teaching all manner of blasphemies and fallacies to a naive audience who know nothing about Jesus or the Bible.

Sitting in the audience myself, I can testify there were some major flaws in their theology but that is another story. Let’s just say I had some questions which I did not get to ask when Neil stood up requesting to speak. He was invited up to the front where he began to question them on marrying homosexuals. He proceeded to enlighten them on what the Bible says about gay marriage and homosexuality, when the audience stood up in unison and moved forward threateningly.

Fearing for his safety, as they looked ready to lynch him, I also made my way to the front, ready to get in the middle if necessary. However, things did not get violent until later when there was a small physical altercation between Neil and another guy. A little self defense on Neil’s part. Thankfully, nothing but feelings were hurt that night.

According to sanctimonious, woke liberals, words are violent. Neil Erikson may as well have entered the church, gun in hand and shot down the congregation. But that is not what happened. So some people took offence, they got upset. But does that really warrant a lawsuit, jail time or cancellation of a person’s life, name or personhood to the point where he is blacklisted from almost every public event in the country.

Orwell wrote of this very situation in his novel, 1984. “Double think” is the idea that one can hold two contradictory ideas simultaneously. Whilst the church wanted the freedom to preach lies, they were oppressing Neil’s freedom to speak truth. The oppressed becomes the oppressor and round we go on the merry-go-round.

Neil is far from perfect. He definitely has his flaws, like all of us. Anyone claiming to be perfect or better than Neil is deluding themselves. There is none righteous but one Jesus Christ, Whom has said “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭6:9-10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/114/1co.6.9-10.nkjv

The Bible is clear on Christian truths, homosexuality is a sin. The sin in itself does not bother us, people can sleep with whomever or whatever they like. We have homosexual friends. The issue we have is what it does to God’s word.

A self-proclaiming Christian Church has no business condoning homosexuality, marrying homosexuals and teaching its naive congregation that it is acceptable in the sight of God. It is not to be accepted nor tolerated. Jesus would not have tolerated it as He did not tolerate the money changers in the temple. He “drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.“
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭21:12-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Neil Erikson did nothing wrong. He was being faithful in acting on his conscience. Calling out sin in the Church is necessary and right. If only more Christians would be so bold and courageous. Could Neil have been more sensitive or gentle in his approach? Perhaps. But John the Baptist called out evil just as ferociously in the face of an adulterous King and his mistress. He said to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.” Therefore Herodias held it against him and wanted to kill him” (Mark‬ ‭6:17-19‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

John the Baptist got his head chopped off, because as we all know, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. The mistress used her daughter to appeal the King. “So she, having been prompted by her mother, said, “Give me John the Baptist’s head here on a platter.”” (Matthew‬ ‭14:8‬ ‭NKJV)‬‬

The verdict day for the appeal for which he was able to acquire legal representation, is set for August 29th. The whole ordeal has not been easy for Neil. Representing himself in the Magistrates’ court, it has been an arduous 3 year process of collecting evidence, filing reports, and subpoenas. He has endured much hostility, setbacks and resistance from all those involved, not to mention the public persecution. People want his head on a platter. It is no easy feat exposing these fake churches.

Let’s pray for Neil and all those bold enough to rock the boat for the sake of truth. Let’s pray their faith in Jesus Christ grows ever stronger, that they continue to fight the good fight with wisdom and discernment, knowing which battles are worth fighting.
